Celebrate the High Holy Days at Beth El
Autumn is coming, and that means shorter days, leaves changing colors, and the Jewish High Holy Days. For those who may be unaffiliated with a synagogue, or looking to change affiliation, the congregation at Beth El - The Heights Synagogue welcomes you to pray and learn with them.
Beth El is a traditional, egalitarian synagogue, and an independent minyan (quorum required for Jewish communal worship) in Cleveland Heights. It seeks to build a vibrant Jewish community by welcoming all in participatory worship and learning.
The synagogue’s September calendar includes the following:
Kabbalah Shabbat, Friday, Sept. 8, at 6:30 p.m. A vegetarian-friendly dinner will follow the service. Barry Starr will teach “Not Perfect but Awakened: The Liturgy of Rosh HaShanah.”
On Saturday, Sept. 9, enjoy lunch and learn about “Not Perfect but Forgiven: The Liturgy of Yom Kippur" with Barry Starr after morning services.
Rosh HaShanah services will be held on Sept. 21 at 7:15 p.m., Sept. 22 and 23 at 8:30 a.m.; Yom Kippur on Sept. 29 (Kol Nidre) at 6:45 p.m., and Sept. 30 at 8:30 a.m.
