Observance of the High Holidays begins with the evening Selihot and Havdalah service.  This is a beautiful and spiritually moving candle-lit service.

Several days before Rosh Hashanah, we hold a cemetery visitation service at the entrance to the Jewish section of the local cemetery to remember our departed loved ones.

Rosh Hashanah services are held on erev Rosh Hashanah and Rosh Hashanah morning. The TBS choir brings lovely song, prayer and inspiration to High Holiday services.  The morning service is followed by a light luncheon and Taschlich ceremony.  A separate children’s service is held on Rosh Hashanah morning.

Yom Kippur services begin with Kol Nidre and continue the next day with a morning service and afternoon services- Mincha, Yizkor, and Neilah.  There is a separate children’s service on Yom Kippur morning.  At sundown, following the concluding blast of the shofar, Sisterhood provides a delicious Break-the-Fast meal.

Children’s Services

On Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur a special service is held in the main classroom beginning at 11:00 A M.  Teachers, volunteers, and sometimes the Rabbi pop in for a greeting and to add some meaning to the significance of the holiday.  The service is timed so that the children may join the adult congregation for the conclusion of that service.
