Holidays & Festivals

Holidays at The UJC are joyous events. In addition to festival services, The UJC celebrates in its own style – lift a beer at Sukkotoberfest, enjoy some champagne at the (adults only) Hanukkah Cocktail Party, sing along at each year’s original Purim Schpiel, recite the Four Questions in one of 25 languages at the Community Seder.

The 5780/2019-2020 Holiday and Festival Calendar is below.  Detailed information on upcoming holiday celebrations to follow.
