Celebrating Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur

RoshHashanahRosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are collectively known as the Yamim Nora’im (Days of Awe), the holiest days of the year. We welcome the new year with apples and honey, family togetherness, and hope for the days ahead. The sounds of the shofar remind us that forgiveness and change are both possible and necessary.

At Shomrei Torah, the High Holy Days typically bring more than 1,500 people to the synagogue. Members choose from our traditional services or a family service experience. Each of our services is participatory, with members of the congregation leading some prayers, chanting Torah, and accepting many bima honors.

Below you will find links to all the necessary information for these High Holy Days:
