High Holy Day Services with Rabbi Greenspoon

Rabbi David Greenspoon Offers Independent Jewish High Holy Day Services in Reisterstown

Rabbi David Greenspoon is offering a new option for Jewish High Holy Day services at the Fellowship Hall, 109 Main Street in Reisterstown.  These services are designed to appeal to people looking for a contemporary approach to traditional services, and are not connected to a synagogue.  Services for Rosh Hashanah, Jewish New Year, begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening, Sept. 4th and continue at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday and Friday.  Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement starts on Friday evening, Sept. 13th with Kol Nidre services at 7:10.  Yom Kippur services resume Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. with Yizkor memorial prayers recited around 11:00.

“I am excited to have Sara Cohen from Kibbutz Ketura join me as Cantorial Soloist and to offer these intimate services for heart, soul, mind, and spirit. This season is spiritually awe-filled and awe-inspiring, but too often other things get in the way like politics and fundraising.  I don’t have to do those other things. This is a great chance for people who don’t have a regular synagogue membership to connect to the High Holy Days in a warm, welcoming, and hopefully meaningful way.”

The Fellowship Hall is at Trinity Lutheran Church directly across the street from Franklin Middle School.  Pastor Tim Feasor explains the reasoning for this wonderful interfaith accommodation and support. “We believe that we make God happy when we share God’s house. We welcome Rabbi Greenspoon along with our Jewish brothers and sisters and look forward to wishing everyone a joyous New Year.”
