Tisha B’Av, the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av, marks the destruction of the first and second Temples, as well as a variety of other
tragedies throughout Jewish history. This special service is marked by somber melodies, the chanting of the Book of Lamentations, and other
liturgical poems. We typically observe Tisha B’Av by taking turns with our fellow Conservative Community Synagogues. In 2020, the observance is hosted by Congregation Beth Ahm, and will be held on Zoom. Click HERE for information and advance registration (required).
The High Holy Days experience at Congregation Shaarey Zedek is, unquestionably, without parallel. This is where our legacy shines brightest.
Our sanctuary of more than 2,000 is filled with members of all ages, families and guests. With our clergy robed in white, and our choir under the direction of our Hazzan in front of the magnificent multi-story stained glass windows surrounding our bimah, we cannot help but feel an elevated sense of spirituality.
Join us for reflection, friendship, remembrance, a re-commitment to acts of loving kindness, and an experience that binds us to one another and God in a powerful and transformative way.
For 2020/5781, our services will be held unconventionally, but our Clergy, Board and professional team have worked consciously and thoughtfully to retain the joyful, meaningful and moving High Holy Days experiences that are authentically CSZ, presented in different formats. There truly is something for everyone, and we look forward to participating with you. Click HERE for information and links.
