We are a vibrant and welcoming Reform Jewish congregation. We provide a rich spectrum of opportunities for our members to express their Judaism through worship, education, music, community service, and social events.
High Holidays 5783
We are returning to hybrid holy day services this year. You may choose to join us in person or livestream.
So that we may plan for seating, we are asking that you let us know in advance whether you plan to attend in person, and if so, which services. We may need to plan to have overflow seating in the social hall where we will be showing the service on a big screen, and we will also be live-streaming if you plan to attend from home.
For exact dates and times, please refer to the weekly announcements or contact us by email.
Friday Shabbat Services
We have returned to in-person Shabbat Services in our Sanctuary with limited capacity. To prevent crowding, RSVPs are required. Please fill out the form linked below.
SHABBAT RSVP FORM
Masks are required for all attendees, and those age 5 and up must be vaccinated. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us.
