On the first night of the Jewish year, hundreds of Philadelphians will celebrate renewal of life and community in the open air of Rittenhouse Square. We are reaching out to the community for support in continuing this inclusive evening of music and prayer for a fifth year.

Free and open to all, BZBI’s Rosh Hashanah in Rittenhouse Square: RH² is a festival of Jewish song and prayer in the heart of Center City, Philadelphia. For the fifth year, as the eve of the New Year descends, the park will fill with revelers sharing holiday meals on picnic blankets, children and adults dancing to the rousing live music of the Marom Band, led by BZBI’s Rabbi Yosef Goldman. There is nothing like RH² in Philadelphia. It sets a distinct tone of excitement, warmth and joy for the High Holy Days and the New Year.

This holiday event is a major undertaking, and this year we are reaching out to the community for support. Your assistance is essential in providing the tools we need to allow the greatest number of people to enjoy the concert. These donations ensure better sound equipment and a larger band, allowing the music and revelry of the evening to reach the far corners of the park.

We’re looking forward with excitement to the fifth year of RH². As a center for Jewish spiritual and communal life in Center City, BZBI is committed to be being a welcoming home for experiences like RH². In just four years, RH² has found a special place in the heart of many Philadelphians who now make RH² the centerpiece of their family’s yearly holiday celebration. As word spreads, more people have attended RH² each year. We estimate that last year more than 500 people attended some or all of the event.

Be a part of continuing this tradition for a fifth year by helping us with our campaign.
