L’shana Tovah! Please join us at Congregation Achduth Vesholom for an exciting and meaningful High Holy Days season as we welcome a new rabbi, guest cantors, and celebrate for the first time with two worship traditions!
The New Year 5780 will start with an expanded service schedule that includes Reform and traditional options on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Selichot, Tashlich, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah will be celebrated jointly. Visit our calendar for complete details.
Reform services will be led by Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig, Achduth Vesholom’s new spiritual leader for the coming year. She will be joined by Cantor Yvon F. Shore, Director of Liturgical Arts and Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, with accompaniment by Maestro Robert Nance. The Temple’s Hazemir Choir will sing at evening services and Yizkor.
Traditional worship will be led by Cantor Michael C. Small, our guest spiritual leader from Chicago. An attorney, Cantor Small is an active member and shaliach tzibur at North Suburban Synagogue Beth El in Highland Park, IL.
Erev Rosh Hashanah begins on Sunday evening, September 29.
