High Holiday and Sukkot Service Times and Events

The High Holidays are a time for reflection, prayer, wishing friends a Shana Tova, and the start to a brand new year filled with possibilities. Whether you are a regular service davener, a person who comes twice a year, or someone who has not been to services in several years, please join the Temple Shalom family for the start of a Shana Tovah Um'tukah; a happy and healthy New Year.

High Holidays at Temple Shalom include children and family activities through Sukkot and Simchat Torah, free child care, adult learning opportunities (e.g., learn how to blow the shofar), luncheons after both days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur break fast meal.
