High Holiday Service Volunteers 5780

Our High Holiday services could not have been as successful as they were without the participation of those in our community. We are blessed to have so many members of our congregation who possess these wonderful skills and shared them with us in order to enrich our spiritual experience. We thank and offer a hearty Yasher Koach to all of them.

If you would like to participate in any of these roles next year, please let us know.

Here is our main iinformation page for the High Holidays 5780.
