Nevah Shalom, 2900 S.W. Peaceful Lane, Portland: Nevah Shalom's Rosh Hashanah services are ticketed, but the synagogue also is hosting a "Whole Family Second Day Rosh Hashanah Celebration" this Friday at 9:30 a.m.

The festival marks the first day of the 10 days of repentance, where Jewish people repent for their sins of the previous year and are judged for their sins by god. Rosh Hashana begins on Wednesday night, and Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, is marked the following week.

Rosh Hashanah 2017 begins at sundown on September 20 and continues through nightfall till September 22 sunset. Jewish leaders say it's a time for reflection and repentance.
