Due to weather concerns, our 9:30 Early Childhood Service and our 3:00pm Family Service will be held indoors.
Both services will be available on the High Holy Days Livestream page.

All are welcome – Join us!

As we welcome in the new year, we want to share our plans with you for a rich experience both online and in-person.

Watch this video for a sneak preview!

While this year has been like no other, we are excited to share our High Holy Days celebration with our congregation and beyond, regardless of where you live. We welcome visitors from our surrounding towns, and family and friends from far and wide.

Information and documents to make your High Holy Days
more meaningful as we pray and celebrate together:

Here you will find some documents that should be read in advance of Rosh Hashanah, such as the overview of the service schedule and the ways to make your home into a mikdash me'at - a holy space - from which to pray with us this year.

There are also some handouts that accompany specific events, such as the 'Food for Thought' ritual for Erev Rosh Hashanah or the Yizkor book for our Yom Kippur Yizkor Service.

Finally, there are handouts with information on how you can make our 31st WAFTY Food Drive a success this year, and a handout to take with you for a DIY Tashlich ceremony (with accompanying recording).

All the information is available at:

  • For our guests: Register in advance so we can send you all the important information and links that you will need to fully participate with us.
  • We appreciate your decision to join our community during the High Holy Days this year. Your support helps us to continue to be a vibrant hub of Jewish life, learning, and culture. While there is no cost to attend, we invite you to make a gift as you are able; however, we will not deny anyone the opportunity to join us and celebrate with us.

  • For our congregants: You will automatically receive everything that you need to participate fully in our reimagined High Holy Days. Please invite your friends and family to join you as guests. No additional action is needed by you at this time, but do watch for email announcements in the coming weeks.
  • We are creating special community experiences that require advance planning to make our upcoming High Holy Days even more meaningful. Congregants will also have early access to our outdoor family experiences. Advance sign up is required so we can prepare accordingly and create safe, physically-distanced gatherings.
