We observe both days of Rosh Hashanah. In addition to adult services in the sanctuary, Camp Shana Tovah provides programs and services for children aged 1 through 7th grade.


Observance of the Day of Atonement begins with Kol Nidre. Yom Kippur services include Yiskor and Neilah and the blowing of the Shofar.


Students and members of the congregation decorate our sukkah, and meals are served in it.


Noisy and joyous, this holiday is celebrated dancing to a Klezmer band and marching with the Sefer Torah.
