Join Us for Worship and Celebration

Experience the power, beauty, and spirituality of our High Holy Days in new and exciting ways while also holding on to the traditions that have been hallmarks of our congregation for almost 150 years.

A Note on our High Holy Day Worship Schedule
Similar to the past two years, the two main sanctuary worship services for each holiday are exactly the same service. We have integrated our powerful traditional music and liturgy with our innovative contemporary worship style. We look forward to praying, singing, and learning together as one community.
 
On Erev Rosh HaShanah, we have decided to hold only one service to better accommodate evening timing.
 
Our Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur Afternoon Family Service is now a combined High Holy Day Family Service on Erev Rosh HaShanah at 4:00pm. Please see the section on Family, Youth and Teen for all of the diverse and age-appropriate High Holy Day offerings this year.

COVID Awareness and the High Holy Days
We are excited to come together in our holy spaces for the High Holy Days this year. We continue to be aware of best practices surrounding public health and safety. As we approach the High Holy Days, here are some guidelines and precautions that we ask you to keep in mind:   

  • We highly encourage everyone who attends in person to be vaccinated and boosted (appropriate to your age group).
  • If you are not vaccinated, we ask that you wear a mask while attending indoor experiences.
  • If you do not feel well on the days of the High Holy Days, we ask that you attend virtually rather than coming in person. All of our main sanctuary worship services and adult learning sessions will be streamed on our website.
