High Holidays 5780

Shalom!

The High Holidays are a time for personal and communal reflection. Each year, the Shofar calls us to our best selves. At Shearith Israel, our services are traditional, filled with high energy and surprises to keep our spirits from slipping into boredom or complacency.  We create a joyous and celebratory mood to lift our souls higher and higher to the heavens. From that high perspective, we see ourselves with clarity, and we strive toward the best possible future as a community.
