Come Home to Congregation Emeth for the High Holy Days

High Holy Days with Congregation Emeth

As your Jewish home and family in the South Valley, we welcome all to join us as together we celebrate and observe these special Holy days. We offer a variety of programs and services to meet the needs of our diverse community. All High Holy Day services will be conducted online this year. Services will be abbreviated due to the Zoom format. However, we will be having our own programming led by Rabbi Faith Joy Dantowitz with Rabbinic Student Mira Weller participating as the Cantorial soloist. Please see the schedule below for a list of dates and times

Non-members must register in advance in order to receive a passcode to attend the digital services online with the Zoom app. Please RSVP  to our  membership director,, so we can expect and welcome you. We are suggesting that you donate a minimum of $18 per non-member log-in.  This can be paid through our “Donate” button below, or by sending a check to:
