Shanah Tovah!

This year will be unlike any other. Our mission is to be here for you, and provide you with the most meaningful, authentic and uplifting High Holiday experience possible. To achieve this we will be providing a number of High Holiday Options, please check below ALL the options that you would like to be part of.

Traditional High Holiday Services: Our Rabbi & Cantor will lead us in a socially distanced, but spiritually uplifting complete Holiday Service (including Shofar Blowing & Torah Reading). There will be limited, socially-distanced seats available in our air conditioned sanctuary, and no walk-ins will be allowed. You must reserve a seat for each Service you plan to attend in person. Masks will be required.

Outdoor Shofar Blowing: At 5:30PM during the second day of Rosh Hashanah we will be providing outdoor Services at a local park that will include a Shofar Blowing, several selected prayers, and short words of inspiration.

Yom Kippur: Will include a limited, social distance service, adhering to all local health guidelines. Again, multiple options are available. We cannot accommodate walk-ins this year.

What Are the High Holidays?
The two-day holiday of Rosh Hashanah is the head of the Jewish year, the time when G‑d reinvests Himself in creation as we crown Him king of the universe through prayer, shofar blasts, and celebration. A week later, the High Holidays reach their crescendo with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Like angels, we neither eat nor drink for 25 hours. Dressed in white, we pray in the synagogue—united as one people, children of One Father.
High Holiday Appeal
Increase your generosity of tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. “Repentance, prayer, and charity take away the severity of the decree”.
