L'shana Tovah! Please join us when we welcome the New Year 5781 online as a community, gathering together to hear the sound of the shofar and offering prayers for renewal, forgiveness, good health, and peace.
We’ll share Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur via livestream to maintain the safety of our Temple family while also embracing the opportunity to experience the holidays in new and significant ways. Both Reform and traditional worship options will available for a second year. Kol Nidre begins on Sunday evening, September 27. Find the schedule
Find the Reform services on YouTube. Traditional services are on Zoom.
Rabbi Meir Bargeron will lead Reform worship with Cantor Yvon F. Shore and Maestro Robert Nance. Cantor Shore, Director of Liturgical Arts and Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, also joined us last year for the High Holy Days.
Returning to lead our traditional services is Michael Small, who previously served as the guest spiritual leader for the holidays at Congregation B’nai Jacob. Ron Friedman, who regularly leads our Shabbat morning service, and Pamela Friedman, our Religious School Principal, also will be our service leaders.
Only the clergy, service leaders, and a very small number of support personnel will be in the building, and they will be taking all appropriate precautions. This will allow us to offer a worship experience from the bimah and our familiar sacred spaces, as well as follow distancing guidelines. We will not hold any in-person services either in our Sanctuary or Goldstine-B’nai Jacob Chapel.
Links to access livestreaming will be sent to members via email prior to the High Holy Days. Friends of the Temple who receive our weekly email update also will receive the links. We warmly welcome guests - please contact the Temple office at (260) 744-4245 or email@example.com for more information.
