Holidays

At Westchester Reform Temple, holidays and festivals comprise the fabric of life and mark the sacred moments in time that bring our community together in observance and celebration. Each holiday prompts us in its unique way to experience the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the season, as well as to engage in the learning, social action, and arts and culture associated with its special moment.
 
The first date specified for each occasion is that of the evening when the occasion begins, since days on the Jewish Calendar begin at sunset.
