High Holiday and Festival Holiday Information
The High Holy Days are a powerful time in our Jewish calendar set aside for spiritual renewal. We enter this period on the Shabbat prior to Rosh Hashanah with Selichot meaning forgiveness. It refers to the solemn penitential prayers recited by prior to the onset of the High Holy Days. We traditionally gather together for study and then for services.
The ten-day period, the Days of Awe, begins with Rosh Hashanah (Literally, “Head of the year”) and culminates on Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement). Our spirit during these days is marked by introspection, prayer, and repentance. It is a time of remembering mingled with a time to look ahead to the new year. It is also a time to be together as a community.
If you are not a current Beth El member, we invite you to join our NSS Beth El Family for a spiritually deep High Holiday experience. Find out more about becoming a member here. Let the year begin with all its blessings.
