Our Celebratory Meals


On Rosh Hashanah

After Services, apples, honey, wine and challah, we’ll have a picnic on the law, so please bring a picnic lunch for you and your family. We'll then walk over to Community Park North (about ½ mile away) for Tashlich. If you prefer driving to the part, the parking lot is on Mountain Avenue.  Just meet us at the lake! 


Everyone is invited to our Yom Kippur Break-the-fast on Oct. 9 after Havdalah

Please bring vegan, vegetarian, dairy or fish dishes to share, according to your last name, as detailed below.  Do bring 8-10 servings, so that there will be enough for all of us and so that we can enjoy eating together. Non-disposable plates, cups and utensils will be provided, or bring your own. An ingredient list (or even the recipe) will be appreciated, especially by those who have dietary restrictions or allergies. If you are unable to bring  a dish, please join us anyway. There’s always room for you!

Last names starting with:

     A-G:  Salad or Fruit

     H-P:  Entrée, grains, beans or vegetables

     Q-Z:  Dessert, Beverage


The UUCP collects all food scraps and paper goods for composting.                

Directions are posted clearly on pails in the  kitchen. 

It's so easy being green!



Please join our efforts to support two local food pantries. Your generosity will greatly help those who are in need.

Visit for other ways to donate.



On Yom Kippur, we’ll collect low-salt and low-sugar food for Arm in Arm. No glass containers. Cans or plastic jars should be 16 oz. or less. Suggested items:  tuna, salmon, chicken, turkey, chili, tomato sauce, peanut butter, jelly, beans, vegetables and fruit, soup, cold cereal, oatmeal and shelf-stable milk. 

Visit for other ways to donate





To maintain our long-standing tradition of having High Holiday services open to the community without requiring tickets, we are asking for a donation of $160 per adult and $360 per family.


Payments can be mailed before or after the holidays or placed in the box at the welcome table. All donations will be applied toward membership dues should you join later in the year. (Dues cover the cost of attendance for members and their extended families.)
