Ahavat Olam

A progressive synagogue in Vancouver, BC, Canada

Rosh ha-Shanah & Yom Kippur 2020 / 5781 – come join us!

Ahavat Olam will hold High Holiday services for 2020 / 5781 as we have since 2004 / 5765. All are welcome to attend. There are no tickets. Services are held at the Vancouver Peretz Centre, 6184 Ash Street, Vancouver.

We are a member-led congregation (chavurah) 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 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, etc. During the High Holiday season, we are happy to receive and coordinate gifts of food and money destined for Project Isaiah, the Jewish Food Bank. 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: info@ahavat-olam.ca.
