Join Hinenu for the High Holy Days--the turning of the year, turning our attention to our relationships, and turning to face one another.

This year as we welcome in the new year, we'll explore the theme of makom. The Hebrew word for place, as well as a name for God, asks us to engage with the land we live on, and how we understand it as sacred. What makes a group of people a community--and what transforms a physical place into a makom? This season as we mark returning again to the same place, in the same time, another year older, we notice what has grown, what has stayed steady, what needs re-invigoration.

Expect music, poetry, interwoven through a service using Kol HaNeshamah High Holy Day prayerbook.

All services are open to absolutely everyone and accessible by a ramp.

We invite you to make a contribution to help pay for significant the costs of this season, to cover rental, staff, supplies, and food costs as you are able. Equally divided, the cost per adult for services is $75. The cost per child is $35. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please register below so we know to expect you!

All services unless otherwise indicated will be at Homewood Friends, 3107 N Charles Street, Baltimore MD 21218.

To help us best accomodate any accessibility needs, please register by Sunday September 1.
With questions about accessibility, registration, or anything at all, please contact highholydays@hinenubaltimore.org.

Childcare and youth programing will be provided throughout the High Holy days, noted at services marked with an asterisk*.
Childcare will be offered for children under 5, we ask that they are already potty trained. Youth programming will be offered for children ages 5-13.
Young people are welcome to be in services any time (cooing, fussing, crying, reading comics welcome from adults and children alike!)
