HOLIDAYS

Holidays, CBSRZ, Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek

On Jewish holidays, our sanctuary is filled with music, and with people of all ages celebrating together. Many holidays involve a congregational potluck or special Oneg (reception). Our High Holy Days – Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur – are major highlights every year, with beautiful music led by our Cantor and Choir, inspiring teachings from the Rabbi and lay people, and special services and activities for children and young families.

High Holy Day tickets are required for everyone, including members of CBSRZ. If you are a non-member, or a member wishing to bring a guest, please contact the office for tickets.
