High Holy Days

Rabbi Master

Our HHD brochure AND service schedule are now online! The Temple of Israel invites our Jewish brothers & sisters from the Upstate Jewish community to join us for services for the High Holy Days. Admission is free.  Donations are welcome. For more information, read our High Holy Days brochure.  If you'll be a guest at our services, please RSVP before each holiday to the Temple office during office hours at 864.292.1782. 
 ***On Yom Kippur Day, from 1:30pm - 3:30pm, discussions will be held in the Temple library & Family Life Center only. The sanctuary will remain a quiet place for personal meditation.

Food pantry - this year we're requesting donations of canned beans and jars of peanut butter only. These items can be left in the Temple foyer during the High Holy Days. Please do not bring any other food item. We thank you!

High Holy Days are a time for reflection, introspection, prayer, and reconnection.
