Temple Beth El offers ‘Taste of the High Holy Days’

Most Jewish people know about the High Holy Days. Even many non-Jewish people have heard of these holidays. But what do they really mean? Those questions will be answered at “A Taste of High Holy Days” from 4-5:30 p.m. Sept. 4 at Temple Beth EL, 2815 N. Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach. Temple Beth EL is hosting the event in partnership with the Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians and Jews and the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. All faiths are encouraged to attend the event, which is free. Rabbi Leonid Feldman will be joined by Cantor Norman Brody, Cantor Jenna Daniels and the Temple Beth EL Choir. Apples and honey will be served. The goal is to explain the meaning of the High Holy Days in a creative and innovative way, Rabbi Feldman said.

“On Rosh Hashanah, we celebrate the Jewish New Year, but it has nothing to do with Jewish history or Jewish people,” he said. “Most people don’t know that. We’re celebrating the birthday of the world.”
