High Holiday Schedule

Fabrangen cordially invites you, your family, and friends to join us for our 2017/5778 High Holiday services. We are proud to continue our tradition of opening our services to the entire community with no tickets or reservations required. Our services for the High Holidays are guided by several principles:

  • a creative mix of traditional and innovative worship
  • egalitarian and participatory services that seek to include everyone in the spiritual experience, regardless of gender, age, religious background, or affiliation
  • member-led services that engage the congregation
  • children’s programming (for 6 and up) and childcare (for 5 and under)
