High Holy Days 5781

The High Holy Days are an incredibly important and beautiful part of the Jewish year. A time of personal and communal introspection and prayer, we come together as a community to observe these most holy of days.

This year we will be streaming live from Temple Sholom directly to your homes. We are working closely with a professional production team to make sure that this experience is great and unlike any you have seen before. Embrace the High Holy Days this year with your friends, family, and community in a safe, beautiful, and intimate way.
