High Holy Days

High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and reconnection.  We welcome you to join us in celebrating and observing these special Holy days.  We offer a variety of services to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse community.

Begin the High Holy Days with Sehlichot. We will prepare for The Days of Awe through thoughtful texts, meditative music, and the changing of our Torah covers to white, a signal that the new year is beginning. This brief and intimate worship experience is a powerful and meaningful way to begin the process of teshuvah, turning from the people we are to the people we want to be. 

Come share the spirit and wisdom of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. These Holy Days are a time of prayer, music, reflection and learning. Come and join our congregational family for a spiritually deep High Holy Day experience.

Members of the congregation will automatically receive their High Holy Day tickets for each member of your household. Members are also welcomed to purchase additional tickets for other relatives and guests at a discount rate. Members in good standing can receive a reciprocal ticket to another URJ congregation for High Holy days services, see Susan LaRue in the office and she will give you a form to complete, or email her at agudasisraelnc@bellsouth.net.

If you are not a member of the congregation and not yet ready to make that commitment, we are pleased to offer two different ways to join us. First, purchase High Holy Day tickets and if you decide to join the congregation shortly after the holidays have ended, we will apply the ticket costs toward your membership dues! Please contact our Membership Director for details. Or join us for our complimentary alternative Kol Nidre service.

We look forward to sharing a wonderful High Holy Days together!
