High Holy Days 2017/5778

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. May you be written and inscribed for a year of blessing and peace.

Rabbi Barry M. Lutz, R.J.E.

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. Our Main Service is open to all with a ticket. Parents are advised to consider their own child’s ability to behave appropriately during this 2 hour service to ensure that everyone’s religious experience is meaningful.

Family Services
The 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 one hour service. It is open to the entire community.

TAS Youth Program are for grades K-6.
Children participate in age appropriate service, High Holy Day games, snacks, a craft project, a story/drama activity, and a short age-appropriate service.
