Shalom! Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are fast approaching. Rabbi Alanna Sklover will be leading our High Holy day services this year.   Our extraordinary teachers and parents are planning our children and teen programming. The teen and family services that have been so well received in the past, will of course continue this year. We are very excited to continue this enhancement to our high holiday observance.

Other "extras" will include the adult study havurah's engaging discussion series the mornings of Rosh Hashanah (first day only) and Yom Kippur, tashlich following Rosh Hashanah second day services, meditation and a Healing service as part of Yom Kippur afternoon, and of course, spiritually fulfilling services in the main sanctuary. For those who enjoyed it last year, we will again have a quiet space , please read about it by clicking on the attachment below.
