Ahavat Olam

A progressive synagogue in Vancouver, BC, Canada

High Holidays

Ahavat Olam is pleased to announce that we will be holding High Holiday services for 5778/2017!

Our services will be congregation led as we are a chavurah rather than a rabbi-led congregation.

Ahavat Olam’s services will be beautiful and profound, reflecting the deep spirituality and talents of the participating community.

We welcome anyone who is interested in contributing to our celebration to visit our Services Participation page for more information on how to get involved.

Ahavat Olam will have services on:

Erev Rosh Hashana – Wednesday, September 20, 5778/2017

The first day of Rosh Hashana – Thursday, September 21, 5778/2017

Erev Yom Kippur – Friday, September 29, 5778/2017

Yom Kippur – Saturday, September 30, 5778/2017

For specific times and services, please visit our our High Holidays Services Schedule page.

All celebrations will take place at the Peretz Centre, 6184 Ash Street, Vancouver, BC BC V5Z 3G9

There is no charge to attend the services, although Ahavat Olam would be grateful for all donations to the community to offset our costs and to support Ahavat Olam progress forward.

In addition to our High Holidays services, Ahavat Olam will be hosting a festive meal after the morning service on the first day of Rosh Hashana – Thursday, September 21, at 1:00 pm – and a congregational Break Fast after Havdalah on Yom Kippur – Saturday, September 30, at 7:39 pm. Please visit our Community Meal page for more information and details.

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.
