Young Adults High Holy Days Programming

Young adults (20’s and 30’s), please join us for a variety of unique program experiences this High Holy Days season.  Celebrate Rosh Hashanah at Refresh, held at the Palace Ballroom downtown (registration required).  On Tuesday, September 25 we will be serving Sangria in the Seattle Sukkah, with noshes from the tasty Napkin Friends food truck available for purchase.  On Friday, September 28 in Seattle, come to a special 4th Shabbat with the Tribe that will also celebrate Sukkot (and come early for Shabbat Junior West if you have little ones!).
