HCS is thrilled to announce  that Rabbi Shoshana Leis and Cantor Ruth Ossher will be co leading services with Rachel Izes leading children's services.

Participation

Members of the ritual committee will be in touch to see if and how you would like to participate in this year's High Holiday services, whether it is reading a Torah portion or Haftarah; reading blessings in Hebrew or a prayer in English; or something nonverbal (such as opening the ark, carrying the Torah, or dressing the Torah).  

For children

HCS is very excited to have Rachel Izes join us to lead the children's services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Rachel brings song, creativity and love of tradition to our youth services.  Children's services are followed by supervised children's activities until the end of morning services.
