holidays and holy days

The holidays of the Jewish calendar are meant to be observed and celebrated as part of a community. Most of our holiday services are conducted from creative service booklets which makes them particularly tailored to the mood and themes of the holiday.

  • The service schedule includes most of the holiday evening services and all the morning services.
  • Some of our High Holiday services require membership and tickets, but many do not. Our Selichot evening includes a service, a dessert reception and a movie and discussion.
  • At Rosh Hashanah we do Tashlich along with a picnic dinner at the beach.
  • Yom Kippur afternoon includes a Healing Service, and Ne’ilah concludes with school students in a candlelight processional followed by a Break Fast open to the community.
  • At Simchat Torah we also consecrate students who are beginning their journey of lifelong Jewish learning.
  • Yizkor is included during the services on Yom Kippur, Simchat Torah/Shemini Atzeret, Passover and Shavuot.
  • Many evening holiday services are followed by a congregational dinner. Children’s activities are offered towards the end of the meal.
  • We hold a community-wide seder on the first night of Passover that is open to the community.

Please check the calendar or contact the  office at (941) 924-1802 to confirm the schedule of services for a specific holiday.
