About Our High Holiday Services

Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur at Beth Sholom is a wonderful way for you to get to know our shul! We have over 1200 adults and youth davening in three different Minyanim. 
 
Traditional Service (Epstein Sanctuary) This service, featuring chazzan Abe Cherrick, will include familiar tunes in a traditional mode accompanied by commentary and explanation by Rabbi Antine and Rabbi Cooper, who will be present for most of the service.
Participatory Service (Abramson Social Hall) This service, led by various lay chazzanim and Rabbi Aaron Frank, will feature ruach (spirit), singing, and dancing. The service will also include introductions and explanations of the various prayers from Rabbi Aaron Frank.
Sephardic Service (Bobrow Chapel) This service, is a Sephardic Edot Mizrach minyan, and will be led by Rabbi Haim Ovadia.
 
All services feature sermons from Beth Sholom Clergy. Additionally, during Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, join us for a two-hour Guided High Holiday Experience​, which will include pieces from the traditional liturgy, meditation, reflection, Shofar blasts, and discussion. Don’t know Hebrew? No fear! The program will balance traditional texts in Hebrew with plenty of explanation and guidance in English and will be accessible and easy to follow.
