High Holiday Schedule
We are currently planning to hold in-person services for the High Holidays for those who are fully vaccinated. Masks will be required. If plans change due to COVID numbers, we will let you know as soon as possible.  

For those who may not be comfortable attending in-person, we are working on a streaming option. More information on the livestream will be provided as it becomes available.

After positive feedback last year, we are pleased to again be offering neighborhood-based Tashlikh services on the first day of Rosh Hashanah. See below for the offerings for this year.
