Every year, the shofar sounds a call to action, sending us out into a new year inspired to transform our lives and rebuild our world. At Tzedek Chicago, we believe Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur prayers should show us how to be truly accountable to one another, to celebrate the a Jewish community rooted in common values of equity, justice and peace, to shake off our complacency and greet this new season ready to create the world we know is possible!

High Holidays at Tzedek Chicago will feature our characteristic mix of prayer, music, poetry, contemplation, teaching/learning, and direct action. Our service will be led by Rabbi Brant Rosen, cantorial soloist Leah Shoshanah and our new rabbinic intern May Ye. We will also feature musician Steve Gibons and musician/poet Adam Gottlieb as well as a variety of guest musicians, poets and speakers. 


All services will take place

at the Irish American Heritage Center, Chicago
