L'shana Tovah! When we celebrate the High Holy Days this year, we’ll welcome the New Year 5781 as a community, gathering together to hear the sound of the shofar and offering prayers for renewal, forgiveness, good health, and peace.
However, as we begin a year like no other, we’ll share Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur online to maintain the safety of our Temple family while also embracing the opportunity to experience the holidays in new and significant ways.
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.
Our clergy, prayer leaders, Ritual Committee, and staff are preparing a meaningful and memorable High Holy Days experience for all of our congregants. Both Reform and traditional worship options will available for a second year. Erev Rosh Hashanah begins on Friday evening, September 18.
