The Days of Awe (Yamim Noraim) give us a chance to come together as a community, reflect on the year that has just ended, bring hope for the year that’s beginning, and express our gratitude for the goodness in our lives. It is also a time of enjoying family and your temple community. Please join us in the many ways we celebrate the holy days at Temple Judea.
Designed for families with children of all ages. We use the traditional machzor/prayer book, but we incorporate a song leader with guitar for a high energy experience. The service includes the choir and a rabbi’s sermon. IF YOU SELECT "DOWNSTAIRS," YOU NOW HAVE THE FLEXIBILITY TO ATTEND EITHER THE EARLY OR THE LATE SERVICE. In other words, the Downstairs ticket is good for any Downstairs service.
Goor Sanctuary - Early or Late
Designed for adults and children 4th grade and above. These services combine the warmth of our community with the majesty of the holy days. We use the traditional machzor/prayer book; service includes the choir and a rabbi’s sermon.
Not a member but want to join us? We'd love to have you! Tickets to the Downstairs Sanctuary are for sale to non-members at $300 per person. Please call the temple office or click here.
Rosh Hashanah Day 2
The entire community is invited to join us on the second day of Rosh Hashanah. This has become a favorite service for many because our entire clergy is together in one place. The service is a warm, relaxing and inviting community experience. The service is followed by Taschlich at Lake Balboa.
Yom Kippur Afternoon
This educational program offers a chance to further reflect on the meaning of the day. It will be followed by the Mincha (afternoon) service.
Yizkor and Neilah Services
We close High Holy Days with Yizkor, the memorial service, and then Neilah, the concluding service, with the final Shofar blast. This service is available for all ticket holders and takes place downstairs only, so that, as one community and one clergy team, we close the Holy Days together.
There is even more to the High Holy Days
