The holidays offer us opportunities to come together as a community with prayer and celebration. Festival services often feature lively music and an earlier start time (check the calendar). We offer holiday programming for all members of our community, from tots to adults!

Yizkor (Memorial Services)

Early morning Yizkor servies are held on Sukkot, Passover and Shavuot, providing a moment of quiet reflection and rememberance at the start of the day.
