The Holidays at Temple Judea are truly community events. We take great pride in the planning of our services and the many special celebrations on the Jewish calendar. We invite every member to join us as often as possible.
Begin the High Holidays with Selichot. We hold a special 30 minute service providing a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with our clergy team.
The High Holy Days
These are a time of great community at Temple Judea. Led by our respected clergy team, Temple Judea offers a variety of services for members and guests.
Tickets to the main HHD services are available to member families or can be purchased by contacting the office at 215-348-5022.
On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Temple Judea offers services for young children, families, and full adult services. Our Rosh Hashanah services all full of music, participation and joy. Following the main service, we gather at Lake Galena for Taslich. Conclude Yom Kippur with a special break-fast with our community. Torah study is led by one of our clergy and is an opportunity to refresh or deepen your understanding of Torah. Free baby sitting is provided for both adult services.
Rejoice and dance with the Torah to celebrate the end of the annual cycle of Torah readings, and the beginning of the new cycle.
Sukkot is so unreservedly joyful that it is commonly referred to in Jewish prayer and literature as Z’man Simchateinu, the Season of our Rejoicing. Dinner and crafts in the Sukkah celebrate this joyous occasion.
Thanksgiving is celebrated by a special community Inter-faith service while the volunteers of the Social Action Committee prepare dinners for families in need.
Celebrate Hanukah at Temple Judea where we light menorahs, sing, make crafts, and eat latkes! (Along with donuts and hot chocolate). Temple Judea often leads the celebration of Hanukah in Doylestown Boro.
Learn about and celebrate nature, trees, and spring.
Come and taste the fruits of Israel and drink wine to celebrate the spring!
