Jewish New Year services
Submitted By Martha Garcia
The Jewish year begins each fall with the observance of the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is the official Jewish New Year when those of the Jewish faith, reflect back on the year just passed and look forward to the year ahead. Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the Jewish year, focusing on repentance and atonement before God. The period of time between the start of Rosh Hashanah and conclusion of Yom Kippur is referred to as the ten "Days of Awe."
Temple Beth Torah, a reform synagogue in Fremont, invites those interested in attending High Holy Day services to contact the temple office at (510) 656-7141. More information, including the complete schedule of services, can be found at http://www.bethtorah-fremont.org.
