Shabbat shalom and l’shana tovah tikutevu! Happy 5782 — and let’s all pray for a better year. We have several places to find information on High Holiday services across the community. There is an image slider on the home page with each synagogue’s logo and link to their high holiday information, there’s our High Holidays page, and there’s also the Boulder JCC’s High Holiday page.
We’ve also included our Rosh Hashanah video playlist below as well.
Have a great long weekend, and due to the Labor Day holiday, we will be back next Wednesday night. Stay cool, stay safe, stay healthy!
