Where Are You Spending Your Holiday?

We’ve got the lowdown on D.C., anyway

Print Email

Tablet Magazine (and The Scroll) will not be publishing new content on Thursday and Friday in observance of Rosh Hashanah. (Though it’s worth mentioning that we’re not turning the whole Website off, so if you happen to find yourself needing a recipe for an extra dish or something … .) Many of our staffers, of course, will be in services, as no doubt will many of our readers. Where will you be? Here, I’ll start:

My family actually hasn’t decided if we are going to go to where we normally go, our longtime congregation of Adas Israel in Washington, D.C., or if we are going to mix it up this year and head downtown to services at what used to be Adas, the historic synagogue at Sixth and I. Via email, I’ve learned that all three historic former synagogues in D.C.’s Chinatown will be hosting 6,000 Jews come these High Holidays.

So that’s me. It might be a nice thing to use the comments to tell people where you’ll be spending your Rosh Hashanah—and, maybe, where they can spend theirs. Let’s do some crowd-sourcing, people!

I’m with Marc. My family first joined Adas Israel in 1912. My parents were married there.

Since growing up and marrying, we’ve been members of a number of synagogues, Conservative, Reform, “New Age” and have been active in all of them.

Last year I went to 2nd day R.H. Services at 6th & I (The old Adas). I felt that I’d come home.

In looking around at the ages of those in attendance, and the variation of observance, it was quite obvious that institutions, such as this, are the future of Judaism.
