High Holy Days 2019/5780

The Yamim Noraim, High Holy Days, are a time of personal reflection; gazing at the year past and at the year that is yet to be. As we stand again on the threshold of the New Year, we at Temple Oheb Shalom are working diligently to provide our members and guests with meaningful worship experiences. These pages provide resources and information about High Holy Day observance at Temple Oheb Shalom.
