JOURNEY TO HIGH HOLY DAYS

 


This period leading up to the High Holy Days is an opportunity to reflect on where we have been, and where we hope to go from here. This year we are more aware than ever of our connection to all people and our own fragility. Join us as we explore Jewish values and self-renewal, and together prepare for the new year.
