Concluding Services

Neilah and Havdalah: 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. 

Yom Kippur is coming to an end. Be there as we gather outside (weather permitting) for a message of hope and blessing in the New Year. Neilah (the concluding service) and Havdalah (the very brief ritual of separation) will help us bring these Ten Days of Awe to a conclusion. 

As you leave, renew your soul with our traditional challah, pound cake and juice.
