Temple Beth Emet: High Holy Days

Jewish year 5772 begins on Thursday, September 29th - and, since Thursday begins at sundown Wednesday, that means Erev Rosh Hashanah services for Temple Beth Emet will be held at St Jude's Wednesday night at 8 p.m. and Rosh Hashanah services Thursday morning at 10 a.m.

St Jude's parishioners are encouraged to come and assist in the flashlight brigade on Wednesday night, walking our Jewish brothers and sisters to and from their cars, as we borrow the use of additional local parking lots.

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is October 8th this year, so Friday night, October 7th, is Erev Yom Kippur at 8 p.m. and Yom Kippur services at 10 a.m. Saturday (Yom Kippur with shofar and digeridoo).

We will also provide a flashlight brigade on Friday evening for Yom Kippur.
