Holiday Cycle

Whenever we survey our members to find out why they want to belong to a Jewish community like ours, one of the most cited reasons is, “Celebrating the holidays together.” We offer many ways to do that, including services, holiday meals, and get-togethers where we can perform timeless rituals of the season.
