High Holy Days

REVISED – High Holy Days Fall Festival Schedule

Friends,

Emergencies require… flexibility.
For years Reform synagogues have debated whether to observe the Second Day of Rosh Hashanah. There are reasons on both sides.
This year, for us, Mother Nature or God or whatever you want to call it… has given a definitive answer to that debate.
We are moving our entire communal Rosh Hashanah back one day…to what is traditionally considered the Second Day of the holiday.

Please observe Wednesday night and Thursday morning in a safe place, with family and friends as best you can. We will come together, God willing, on Thursday afternoon, at 4pm (one hour earlier than our already revised schedule had envisioned.)

Thank you all, stay safe, and much, much love,
Rabbi Michael L. Feshbach
