Our High Holiday Traditions

On Rosh HaShana and Kippur, the sanctuary takes on a special aura of purity and holiness. The Torah scrolls are dressed in white silk cloaks, and the Myer Myers Rimonim grace the Torah scrolls.

It is our custom to make memorial offerings during Kippur services and offerings of thanksgiving on Succot. These offerings are a beautiful way to memorialize or pay tribute to loved ones and help maintain our synagogue.

Rabbi Soloveichik will deliver an enlightening lecture on the themes of teshuba on Shabbat, September 23.

For members and friends who are unable to hear the shofar during services, we will be offering 2 separate outdoor shofar blowing services.

No registration or reservations are required.
