Everything you need to know about the High Holy Days 2020

High Holy Days Greetings from Rabbi Cohen

Our High Holy Days have always constituted a sanctified, separate period for deeply personal reflection and accounting, as well as a time for gathering and asserting our faith in community and engagement.

As the year 5780 comes to a close, we are offered a unique opportunity to pray for and commit to a better year to come and to assert the value and inspiration we find in community. This is our opportunity to participate, to call in, log on, stream, volunteer, reach out to friends, and to launch 5781 – a year of healing, regeneration, growth, and strength.

Prayer Book Lending Library

We provided High Holy Day prayer books for loan in early September. Book return will be in Beachwood, October 6 & 7; 9:00 to 11:00 AM • 1:00 to 3:00 PM • 5:00 to 7:00 PM
