Festivals

The three main festivals in Jewish tradition are Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot. Our community celebrations for these holidays vary from year, although some aspects are consistent: every holiday includes joyful connections and traditions. 

Passover, March 27-April 3, 2021 (through April 4 for those who celebrate 8 days)

Our Temple offers a pre-recorded seder using the CCAR haggadah Mishkan HaSeder. Whether you use the kindle book, follow along page-by-page or fast forward and only use certain sections, we hope this recording will help you connect with the Temple for your home seder.
