Congregation Beth Sholom holds traditional services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Tickets for synagogue members are discounted, and additional tickets can be purchased for out-of-town visitors. Babysitting and children’s activities are available during services.
We celebrate all other holidays to the fullest, in the traditional Jewish spirit. The synagogue constructs a communal sukkah and orders lulavim and etrogim for members. On all holidays, adult and children’s activities are organized as part of the community-wide celebrations. A Tu B’Shevat seder is held regularly for synagogue families, who gather to enjoy a service and vegetarian meal in celebration of the beginning of spring in Israel. On Purim, a party for children and adults includes Megillah reading by members, costumes, and entertainment for children and adults. Our members organize a special Mishloah Manot effort within the synagogue, which enables families to honor each other while helping to raise funds for the synagogue. Other observances include Tikkun Leil Shavuot, Simhat Torah, Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day), Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israel Independence Day), and Selihot prior to the High Holidays, to name a few. Yizkor services are held on the final mornings of Pesah, Shavuot, Sukkot, and on Yom Kippur.
