Please Join Us
The High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and re-birth. You are welcome to join us in celebrating and observing these special Holy days beginning with the observance of Selichot, Kever Avot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Yizkor services. Please contact the Temple Office for a list of dates and times of these services. 

We hope you will join our congregational family for a spiritually meaningful High Holy Day experience. While all the services affect our members in different ways, services for Yom Kippur and especially Kol Nidre are among the highlights of our High Holy Day Services. The rich melodies and music of the Kol Nidre service are especially meaningful and serve to put each participant in the proper reflective mood.

We look forward to sharing our wonderful High Holy Days together!  L’Shana Tova!
