High Holy Days 2020 | 5781

Watch these Rosh Hashanah greetings from your fellow congregants!

This is the time of year when we hear the call of the shofar and celebrate the start of a new year. Our spirits are lifted as we are called together with friends, family and community members from all over the world for a time of reflection and renewal.

Youth Programs

The Youth Education team has been hard at work cooking up all sorts of great programming to help our younger members participate in the holiday learning and doing. Check out this wealth of great programming for kids and teens alike.

Rosh Hashanah: September 18-19

Though we may be celebrating virtually this year, Beth Am offers opportunities for us to come together in preparation for the New Year.

Yom Kippur: September 27-28

 Beth Am provides opportunities for us to come together (virtually) to communal repentance for sins committed over the course of the previous year.

Holidays Continue: October 2-10

Sukkot, the most joyous of Jewish holidays, offers us an opportunity to connect with the natural world and give thanks for the autumn harvest. On Shemini Atzeret we recite yizkor (memorial) prayers in remembrance of our loved ones. And on Simchat Torah, Jews around the world complete the reading of the Torah and begin anew with the first words of Genesis. Celebrate (virtually) with Beth Am.
