L’shana Tovah! Please join us at Congregation Achduth Vesholom for the High Holy Days season to 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. Please review the new schedule carefully because customary dates and times may be different. Visit our calendar for complete details.
Reform services will be led by Rabbi Paula 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 Small.
