High Holidays

High Holidays

Our inspiring High Holiday services are led by Rabbi Ely Shestack, who also serves as Ba’al Tefillah. Rabbi Shestack is a former member of the Maccabeats, and his davening reflects his instense spirituality and powerful connection to the liturgy.

Our High Holiday davening includes both traditional and modern melodies that encourage active participation in the service. Rabbi Shestack creates audio files of new music prior to Rosh Hashana so that all can feel comfortable and involved in the davening experience.

Please see past Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur drashot delivered by Rabbi Shestack:

Rosh Hashanah:

Harmony Between Judgement and Honey (5783)

Shofar For The Akeidah (5783)

Yom Kippur:

Jewish Peoplehood, Leadership, and Longevity (5782)

Please also learn from the High Holidays Bookmark created by Rabbi Shestak which includes an outline of the “Integrated Torah Lifestyle” Adult Education Initiative that Congregation Ahavat Achim will be orienting our torah education in the shul around.

We welcome both members and non-members to daven with us, but we ask that you reserve your seats in advance. Our policy is never to turn people away for financial reasons. We invite people who need discounted seats to speak in confidence to Rabbi Shestack or the Gabbai.
