SYNAGOGUE SERVICE SCHEDULE

 

September 11, 2020



The following synagogues provided information about their High Holiday services to the Heritage by press time. For information about services at other local synagogues, contact the individual congregations. This year due to COVID-19, services during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur will be completely different from those in years past. One of the basic tenets of Judaism is Pikuach Nefesh (the principle in Jewish law that the preservation of human life overrides virtually any other religious rule). Most synagogues will be hosting a choice: attendance in person (physical distancing and mask wearing area a must) or via Livestream or Zoom. For tickets or information, contact the individual synagogue.
