Jewish Holidays

Jewish Holidays Louisville KYCelebrating the Jewish Holidays:  Each year as fall approaches, Jews in Louisville and throughout the world prepare for a unique ten-day period of prayer, self-examination, fasting, and repentance. It is time for the Yamim Noraim, the Days of Awe, the High Holy Days: Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. These Jewish holidays are preceded by a month of reflection: the Hebrew month of Elul. During this time, morning worship includes special penitential prayers and concludes with the blowing of the shofar as a reminder of the approaching season of atonement. In some communities, this is also a time to visit the graves of loved ones.

Jewish holidays continue to be celebrated and honored throughout the year. Learn more about how Temple Shalom celebrates the different Jewish holidays in Louisville:
