We join together to celebrate our holidays throughout the year, including Rosh Hashanah, a sweet beginning; breaking the fast as a community after the final blast of the shofar on Yom Kippur; gathering in our sukkah for songs and snacks; dancing to a live klezmer band on Simchat Torah; eating latkes and lighting candles together on Hanukkah; greeting Purim with groggers, hamentashen, Megillah reading and a Purim carnival; holding community seders for Pesach and Tu B’Shevat; and learning a bit of Torah together on Shavuot.
