Friday, September 18, 7:30 pm-Rosh HaShanah and Shabbat Evening Service on Zoom and Facebook.

Rosh HaShanah (literally, “Head of the Year”) is the Jewish New Year, a time of prayer, self-reflection, and t’shuvah. We review our actions during the past year, and we look for ways to improve ourselves, our communities, and our world in the year to come. The holiday marks the beginning of a 10-day period, known as the Yamim Nora-im (“Days of Awe” or “High Holidays”), ushered in by Rosh HaShanah and culminating with Yom Kippur (the “Day of Atonement”).

Saturday, September 19, 10:00 am-Rosh HaShanah and Shabbat Morning Service on Facebook.
