High Holidays

High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer and reconnection. We welcome you to join us in celebrating and observing these special Holy days. We offer a variety of services to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse community. Please see the Schedule of Services for a list of dates, times and locations of services.

Come share the spirit and wisdom of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. These Holy Days are a time of prayer, music, reflection and learning. Come and join our congregational family for a spiritually deep High Holy Day experience.

Tickets for High Holidays services are free for temple members and free to everyone online through our Youtube Channel. For 2022, tickets have been mailed to each member household. Members are also welcome to purchase additional tickets for other relatives and guests at a discount rate by contacting the Temple Office [email protected]. Not yet a member?
