Experience  the HIGHEST OF HOLIDAYS at the Adas
It's ironic.  One of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays,  Rosh  Hashana, commemorates an event that is not uniquely Jewish.  On  Rosh  Hashana we mark a universal moment: the birth of Adam and Eve.  Yet, despite the cosmic overtones, the event is very personal.

The Jewish calendar is a cyclical roadmap which recreates energies from our past.  On Passover we are freshly liberated.  On  Rosh  Hashana, we are transported to the first primordial moment in time when Adam and Eve stood in Eden.  We relive how God picked up Adam & infused within him the spirit of life as we are infused with a new sense of vitality as well.   If I had to chose one word to encapsulate  Rosh   Hashana  it would be "rebirth."  So get ready to feel revitalized & happy re-birthday!

Wishing you & your family a sweet and healthy New Year.

Rosh Hashana (2nd Night) September 21st
Experience an authentic, traditional Rosh Hashanah dinner with your Adas family! Featuring all of the special holiday foods & a warm, friendly family atmosphere.

High Holiday Seat Reservations
For the oast several years, our congregation has had open seating for Rosh Hashana and the option for reserved seating for Yom Kippur.   This enabled us to create a more meaningful and intimate Rosh Hashana experience by removing a few rows of unnecessary  seating  at the back of the congregation.  

On Rosh Hashana, we will have "reserved" markers that can be placed on pews for individuals to reserve seats, that day, for their family and friends.

Yom Kippur seats can be reserved for both members and guests for $54 per seat. In order to meet the various requests, we respectfully ask that you review and complete the Reservation Form below: 

High Holiday Honours

Over the centuries, Jews have traditionally valued and cherished High Holiday honours, during services, as a positive omen for the New Year.  If you would like to reserve an Aliyah, or other High Holiday honour, for yourself, a family member, or friend, please contact the Shul office at 905.528.0039 or
