High Holiday Schedule
Please note that for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur during this time of COVID-19, we are doing a combination of in-person and virtual services. In-person attendance is limited to 25 people, who must request attendance in advance. We cannot allow for walk-in attendance this year.
Please see this letter from Rabbi Nina for a full explanation of our policies. Please review as well these Obligations for the High Holiday Services, particularly if you are planning to attend in person.

Content for the High Holiday services will be uploaded to our YouTube channel. Please visit our channel to view many of our typical High Holdiay events: our cantor singing several beloved High Holiday melodies and liturgy; the chanting of the Book of Jonah by one of our congregants; our traditional singing of Hayom; some shofar blowers; and musical performances by congregants.
In addition to the High Holiday Prayerbook (Machzor), we will have these Supplemental Readings for Rosh Hashana, which contain the poems and prayers we will be reading that are NOT in the prayer book. Please find as well a Personal Tashlich Guide for anyone who would like to explore the ritual of Tashlich but will not be attending services for the High Holiday.
