High Holy Days

High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and re-connection. We welcome you to join us in celebrating and observing these special Holy Days. We offer a variety of services to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse community. Please see the Schedule of Services for a list of dates and times of services. Members of the congregation will receive High Holy Day member cards for each adult member of your household and dependent children.

If you are not a member of the congregation and not yet ready to make that commitment, Please contact our Executive Director Judy Moseley at 401-331-6070 or 


We look forward to sharing a wonderful High Holy Days together!
