High Holy Days

During Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the Eitz Chayim community shares meals, stories, and collective confessions.  We mourn together and we hear the call of the shofar together.

Rabbi Stern is accompanied by our cantorial soloist Debby Gelber.  With the Rabbi’s words, the Cantor’s voice, and the personal prayers of individual community members, we take our annual spiritual journey of the High Holy Day season, the Yamim Noraim – the Days of Awe.

We encourage your entire family to join in celebrating the High Holy Days at Eitz Chayim. Rabbi Stern leads wonderful children’s services on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur.  In addition, childcare and children’s educational activities are available for 1st day Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur daytime services.
