Beth Emet offers a variety of worship options for the Yamim Noraim (High Holidays). From Traditonal Reform and Morning Chavurah Services, to special worship and learning opportunites for adults, youth, and families with young children, the entire community can find a service to suit thier holiday needs. The High Holidays begin with S'lichot and continue through Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah. 

Our services are conducted by Rabbi Andrea C. London and Cantor Susan Lewis Friedman. Rabbi Emeritus, Peter Knobel, will be offering a sermon on Rosh HaShanah and an adult study on Yom Kippur. Members of the greater community are welcome to worship alongside Beth Emet congregants. It is important that we know one another when we come to worship together; to encourage our community to learn each others name, in lieu of tickets we use name badges. Badge inserts will be sent to members approzimately two weeks prior to the start of Rosh HaShanah and lanyards will be available when you come for services. 

Name badges are required for all High Holiday Services except fof the Family Services, Youth Programs, the Second Day of Rosh HaShanah, and the Concluding Service on Yom Kippur.
