10:00 AM - 11:30 AMLair o' the Bear Park, 22550 State Highway 74, Idledale, CO 80453

Join three dynamic front-range congregations on the banks of picturesque Lower Bear Creek to celebrate the Jewish New Year (on Wednesday morning, Sept 8).  Share song, story, shofar blasts and bread crumb tossing, with members of Congregation Beth Evergreen (Evergreen), B'nai Havurah (Denver) and B'nai Chaim (Morrison) at Lair O' the Bear Park for an outdoor Rosh Hashanah service.  All are welcome.  Please pre-register, prepare to be outside in the sun (and/or rain), and bring your own seating (e.g camping chairs).  The meeting spot is a short 100' walk from the parking lot towards the creek, south of the parking lot.  

The leadership of the service will be shared and everyone in attendance will be invited to play a role.  Facilitating the service will be Rabbi Jamie Arnold, Laura Berman, and Penny Drucker from Congregation Beth Evergreen, Hal Aqua of B'nai Havurah, and Rabbi/Cantor Kim Harris from B'Chaim.  There will be lots of great music and opportunities for reflection and discussion.

 The current schedule is as follows:
