High Holy Days 2022/5783

What Are The High Holy Days?

Everything is possible. Things don’t have to be as they are. We don’t have to be the people we have become. We can repair, redirect, reframe the contours of our relationships and our lives.

Mahzor (Prayer Book)

We’ll be using the Mahzor Lev Shalem For Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. If you’re a home host, you’ll be receiving them. The link to access the Mahzor (password: x) will be posted throughout our services for all of our online participants. If you hurry, you can buy a Mahzor and support IKAR, by purchasing it through our smile account on Amazon.

Yizkor Memorial Garden

During these days of awe, we invite you to visit our beautiful, peaceful, sacred space on the IKAR office patio (1737 S. La Cienega Blvd) where we are displaying photographs of and written reflections about our family members and loved ones who have died. This is one of the few opportunities we have during this time to visit a communal space that’s ours, and that is truly peaceful. Everything about it is shared: the plants, the fountains, the wind chimes, the words — it’s all yours to enjoy. So please come visit.
