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.Members of the congregation will automatically receive their High Holy Day tickets for each adult member of your household and dependent children over the age of 18 (Children 17 years old and under do not require a ticket).  Members are also welcomed to purchase additional tickets for other relatives and guests at a discount rate.

If you are not a member of the congregation, and not yet ready to make that commitment, we welcome you to join us for our family service on Rosh Hashanah or any time on Yom Kippur afternoon.
