The Music of the High Holy Days
Click here to view the first session and here to view the second session of discussions with Cantor Goldstein in a preparation of the High Holy Days.  Hear the majestic music that makes us think of the Days of Awe including different versions and a variety of musical settings to give a sense of how our worship continues to evolve. 





How to Make the High Holy Days Holy at Home

Selichot Service
Click here to watch this beautiful and inspiring service as we approach the Days of Awe.  As is NSCI tradition, we changed our Torah coverings from their regular adornments to pure white for the High Holy Days, and with melody and meditation, prayer and reflection, watch as we set the groundwork for this year’s work of teshuvah together.




Study of the Akeidah (The Binding of Isaac)
Each year we hear the Akeidah story on Rosh Hashanah morning. In the video, Cantor Goldstein explored this familiar portion, its significance, and its meaning. There may be a surprise or two as well. Click here to watch the video.






Sukkot at Home!
Every year, Sukkot offers us the opportunity to celebrate one of the most beautiful and celebratory home-based Jewish experiences through the building/assembly and decoration of our own sukkah - a temporary home - outdoors.  There are many pre-assembled kits you can buy online that make assembly very simple, or you can construct your own. Check the Sukkot resources for instruction guides and other great Sukkot tips.
