PORTSMOUTH — Temple Israel, the historic synagogue in downtown Portsmouth,  is preparing to celebrate the upcoming High Holidays with prayer, song, and community.

Rabba Kaya Stern-Kauffman and cantorial soloist Kochava Munro will lead the congregation in the traditional liturgy using melodies new and old. On the holidays, the temple community invites in all who wish to welcome the Jewish New Year, including visitors, students, and members of the military. Pre-registration is required to access the holiday services, whether attending in person or virtually, over Zoom.

The holiday begins at sundown on Sunday, Sept. 25, with Erev Rosh Hashanah services  and continues the next morning at 9 a.m. with a full Rosh Hashanah service, including sounding of the shofar (ram’s horn) to herald the new year.

A Tashlich service with shofar blowing will also be held Monday afternoon at Prescott Park around 1 p.m. On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Tuesday, Sept. 27, services will again commence at 9 a.m. at Temple Israel.
