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

This year, our services will be conducted by Rabbi Andrea C. London, Rabbi Amy Memis-Foler, Rabbi Emeritus, Peter Knobel, Cantor Richard Cohn, and Cantorial Soloist, Shawna Rosen. 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 approximately 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 for the Family Services, Youth Programs, the Second Day of Rosh HaShanah, and the Concluding Service on Yom Kippur.
