High Holy Days


High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and re-connection.  We welcome you to join us in celebrating and observing these special Holy days.  We offer a variety of services to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse community. Please see the Schedule of Services for a list of dates, times, and locations of services. 

Come share the spirit and wisdom of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. These Holy Days are a time of prayer, music, reflection and learning.  Come and join our congregational family for a spiritually deep High Holy Day experience.

Listen to a recording our our neilah service.

Tashlich to follow services at Evergreen Park

1500 Park Ave, Bremerton, WA 98337
Directions provided day of event.
Please bring a sack lunch and beverage to enjoy at the park.


Tashlich is a very meaningful Jewish practice in which Jews go to a body of water, such as a river, stream, or ocean, to cast away their sins by symbolically tossing bread into the water. This physical act inspires us to remember our actions, right our wrongs, and refocus ourselves for the New Year. To learn more, CLICK HERE: Rosh Hashanah Customs

Friday, Sept. 29


This year, Rabbi Mitch will be joined by Cantorial Soloist, Beth Hamon.

Beth is a bicycle-loving, musical autodidact whose contemporary folk songs straddle the line between Jewish and secular themes of justice, hope, renewal and love. She travels the country visiting synagogues, camps and community centers as an artist- and scholar-in-residence.  When not traveling, she serves as a music-leader at Havurah Shalom in Portland, Oregon. CBH is thrilled to welcome her to our part of the Jewish universe and so grateful that she will be sharing her talents with us.
