We'd love to have you join us for High Holidays. Here is some important information you should know:
Security - Yes, our doors are open to all, but we need to do so safely. There will be armed security during services. The guard will have a list of all those who registered. Please make sure to register in advance, if you have not yet done so.
Reservations - No, we do not charge for seats, but reservations are required. Why? Because of security (see above) and because we'd like to be prepared with enough chairs and food. Imagine deciding to join services are there are no rugalach left for you . To register, click here.
Donations - Donations are not required, but they are greatly appreciated. They are optional, but greatly helpful! See High Holiday Dedication Opportunities here.
How long are Services? Good question. On the High Holidays, we strive to keep it all within 3 hours. BUT, you can come for 1 minute, 1 hour or all year. It's up to you. We are NOT ALL OR NOTHING. Want to come for the full experience? Come at 9 am. Want to come for main services? come at 10 am. Want to come for the Torah reading and sermon? Come at 11. Need to leave? Feel free to come and go as you please. We don't hold anyone hostage! See full schedule here.
When do we eat? My favorite question! We have a fully stocked snack and coffee station in the Shul Hallway, so you can grab a snack, hot or cold drink anytime! In addition, after services, at 12:30 pm we have a delux buffet Kiddush buffet!
What about the children? Bring them to services - they will have a blast! Chana will be leading a fun, interactive and educational Youth Program. Can't make it to services? We have a short family-stye service on Sunday 4 pm.
Shofar - This year, the Shofar will only be sounded on the 2nd Day of Rosh Hashanah (Sunday 9/17), as the first day is Shabbat; Shofar is not sounded on Shabbat.
Tashlich - This year, it will be held on the 2nd Day of Rosh Hashanah. We will be having a Tashlich Ceremony on Sunday, September 17 at 1:30 pm, after the Kiddush Luncheon. See the details here.
