The High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the most important time on the Jewish calendar. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, a time of spiritual renewal.
It's followed by Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, which is a time to seek forgiveness and make amends.
Yom Kippur services will start with the chanting of the Kol Nidre at 6:15 p.m. on Oct. 3 at Beth Sholom. More information: www.cbstricities.org/hh or 509-947-8723.
