Judaism Your Way Announces ‘Return to Joy’ Theme for Annual High Holiday Services

Known for their inclusive approach to celebrating the most sacred holidays in Judaism, Judaism Your Way is pleased to announce its return to the Denver Botanic Gardens for its annual observance of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

DENVER (September 1, 2022)Judaism Your Way is pleased to announce that following a successful High Holidays celebration in the Denver Botanic Gardens in 2021, the organization is bringing its inclusive programming to the gardens once again. The theme of this year’s event, Return to Joy, invites the Judaism Your Way community to join the organization in reflecting on the past year and celebrating the Jewish new year ahead. The spiritual gatherings will take place in-person and be live streamed for global audiences to tune in. Registration is now available for programming. All are welcome to join. 

Since its founding in 2003, Judaism Your Way has welcomed anyone seeking Jewish connection. Understanding that there are many ways to be Jewish, the organization respects and honors them all. To ensure that High Holiday activities are accessible and inclusive, all events are hosted free-of-charge. The organization will offer a full schedule of events and services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, featuring contemporary music, fresh English translations of traditional Hebrew prayers, and much more. Services will be led by Judaism Your Way’s entire Rabbinic team.

“The ancient rabbis of the Talmud thought of Yom Kippur as one of the happiest days of the year, because we get to practice forgiveness and compassion, and hopefully, through our prayer, we can return to our integrity in relationships with ourselves, one another, and the Divine,” said Rabbi Caryn Aviv, Rabbinic and Program Director for Judaism Your Way. “After an unprecedented two years, we are pleased to bring our larger community together again for meditation and reflection as we enter this new year.”

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
