High Holy Days Worship

High Holy Days 2018-5779

The High Holy Days at Temple Shalom are a particularly meaningful period, during which we gather to reflect and renew our spirits. Our services are a rich and beautiful tapestry of prayer and song, incorporating both traditional and modern liturgy and melodies that speak to the intellect and the soul.
Children are welcome to attend our High Holy Day services. We also offer Family Services, which attract multi-generational families and those with young children on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur afternoons. Family services are specially designed to inspire and engage children and those who love them, around the meanings and messages of the High Holy Days.
We also offer babysitting for those who prefer to let our certified teachers care for their little ones while they worship. There is a cost and reservations are required by September 4 to ensure sufficient staffing. Please use this form to register your children.

If you are unable to attend our High Holy Day services, please join us via livestreaming by clicking the Media tab in the menu above.
