Coming together to celebrate.
Join us as we observe, honor, and rejoice in spiritual and cultural holidays throughout the year — just as our fore-fathers and ‑mothers have done for hundreds of generations.
Our High Holiday services begin with Selichot and continue through Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Following services on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, the congregation heads to nearby Owen Fish Park for a moving Tashlich ceremony.
Welcome Sukkot with us in our spacious Sukkah where we hold all Sukkot programs (weather permitting). From early childhood through adulthood, everyone can enjoy the many blessings of our Sukkah, and all generations have the opportunity to shake the lulav and etrog. And just a week later, join us as we rejoice over the Torah during a jubilant Simchat Torah service filled with song & dance.
Light the candles with us on Hanukkah to celebrate the season. Then come in costume to our unforgettable Purim service in which we read the entire Megillah and perform the annual Purim schpiel. Join your entire synagogue family for the Second Seder on Pesach when we retell the story of our exodus from Egypt, act out the plagues (mini-marshmallows for number seven!), and share traditional foods and Seder traditions together.
In late spring we celebrate Shavuot— the anniversary of the day God gave the Torah to the entire Israelite nation assembled at Mount Sinai — and get ready to do it all over again.
