High Holy Days

High Holy Days 2019-5780

High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and re-connection. We welcome you to join us in celebrating and observing these special holy days.

A copy of the High Holy Days booklet with all relevant information was emailed to the congregation on August 1, 2019.  If you did not receive it, you can pick up a copy from the Temple Front Office or call (619) 286-2555 and we can email it to you again.
