Shabbat & Holidays


Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. It is also the first of the Jewish high holidays, a time of favor and forgiveness, of growth and improvement, and of new beginnings - not only for us, but for family, friends and community.

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays and the second of the Jewish High Holidays.

High Holidays

Shabbat, considered one of the holiest days of the Jewish year, is the weekly day of rest symbolizing the Jewish people's relationship with God.



On Hanukkah, we light a menorah to celebrate the miracle of the Maccabee's victory over their Assyrian oppressors, and to celebrate a single jar of oil lasting for eight nights.


Passover is the most celebrated Jewish holiday throughout the world, commemorating the Israelites' exodus from a life of slavery in Egypt to freedom.
