Week of Events
Once a year, we invite our entire community to join together at our cemetery for a custom known as kever avot (the graves of our fathers and mothers). We visit the graves of our parents and close relatives and pray together for the strength to live life in their absence.
On the eve of Yom Kippur, we gather for a solemn and sacred service that calls us to reflect and repent. We hear the ancient melody of Kol Nidre chanted, stirring us to begin the day long process of atonement and forgiveness. View our Live Stream at jcoh.org/live
Immerse yourself in the experience of repentance on this solemn morning. The liturgy, the music, the Torah reading, and the Haftara reading, all call us to consider how we might find our way back to the moral and ethical paths from which we have strayed. View our Live Stream at jcoh.org/live
A short intimate service imbued with poetry and song to help us heal from emotional and physical wounds from the past year.
Fill the time between services with an immersion into study of Jewish texts that we read on Yom Kippur. View our Live Stream at jcoh.org/live
Join us for a service for the whole family. Bring your kids of all ages to join for singing, stories, and great holiday fun.
The Yizkor (Memorial) Service is a time to open the doors of the past and to revisit the memories of our loved ones who are no longer with us. View our Live Stream at jcoh.org/live
Neilah means “the closing,” and the service comes as Yom Kippur itself comes to a close. The evening concludes with the final sounding of the shofar. View our Live Stream at jcoh.org/live
