L’Shana Tova! May we have a sweet, happy, and healthy New Year!

Our community joins together to welcome the Jewish New Year 5872. After a year of challenges and obstacles, we face the new year with excitement, a firm commitment to our communal health, and hearts ready to engage and connect with each other. Even as these High Holidays still fall during a difficult moment of this pandemic, may our voices, prayers, and souls lift us all.

Below is a comprehensive schedule of Temple Beth Am’s High Holy Day offerings for 5872 (2021). To download a printable version of this schedule click here!

All of our services will be live-streamed on YouTube and available to the public so that we can share these sacred moments together. We are not offering reciprocal tickets for in-person worship; however we are happy to welcome movement partners to our live-stream.
