Sukkot

On Erev Sukkot, our festival celebration begins with a brief service in the sukkah, allowing our whole community to enjoy the bounty of the harvest and celebrate God’s role in our many blessings.

On Sukkot morning, our holiday service is also held in the sukkah (weather permitting).

On the Sunday between Sukkot and Simchat Torah, we celebrate the festival with Sukkot on Sunset, a grand barbeque with lots of family entertainment, more decorating in the sukkah, music, and lots of fun for every age and stage. The evening also includes a brief service in the sukkah.

Simchat Torah

On Erev Simchat Torah we sing, dance and celebrate the gift of Torah at a joyous family celebration which begins at 6 pm. We honor students who are beginning their religious education and welcome them into Jewish learning with a Consecration service. In celebration of the annual cycle of Torah, we dance around the sanctuary and social hall with our Torah scrolls to the accompaniment of upbeat music provided by a live band.

In the morning, we read the end of Deuteronomy and begin again with Genesis as the annual reading of Torah begins anew. The service concludes with Yizkor, a service of remembrance for our loved ones.

Chanukah

Our Chanukah observances include a festive musical worship service and a latke supper for the whole congregation.

Purim

On Purim, the joyful Feast of Esther, we read from the Megillah and tell the story of Purim using lighthearted, humorous performances and music.  This purim schpiel is suitable for all ages. Our Purim celebrations also often include games, food and fun for congregants of all ages.

Passover

On Passover, worship services are held on the evening and morning of the first and last days of the week-long festival. On the last day of Passover, the worship service includes Yizkor, a service of remembrance for our loved ones. Our celebration of Passover also features a very popular Second Night Seder to which the entire congregation is invited.

Shavuot

On the evening of Shavuot, we celebrate the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai with a service of Confirmation as our tenth graders make a public affirmation of their commitment to Jewish life. On Shavuot morning, our worship service is led by our clergy and the liturgy includes Yizkor, the memorial service for those we have loved and lost.
