High Holiday services will be lay-led this year by our members. If you would like to help with services, please contact us. Rosh Hashanah services on Day 1 will be more traditional, with Day 2 being more of an informal time of prayer at the synagogue. A tashlich service will follow on Day 2, which will include time for families with young children. For more information about the High Holiday schedule, please visit our homepage.
We gather for lay-led services once a month, and a family Shabbat potluck dinner once a month.
Details for Shabbat events are sent via our email list- to sign up please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Next board meeting is Monday, October 9th at 7:00 p.m. on zoom. All members are welcome to attend. To request a link, please email email@example.com
