L’Shana Tova! The High Holidays at the JCA provide a communal experience with worship opportunities geared toward different sensibilities and ages. Services are facilitated by Rabbi Benjamin Weiner, High Holiday Cantor Diana Brewer, our youth education staff, and talented lay leaders. Please see SERVICES SCHEDULE for dates and times.
We are delighted that young families are an integral part of our community, and we offer many ways to help families feel at home throughout this season. Children are welcome at all the JCA services, and we have services designed specifically for kids and families. Childcare is available for children aged 1-9 years during high demand hours. Please see FAMILY PROGRAMS for more information.
Our open door policy means no tickets or payments are required for anyone attending services, although non-members need to preregister by completing the GUEST REGISTRATION form online or contacting the JCA Office. If you would like to make a donation to the JCA at this time in support of our programs and high holiday services, please use the DONATIONS button or send a check made out to “JCA” with “Open Door” on the memo line.
We appreciate all the volunteers who help with the many tasks required to make our holiday celebrations a success. Many hands make light work and there is real joy and satisfaction in helping the community. For example, signing up for USHERS & GREETERS is a great way to meet other members of the congregation as well as our many guests. Also, members of our community are invited to submit the name(s) of deceased loved ones for inclusion in the Yom Kippur service and YIZKOR BOOKLET.
If you are looking for further information on topics such as, aliyot and honors, Yom Kippur food drive, parking, and much more, you will find what you need to know in our HIGH HOLIDAY GUIDE.
