Rosh Hashanah in a Secular Community

Rosh Hashanah is a sacred High Holiday in the Jewish calendar. How, then, can it possibly be observed as a secular event?

Caring & Support

If you - or another Workmen’s Circle member you know - could use some assistance during a time of need, our Caring Committee is here to help you. Whether it’s a long term illness or the death of a loved one, or perhaps a birth or an adoption, we want to be a part of your support system.

It is often hard to ask for help in times of need. Consider having a friend make the call.

Our Holiday Calendar

Holiday programs weave together readings, reflections, and music that draw on Jewish tradition as well as contemporary texts. We have created secular rituals that feel deeply meaningful and authentic, while not being centered around prayer and worship. By connecting us to each other, to our history as a people, and to our passion for social justice, our vibrant community provides a source of spirituality and belonging.  Whatever your level of Jewish knowledge, whatever the faith, ethnic, or gender diversity of your family or upbringing, you are most welcome to join us.
