High Holy Days

The High Holy Days, sometimes called the Days of Awe, represent the spiritual and religious crescendo of the Jewish calendar. The festivities begin with the Jewish new year of Rosh Hashanah, literally “head of the year.” They conclude after ten days of reflection on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s High Holy Days 5780 beginning on Sunday evening, September 29!

New Format for Erev Rosh Hashanah!

We are excited to announce that to meet and respond to the needs of our ever evolving membership, there will be one service time of 7:30 pm on Erev Rosh Hashanah for two concurrent services as follows:

  • Sanctuary Worship Service featuring a New Year sermon by Rabbi Berg and music from our wonderful volunteer choir Please contact Cantor Hartman if you wish to join the group.
  • Schwartz-Goldstein Hall Service curated for young professionals and open to all with a laid back approach and music from The Temple Band. 

Tickets

Tickets will be mailed the week of September 9 to all members in good standing who have contributed at least ¾ of their annual commitment. Please bring your ID as our ushers may verify ticket holders to enhance our security protocols. Dependent children between the ages of 18 and 22 will also receive tickets. If you have out of town immediate relatives, please fill out the Visitor Ticket Request form . The form also includes instructions on the Union for Reform Judaism courtesy reciprocal seating system.
