Festivals

"V'samakhta b'chagekha ..."  ("And in your festive seasons you shall rejoice!")

Congregation Beth El is pleased to offer a full complement of holiday services throughout the year, including the High Holidays, Sukkot and its associated holidays, Chanukah, Purim, Pesach (Passover), Shavuot, Tisha b'Av and the holidays associated with Israel's establishment. 

We are one of the USCJ-affiliated synagogues that has adopted the recommendation of the Rabbinical Assembly's Committee on Law and Standards and is now observing in accordance with the Israeli holiday calendar (single-day of chag except in the case of Rosh Hashanah).   This means that our recitation of the Yizkor memorial prayers is often one day earlier than indicated on printed calendars.  To ensure that you are in attendance for the recitation of Yizkor, please confirm service dates on the Beth El calendar.
