Holidays and Festivals

The holidays and festivals of the Jewish year follow the path of the seasons:

In the fall, we welcome in the New Year of Rosh HaShanah, seek repentance and forgiveness on Yom Kippur, and celebrate the holidays of Sukkot and Simchat Torah.

In the winter, we remember the victories of Chanukah and Purim as we joyfully celebrate in our own day.

In the spring, we celebrate the freedom of Passover, count the Omer and remember the giving of the Torah on Shavuot.

We hope you will join us at Temple Beth David as we mark the passage of time and the cycles of our seasons together.


The congregation is invited to join Rabbi Karen and Rabbi Micah and family via Zoom for their Passover Seder starting at 5:45 pm on Wednesday, April 8. We will be using the CCAR Baskin Haggadah along with other additions. All ages are welcome. See your email for a link to sign up by April 5.
