Our Services:  Holidays

Holidays

Holidays are marked with worship and celebration, bringing together our Temple Beth El family.

Rosh HaShanah

Rosh HaShanah (literally, “Head of the Year”) is the Jewish New Year, which marks the beginning of a 10-day period of prayer, self-examination and repentance.

Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, considered the holiest day on the Jewish calendar,  means “Day of Atonement” and refers to the annual Jewish observance of fasting, prayer and repentance.

Simchat Torah

Simchat Torah celebrates the completion of the annual reading of the Torah. As part of the celebration at Temple Beth El, the Torah scrolls are unravelled completely.

Sukkot

Sukkot refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest.

Purim

Purim is celebrated by reading the Scroll of Esther (M’gillat Esther), and with a fun and festive Purim Spiel.

Passover

Pesach, known as Passover in English is a major Jewish spring festival commemorating the Exodus from Egypt over 3,000 years ago.

Chanukah

Chanukah is a joyous eight-day celebration of light during which Jews commemorate the victory of the Maccabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and “rededication” of the Temple in Jerusalem.
