High Holy Day Information

Rosh Hashanah 2023 begins at sundown on Friday, Sept. 15, and ends after nightfall on Sunday, September 17. 

 Yom Kippur 2023 begins at sundown Sunday, September 24 and ends Monday, September 25. 

Rosh Hashanah (literally means, “Head of the Year”) is the Jewish New Year, a time of prayer, and self-reflection. We review our actions during the past year, and we look for ways to improve ourselves, our communities, and our world in the year to come. The holiday marks the beginning of a 10-day period, known as the Days of Awe or High Holidays, ushered in by Rosh Hashanah and culminating with Yom Kippur (the “Day of Atonement”).  

 ******************************************************************* 

Our Policy on Attending High Holy Day Services: 

Children under the age of 27 are provided with tickets as they are included in your membership. Children under the age of five do not require a ticket. Children over the age of 27, as well as their spouses, will need to buy tickets for $75.  

 Guest tickets are available for purchase for your family members.  

Tickets will be sold only to those members in ‘good standing.’ Temple policy does not allow guest tickets to be bought for friends who are not affiliated and live within the area.   

We will continue to provide tickets at no charge if your guests are members of another congregation. It is requested that a letter be provided from the reciprocal Temple on their letterhead affirming your guest’s membership. 

On Rosh Hashanah, it is written. On Yom Kippur, it is sealed. May it be written that you have a new year that brings fulfillment, happiness, peace, and prosperity — all of life’s sweetest things! Happy New Year!
