Jews in Davis and the Yolo County area will join millions of others throughout the world to celebrate the beginning of the Hebrew year 5775 between Sept. 20 and Oct. 4.

Known as the Days of Awe, the most solemn time of the Jewish calendar, the period highlights the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah (New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).

Congregation Bet Haverim in Davis will observe these days at its facilities, 1715 Anderson Road. Both traditional and contemporary services will be offered.

Bet Haverim invites members and nonmembers to attend the services. Tickets are required and may be purchased from the congregation. UC Davis students with ID, visiting Israelis and active-duty military personnel will be offered free tickets as guests of the congregation. Further details are available from the Bet Haverim office at 530-758-0842 or cbhoffice2@gmail.com. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays.

A Selichot Service (penitential prayers) will begin at 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20. It will be preceded at 6 p.m. by a vegetarian potluck dinner (please bring a main or side dish to share) and an interactive program at 7 p.m. to help in preparing for the Holy Days, featuring a musical workshop using the techniques of Uncovering the Voice led by student Cantor Shanyndel Adler Eldridge.

Erev (evening) Rosh Hashanah observances begin Wednesday, Sept. 24, at 7:30 p.m., preceded by a 6:45 p.m. gathering in the Redwood Grove. Traditional and contemporary Reform services will take place in the sanctuary and social hall, respectively. The services continue Sept. 25  at 8 a.m. through 12:15 p.m. for the traditional service, and starting at 9 a.m. for the contemporary session.

The single service on the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 26, runs from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Kol Nidre (All Vows), the opening prayer for Yom Kippur, begins at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, for both traditional and contemporary services. They will be preceded by a 6:30 welcoming ceremony in the Redwood Grove. On Oct. 4, Yom Kippur observances continue with the traditional service at 8 a.m. and the contemporary service at 9 a.m. The Yizkor (memorial) ceremony will begin at 11 a.m., with the morning and early afternoon service concluding at about 1 p.m.

Following a break,Yom Kippur services continue on Oct. 4 with Mincha at 4:30 p.m. and conclude with the Ne’ilah and Havdalah at 6 and 7 p.m., respectively. A contemplative service will be offered during the afternoon break in the Bet Haverim social hall at 3 p.m.

Rabbi Greg Wolfe and student-Rabbi Beni Wajnberg will officiate, alternating between the traditional and contemporary sessions. They will be joined by several chazzanim (cantors) who will lead the melodic prayers.

The chazzanim will be soprano soloist Rebecca Plack and congregation members David Aladjem, a student-rabbi; Ernie Biberstein; Ken Firestein; Virginia Lantry; and Hallie Morrow.
