As the fall Jewish holiday season approaches, Temple Shalom of Milton invites interested individuals and families in the surrounding area to join us in observing and celebrating the various holidays.
High Holiday services begin with Erev Rosh Hashanah on September 28 under the direction of spiritual leader Rabbi Fred Benjamin and Cantor Saralee Shrell-Fox. There will be separate children’s services, as well as a Community-wide Family Service open to all on September 30 at 10:30 a.m.
Services for other holidays will follow during October, including special family-oriented holiday events, such as eating in the Sukkah, parading with the Torah scrolls on Simchat Torah, and the tradition of Tashlich, the symbolic casting away of sins on Rosh Hashanah.
All services and activities at Temple Shalom are open to the entire Jewish community. Services this year will be held at the Great Hall Sanctuary, 495 Canton Avenue ().
