Holiday Services at Temple Aliyah
Evening and morning services are held for the High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur), the three festival holidays (Passover, Sukkot, Shavuot), Shemini Atzerit and Simchat Torah. Check the calendar. For more information about the High Holiday services, download the High Holiday and Sukkot Booklet for 2012/5773.
For Purim we have a festive Megillah (Esther) reading in both the evening and the morning services. We also read Eicha (Lamentations) and Kinot (dirges) on the evening of Tisha B’Av, Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) on Sukkot, Ruth on Shavuot, and Shir Ha-shirim (Song of Songs) on Passover.
Congregants are encouraged to learn to chant all of these special megillot. Instructions and MP3 recordings are available for all who are interested. Check out the tutorials or contact Cantor Gastón for more information.
Children's services are also offered for selected holidays. Check the calendar.
