BY JEWISH RHODE ISLAND STAFF
Summer is winding down and we are gearing up for the High Holy Days. Our thoughts turn to the start of school and the bright promise of the Jewish New Year!
Jewish Rhode Island does not list information regarding specific services and schedules. This year, we contacted all the synagogues, temples and congregational groups and asked about in-person and virtual services as well as whether tickets will be required. What follows is the current information from those who responded along with current contact information from all known synagogues, temples and groups in our coverage area.
For the most up-to-date information on service schedules, please contact the synagogues directly or visit their websites. Keep in mind that COVID-19 continues to influence openings and closings so direct contact is your best source of last-minute information.
