JUF Young Families High Holiday Services

Shanah Tovah! Happy New Year!

The Jewish High Holidays begin with Rosh Hashanah, the New Year, and end ten days later with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The new year is a joyous time filled with family, friends, and food, but it is also an opportunity to reflect on our actions of the past year, and to consider ways to improve the next. While this year make look very different than years past, we are here to help you find the best option for your family to celebrate. 

  • Rosh Hashanah
    Friday-Saturday, September 18-20 (begins at sundown on 9/18)
  • Yom Kippur
    Monday, September 28 (begins at sundown on 9/27)
