What Are the High Holidays?

The two-day holiday of Rosh Hashonah is the head of the Jewish year, the time when G‑d reinvests Himself in creation as we crown Him king of the universe through prayer, shofar blasts, and celebration. A week later, the High Holidays reach their crescendo with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Like angels, we neither eat nor drink for 25 hours. Dressed in white, we pray in the synagogue—united as one people, children of One Father.

Special High Holiday 2021 Info and Options

This year will be unlike any other. Our mission is to be here for you, and provide you with the most meaningful, authentic and uplifting High Holiday experience possible. To achieve this we will be providing a number of High Holiday options, which you may view below.

  • Traditional High Holiday Services: Our cantor will lead us in socially distanced, but spiritually uplifting entire holiday service. There will be limited, socially-distanced seats available, and no walk-ins will be allowed. You must reserve a seat for each service you plan to attend in person. Masks will be required.
  • Holiday Gift & Prayer Book:  We will be offering a taste of the Holidays with a give-away of home made honey cake, apples and honey, plus a beautifully printed Holiday Guide of Prayers and Insights that you will be able to use for your own home-bound Holiday Service.
