Yom Kippur Afternoon: Musical Interlude

Music can create a special mood of reflection and introspection so appropriate to the Day of Atonement. Please join us at 2:30 pm for this quiet time in the sanctuary with Rachel Keynton, cello, accompanied by Diane Fisher, piano, and Jeremy Aron-Dine, flute, sharing the music of Jewish composers.

Ordering Tickets and Prayer Books

Adults 35 and under can take advantage of Shir Hadash’s New Song-Young Adult Membership and receive full membership in the synagogue, including High Holy Day tickets, for less than the cost of High Holy Day tickets alone!

Copies of Gates of Repentance are available for sale at the office, 20 Cherry Blossom Lane, Los Gatos, or you can order them from CCAR Press.

Books paid for in advance can be picked up at the temple office before the holiday or will be available at Sacred Heart Church during the hour before the beginning of the evening service. We anticipate the Reform movement having a new prayer book next year.

To order tickets or High Holy Day Prayer Books please call the office at 408-358-1751.
