Our "Return Again" Kol Nidre services have drawn thousands to a spirited outdoor worship experience unlike any other in Washington, DC. Since then, "Return Again" has evolved into a wildly successful musical Shabbat Program. And now Rabbi Lauren Holtzblatt & Elie Greenberg present this year's "Return Again" services to fill your holidays with meaning, music & transcendence. Also join us in the Beit Midrash at 10:45am for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Return Again day services.
