holidays

Keeping It Sacred is all about accessible, relevant and empowering experiences. We have now hosted or co-sposored several holy day observances. These include Juneteenth Shabbat, Tikkun Leil Shavuot, a Passover Seder, a complete season of High Holy Day Offerings, and a joyful Hanukkah program.  

"Such a warm feeling of community."

"Rabbi Miller, you are such an upbeat, enthusiastic spirit, and one who is truly devoted to your beliefs. I learned a lot."

"Thank you for this wonderful experience. As always, my heart is full!"

Our next holidays coming up are the High Holy Days- the most sacred time of the year! Please see the image to the right for detailed information of our programming, and please register to receive the zoom link to these LIVE, interactive programs HERE.
