Event Descriptions

Shofar Class

Come learn to blow the Shofar!  Attendance at both classes is not mandatory, but preferred.  Please bring your own shofar if you have one.  We will have a limited number of Shofars available to borrow, please call the office at 404.250.3338 if you will need one.  After becoming an expert, we hope you will sign up to help with the daily Shofar blows and even with blowing Shofar on the High Holidays.

Shofar Blow

We will be leading up to the High Holidays with a daily Shofar Blow.  Watch the COH website for times and locations.  Want to schedule a shofar blow at a location near you?  Call the office at 404.250.3338.

Adult Education: Return Anew - An exploration of the High Holidays and Mahzor Lev Shalem

Join Rabbi Lauren and Dr. Amy with part orientation and part spiritual exploration of the new Mahzor.  Find what is familiar, but also what is new with its pages as you prepare for the High Holidays.

Shir Hadash: High Holiday Song Circles

Join Rabbi Lauren, Dr. Amy and Rabbi Ariel Wolpe to enjoy some traditional holiday melodies and to learn new ones.  

Selichot and Havdalah: Reading and Discussion, Wrestling in Jerusalem

Join Rabbi Lauren and Rabbi Ellen for Havdalah, followed by a reading and discussion of Wrestling in Jerusalem, a critically acclaimed solo play and feature film about the Israeli-Palestinian story.  

Spiritual Hike at Big Trees

Prepare for the High Holidays with a walk through nature.  Along your walk there will be various stations led by COH members that will guide you through a spiritual discovery as we begin asking what it means to Return Anew.  Hike groups will be limited to 15 people and will be staggered so RSVP is required.  We will have time slots for those that want a more active experience and other slots for those that prefer more traditional discussion.

Services

While we are hoping to welcome most of you back to the sanctuary for services this year, we will also be providing the option to participate via Zoom.  We ask that anyone participating in leading the service or given an honor, participate in person.  While vaccinated congregants may not be required to wear masks, we request that anyone not fully vaccinated continue to wear a mask when in the shul.  Because of the uncertain nature of COVID, we will not confirm until a few weeks before services the number of congregants allowed in the sanctuary (we hope that this number grows) and therefore will not confirm which services you will receive tickets to attend in person until mid-August.  To assist us in our planning and to accommodate as many congregants as possible, we are asking each household to complete a survey by clicking here. Please note, at this time we are only planning to host members in the sanctuary.  In the hope that this may change, please provide counts for any additional tickets you would like for the services for adult children, visiting family and friends, etc.  Please contact the office at 404.250.3338 if you are/have a potential new member interested in attending services.

Youth Programming and Babysitting 

Youth programming will occur for in person attendees from 10:00am-1:00pm on both days of Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur. Any unvaccinated children will be required to wear a mask when indoors or unable to socially distance.  We are working to provide as much outdoor programming as possible.

Babysitting will be offered at an additional charge based on interest.

Outdoor Family Service- Rosh HaShana Day 2

Come join us for an outdoor joint family service and tashlich at Chastain Park for the young and young at heart with special guest Eliana Light, co-sponsored by COH and Ahavath Achim (AA).  As this is outdoors, masks will not be required.

 

Minyan & Arlington Cemetery Visit

Join us for Minyan at 9:15AM, followed immediately by the Cemetery visitation and ceremony at the COH section of
Arlington. Led by Rabbi Lauren.

Tashlich

Please join Or Hadash at Morgan Falls for Tashlich followed by a BYO picnic lunch.

Jonah

Our COH youth are excited to be back in the sanctuary for a special performance of Jonah this year. You don’t want to miss it!
