High Holidays

For 2017 / 5778:

Rosh Hashanna begins on Wednesday night September 20th and ends on Friday night September 22nd. Yom Kippur begins Friday night September 29th and ends Saturday night, September 30th. Please have all reservations forms returned to the office before September 4, 2017.

High Holidays at OLS are not to be missed. We host three beautiful services: main sanctuary, Sephardic and hashkama. Our Cantor in the main sanctuary, Dr Shmuel Arnon, uplifts us with heartfelt prayer. Dr Arnon spends the year working as a neonatologist in Israel and the merit of his holy work stands before God’s throne on these days of judgment and mercy. During the day time we host an additional hashkama service. A vibrant Sephardic service meets for Rosh HaShanna and Yom Kippur. This year we have the well known Rabbi Yedidya Elul will be joining us to lead our OLS / Shuva Yisrael Sephardic Services in the JCC. In addition this year Chazan Chaim Motzen will be leading our OLS Hashkama Early Service which will also be held at the JCC.

Visitors are urged to arrange tickets and a seat in advance as space in the Sanctuary fills quickly.
