Jewish Holidays

Our community celebrates the holidays in a secular manner emphasizing Jewish history and culture. Ceremonies reflect humanistic values and the belief that we are responsible for determining our own destiny.  Our interactive services are in English and we sing songs in English, Hebrew and Yiddish.  Holiday readings encourage reflection and meditation.  And of course we eat!

Join us to experience truly meaningful holiday traditions!

Most holiday celebrations are held at The First Unitarian Church (Fellowship Hall),
21600 Shaker Blvd, Shaker Hts., OH 44122.

RSVP to Peg Fishman at 440-349-1330 or pegfishman@gmail.com. For more information regarding our guest policy, go to our Membership page.
