Begin the Jewish New Year 5778 with us during our Erev Rosh Hashanah service on Wednesday, September 20 at 8 p.m., led by Rabbi Lenny Sarko with musician Dr. Gary Helfin.
Our annual Rosh Hashanah Reception follows the service and is a wonderful opportunity to greet old friends and make new ones!
High Holy Days Food Drive: On Rosh Hashanah, please pick up paper shopping bags at the Temple. Fill them with non-perishable food items for local families to return on Yom Kippur. Please consider bringing in at least one bag of food for each member of your family.
