L’shana Tovah! Please join us at Congregation Achduth Vesholom when we celebrate the High Holy Days 5781 online as a community. As we begin a year like no other, we’ll share Rosh Hashanah virtually to maintain the safety of our extended Temple family while also embracing the opportunity to experience the holidays in new and significant ways.
We again this year will offer traditional and Reform services.
On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, our schedule is:
- Traditional services
- 9 a.m. - Shacharit
- 10 a.m. Torah service and D’var
- 11 a.m. Musaf
- All Congregation
- 2 p.m. Drive-in Shofar and Tashlich services at the Temple

for information about accessing online services.

Rabbi Meir Bargeron will lead Reform worship with Cantor Yvon F. Shore and Maestro Robert Nance. Cantor Shore, Director of Liturgical Arts and Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, also joined us last year for the High Holy Days.
Leading our traditional services is Michael Small, who previously served as the guest spiritual leader for the holidays at Congregation B’nai Jacob. An attorney, he is an active synagogue member at North Suburban Synagogue Beth El in Highland Park, IL, where he frequently davens as a shaliach tzibur (prayer leader) and gives lay sermons.
