The High Holy Days at the Temple are open to all and unlike some congregations in larger communities, tickets are not required to attend. The 2017 schedule below details the various services and other events.  The High Holidays are

. . . the snapshot the Jewish people pull out every autumn of the great journey all human beings must make across the world: the journey from Tisha B’Av to Sukkot, from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur, from birth to death and back to renewal again. Seeing yourself in this snapshot will help you chart the course of your own spiritual evolution. Every soul needs to express itself. Every heart needs to crack itself open. Every one of us needs to move from anger to healing, from denial to consciousness, from boredom to renewal. These needs did not arise yesterday. They are among the most ancient of human yearnings, and they are fully expressed in the pageantry and ritual of the Days of Awe, in the great journey we make between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
