High Holidays 5781/2020

Our Days of Awe will look different this year from previous years, but one thing remains the same: we are planning a variety of services and events to engage and strengthen our community. One other thing: the spiritual work begins with Elul! Join together for a weekly class, starting with Rosh Chodesh Elul, to help us get into the spirit of teshuvah and renewal for the High Holiday season. Information and schedules coming soon!
