High Holy Days

 

 

 

 

 As fall approaches, Jews throughout the world prepare for a unique ten-day period of prayer, self-examination, fasting, and repentance. It is time for the Yamim Noraim, the Days of Awe, the High Holy Days: Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. These holidays are preceded by a month of reflection: the Hebrew month of Elul. During this time, morning worship includes special penitential prayers and concludes with the blowing of the shofar as a reminder of the approaching season of atonement. In some communities, this is also a time to visit the graves of loved ones.

High Holy Days

High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and re-connection.  We welcome you to join us in celebrating and observing these special Holy days. We offer a variety of services to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse community. Please see the Schedule of Services for a list of dates, times, and locations of services. 

Come share the spirit and wisdom of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. These Holy Days are a time of prayer, music, reflection and learning. Come and join our congregational family for a spiritually deep High Holy Day experience.

Members of the congregation will automatically receive their High Holy Day tickets for each adult member of your household and dependent children over the age of 18 (Children 17 years old and under do not require a ticket). Members are also welcomed to purchase additional tickets for other relatives and guests at a discount rate.

If you are not a member of the congregation and not yet ready to make that committment, we are pleased to offer two different ways to join us.

The first way is to purchase High Holy Day tickets to join us for all the services listed below.  If you decide to join the congregation shortly after the holidays have ended, we will apply the ticket costs toward your membership dues! Please contact our office office@sbe.ca for details.

The second way is to join us for our complimentary Day 2 Rosh Hashana morning service or the afternoon Yom Kippur Yizkor/Neliah service at 4:30 pm. Please contact the Rabbi rabbi.wise@sbe.ca  for more details.  We look forward to sharing a wonderful High Holy Days together!
