Ahavat Olam

A progressive synagogue in Vancouver, BC, Canada

Rosh ha-Shanah & Yom Kippur 2019 / 5780 – come join us!

Ahavat Olam will be holding High Holiday services for 2019 / 5780.  As in past years, all are welcome to attend.

We are happy to welcome Rabbi Dina-Hasida Mercy who will lead Rosh HaShanah morning services this year. We are a member-led congregation (chavura) and depend on the participation of our members and others who wish to be part of the services or help in some way. A number of us are organizing this and we would welcome your ideas and involvement.

Here are some possible ways to get involved: leading in prayers, reading a short story or poem, singing a song or helping set up, cleaning up, bringing flowers, food organization, security, etc. If you would like to participate, but are not sure how, all you have to do is send us an email and one of us will get back to you.
