Jewish High Holy Days in Honolulu, Hawaii 2010

As the Jewish calendar year of 5770 draws to a close, many Jews will flock to their places of worship for the "Days of Awe," "Days of Tshuvah," or High Holy Days  This year, Rosh Hashanah, literally "Head of the Year," begins on the evening of Wednesday September 8th and lasts 10 days through Yom Kippur, the Holiest day in all the Jewish tradition.  Yom Kippur, literally "Day of Repentance" involves a 24-hour long fast, and is spent mainly in the Synagogue or "Shul."

In Honolulu, and throughout the State of Hawaii, it's no different, even for many un-affiliated and non-religious Jews.  Any Jewish person who will be traveling through town at this time may not know where to turn, and this my also be the case with afore mentioned people as well.  So, in the spirit on Oneness and good wishes for a sweet and prosperous new year, here are some of the High Holy Day schedules and links.
