L'shanah Tovah U’metukah! We Move Together Toward a Good New Year.

The High Holy Days – A time to open our hearts and minds to the finest within us and one another. A time when we can allow ourselves to be vulnerable. The High Holy Days – Our annual homecoming at Temple Israel. In this place, we find strength, insight, and the wisdom from our tradition. And we know that home is wherever we find ourselves in prayer.

Chadesh yameinu k’kedem — Renew Our Days as of Old
What does it mean to renew our days as of old?

In this beautiful paradox, Judaism recognizes that our past is inextricably linked to our future. When we discover the newness in each day, when we reconnect to what matters most, we access a timeless truth, an eternality bequeathed to us by our ancestors. Through the High Holy Days, we revolve and evolve, returning to our truest selves in order to forge a better future. The paths of t’shuvah are not linear but cyclical, and no matter where we find ourselves, all paths lead toward home.

We look forward to sharing these High Holy Days together. Come inside.

Tickets are required for all High Holy Day services, except for Kol Nidre Creative Experience and the Between Services sessions on Yom Kippur afternoon.
