There are no Friday night or Saturday morning Shabbat ser vices and no Rabbi. Holiday ceremonies are lead by our President and school Principal. The unique ceremonies are not prayer-based, they are in English and focus on connecting the traditional holiday with current social issues. They often include lively group discussions, singing songs in English, Hebrew and Yiddish, Israeli folk dancing, skits and of course food, when appropriate. We begin each year with humanistic Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur ceremonies in a beautiful outdoor setting, followed by building a sukkah for Sukkot. Chanukah is celebrated with latke-making and a party and Purim with a carnival. Yom Hashoah is commemorated and Tu B’shevat and Passover are observed by feasting at community seders.
