High Holy Days 2017

Rabbi Master

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. Please view our schedule below.  If you'll be a guest at our services, please RSVP by September 15 to Pat Cohen at (864) 757-8989.

 ***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 chicken, canned corn and canned pasta 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.
