Holiday Celebrations

Chag Sameach and welcome to B’nai Israel! We are honored to invite you to celebrate the holidays with us.

We provide a comprehensive approach to celebrating each of our holidays in its own unique way. In addition to the full array of traditional services, we offer innovative and joyous youth programming – from the Sukkot Family Brunch in the Sukkah to Matzah Pizza, special youth services with residents of the Landow House to community Sukkah Hops. Our celebrations for Simchat Torah and Purim are particularly energetic and spirited.

Most important, we are committed to creating community for our sacred days. If you are going to be with us and would like to be invited for a holiday meal with a member of the congregation, please contact Rabbi Safra’s office.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
