Looking forward to the annual reunion of our synagogue community, we welcome you to our High Holy Day celebrations for 2017, beginning the Jewish year 5778.
At Chizuk Amuno Congregation we provide a variety of settings for observing Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.
Thank you for being a vital part of our community. Your presence and participation create a warm and joyous experience for us all.
Anticipating a meaningful season, we look forward to a New Year of goodness and peace!
Please download and view our 2017 High Holy Days Brochure which contains times and information on our various services and events.
Holidays begin at sundown on the evening before the date specified.
Dates in bold are yom tov, so they have similar obligations and restrictions to Shabbat in the sense that normal “work” is forbidden.
