High Holy Days

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur offer us much rich spiritual wisdom. As a community, we begin to prepare for the High Holy Days a month earlier, at the beginning of the month of Elul, with “chesbon ha’nefesh,” reflection and introspection.

This year, of course, is very different from any other year we have experienced, as, due to COVID-19, we are not able to gather as a community for in-person High Holy Day services. As a result, we have adapted our services. Some will be live streamed, some will be on Zoom, and there will be some opportunities to come together outdoors in a safe way.

Our services are spiritual, meaningful and uplifting. We follow a traditional Hebrew service (somewhat abridged this year), and we are very proud that our members lead the morning service, leyn Torah and chant haftarah.

Our Rabbi gives sermons that raise critical issues for us to consider from a Jewish and spiritual lens, and brings poems, reflections, meditations and teachings to help us appreciate the holiness of these days and reflect upon our lives. Our High Holy Day Cantor Joshua Jacobson leads us in Musaf, and on Yom Kippur, Kol Nidre, and the closing service, Neilah.

Please join us online for our warm, welcoming and spiritually uplifting services. There is no cost to join us for High Holy Days.

Non-members may make a suggested donation of $180.

We welcome you on these very special days.
