High Holy Days

Prepare for the High Holy Days The High Holy Days offer us the opportunity to reflect upon and renew the journey of our lives. We are delighted to offer worship and study opportunities designed to meet the needs of the many members of our community. Our worship schedule, and study opportunities will bring added meaning and significance to your High Holy Days experience. Life is all about the choices we make and how we act and behave in the world around us. Judaism asks us to spend the month of Elul (the month before Rosh Hashanah) reflecting on the actions and choices we have made in the past year. Elul also offers us a chance to make concrete changes for the better, to begin to take the actions that will help shape who we will be in the new year. Look for emails and updates on how you can take the “30 Days to a New You Challenge”. May you be written and inscribed for a year of blessing and peace. “

Worship Opportunities

Our service combines the power of tradition with contemporary readings, reflections and music which guide us through the challenges and ultimate rewards of this time of repentance and renewal. This service is open to all. Parents are advised to consider their own child’s ability to behave appropriately during this 2 hour service to assure that everyone’s religious experience is meaningful.

Family Services
are geared towards families with young children (8 and under). This hour long service offers opportunities for children and adults alike to join in both traditional and contemporary song and prayer while sharing in stories and special Torah readings reflective of the mood of the season. No tickets are required for this service. It is open to the entire community.
