  • Talking about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

    The Jewish High Holidays begin with Rosh Hashanah, the New Year, and end ten days later with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The new year is a joyous time filled with family, friends, and food, but it is also an opportunity to reflect on our actions of the past year, and to consider ways to improve in the next.

  • Counting the Omer with Children

    The counting of the omer is the forty-nine-day period between the Jewish holidays of Passover and Shavuot. Each day is traditionally counted out loud during synagogue services. On the 33rd day of counting, the holiday of Lag B'Omer is celebrated.
