Join us for High Holiday services. The prayers are warm, the people are friendly and everyone feels at home.

Whether your background in Jewish prayer and practice is extensive or limited, the services will leave you feeling enriched, connected, uplifted and energized to start your New Year in the most meaningful way.

Services will be led by Shlichat Tzibur Barb Nagel and Rabbi Brian Serle.

Many of the prayers are recited by the congregation in unison, often in English, so that everyone can participate. Hebrew/English prayer books are used throughout the service. The rabbi provides an English running commentary of explanatory and meaningful insights.

Services are all free of charge.

(Thanks to Chabad of Santa Fe for the beautiful introduction)


High Holiday services will be held in our “Mishkan”, a  LARGE TENT   outside our building at 1820 Main St., La Crosse, Wisconsin. All services will be live in person at CSOA, as well as livestreamed on Facebook Live on our Facebook page.
