High Holidays 2023/5784

Join us for the High Holidays services. This year, all of our services will be conducted in a hybrid manner, with both in-person and virtual Zoom options available to our congregants. Erev Rosh Hashanah is on Friday evening, September 15th. We look forward to Rabbi Greg and Cantor Jon Tepper as they spiritually lead us in the celebration of Rosh Hashanah. Those who prefer to “Zoom in” can borrow the special holiday prayer book. All times and dates for our Shabbat holiday and special event celebrations will be available by email on the Temple Blast and the Temple website. If you have not registered for High Holiday services this year, please click here.

The sale of holiday seating is a significant source of Temple revenue as it supports all aspects of temple life: ritual services, continuing education, community outreach, social programs, and maintenance/upkeep of our stately building.  By prepaying for the seats, we can ensure that everyone will receive the Holiday Machzorim (for those attending via Zoom), the Temple High Holiday booklet, and other related items representative of the season.

The requested donations are as follows:

  • $200 per member, age 12 and above
  • $280 per non-member, age 12 and above
  • $50 for each child from age 3 to age 12 (both member & non-member)
  • Children under age 3 are free (both member & non-member)

Seat Purchase

You can purchase seats online here.

When you register/purchase seats, you’ll be sent the Zoom link if you attend remotely. If you need it re-sent, don’t hesitate to contact us via email. If you and your family plan to be remote, you can pick up your Machzor prayer books on Sunday, Sept 10th, from 10 AM to 1 PM.  If a seating purchase is a financial concern, please get in touch with Yuri Shikhanovich at yshikhanovich@gmail.com. If you have any questions about the High Holidays, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email or Facebook.
