This decision opens up these special Services to everyone – congregation members, prospective members, family and friends. In particular, the congregation encourages those who are unaffiliated or feel disconnected from the Jewish community to attend and re-establish their connection.
Led by Rabbi Ira Book and supported by Cantor Hannah Caratti, High Holy Day Services will be held at Congregation B’nai Torah’s new home at St. George’s Episcopal Church, located at 301 East 13th Street in Antioch.
