High Holy Day services at Congregation Beth Israel Judea are warm & participatory, blending traditional prayer with contemporary music. Men and women participate equally in services. Our Rabbi and Cantorial Soloist bring warmth and harmony to our services, together with our members who participate as readers or in our volunteer Nashira Choir.

For families with children, we offer an interactive Family Service on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings, with music and stories. This service is completely free of charge and open to the public.

We also provide child care and programmed holiday activities during the Adult service, at a nominal fee. Pre-registration is required.
