L’shana Tovah! Please join us at Congregation Achduth Vesholom for the High Holy Days as we come together for the first time with two worship traditions!
Our New Year 5780 begins with expanded options at the Temple. We’ll offer Reform and traditional services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Reform services will be led by Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig, Achduth Vesholom’s new spiritual leader. She will be joined by Cantor Yvon F. Shore, Director of Liturgical Arts and Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, with accompaniment by Maestro Robert Nance. The Temple’s Hazemir Choir will sing at evening services and Yizkor.
Traditional worship will be led by Cantor Michael J. Small.
Please join us at the Temple on Erev Rosh Hashanah. Reform and traditional services both begin on Sunday, September 29 at 8 p.m., followed by our annual Rosh Hashanah Reception in the Social Hall.
On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, please join us on Monday, September 30 at:
- 8:30 a.m. – Traditional service
- 10 a.m. – Reform service
- Tashlich together after morning services
On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, please join us on Tuesday, October 1 for a traditional service at 8:30 a.m.
