From the weekly holiday of Shabbat to the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Jewish year is punctuated by holidays. Many are celebrated communally, while others include elements that can be fulfilled at home.

Since the Jewish calendar follows the lunar (moon) cycle, holidays fall on different dates each year – with some adjustments to ensure they are celebrated in the correct season.

At Temple Israel, we follow the customs of Reform Jews throughout North America. Our holiday celebrations are meaningful and creative. In addition to our holiday services, we often host special services and events designed for young families and our Religious School students.

You can download a printable Jewish holiday calendar here. All Jewish holidays begin at sunset, so the holiday extends from sunset on the noted date until dusk on the next.

Please see our Calendar for the dates and times of upcoming Holiday Services and Special Events at Temple Israel.
