Rosh Hashanah

Friday, September 22, 2017
The Jewish New Year celebrates the opportunity for us to restart. From our traditional service in the main sanctuary to our more intimate, interactive study service, Rosh Hashanah at WJC is full of uplifting singing, inspiring Torah, and of course, apples and honey. We also encourage young families to join our famed Family Service–geared toward youth aged 4-10 and their parents! For complete details, click here.


Yom Kippur

Saturday, September 30, 2017
25 hours of introspection and self-work that will help get your Jewish year started off right. We feature multiple services through the day, culminating with a rousing, communal wide, final service where every family can spend some private, quiet moments in front of our ark.
