ROSH HASHANAH High Holy Days 2023 | 5784: September 15-16

Whether you celebrate with us virtually or in person, Beth Am offers opportunities for us to come together in the New Year. Rosh Hashanah is an opportunity to celebrate our creation, but also a time of accounting and judgment for our actions. On Rosh Hashanah, we review choices we've made over the past year, our actions and our intentions, as we attempt to honestly evaluate ourselves.
