The Jewish calendar is filled with holidays and festivals that commemorate important milestones in our history as well as nature’s cycle in the Holy Land. Our observance of these ranges from the solemn (Yom Kippur) to the joyous (Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Chanukah, Tu B’Shevat, Passover and Shavuot) to the downright silly (Purim). We also commemorate more recent events in our people’s history, such as Yom HaShoah. For each of these annual occasions, we have strived to create a service appropriate to the occasion.
Sukkot—service in our own sukkah.
Tu B’Shevat—a congregational seder designed around fruit and nuts
Shavuot—service, communal dinner, traditional study (Tikkun Leil Shavuot)
