L'Shanah Tovah 5781!

Rabbi Elder, Rabbi Marx, Deborah Brown, and their families wish you all a Shanah Tovah U’metukah - a good and sweet New Year. We look forward to sharing our High Holidays with you and your families. May the year to come be filled with health and happiness, joy and blessing, peace and gratitude.

It is not possible for us to gather together in person for our High Holiday services this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have not made this decision lightly, recognizing that the High Holidays are a unique opportunity for us all to come together as a congregation to worship, to study, and to share friendship and food. But religious gatherings around the world have been the source of outbreaks of this disease. Sitting alongside each other, sharing conversation, and joining together in prayer and song are all simply too dangerous in these times. We would be heart-broken if our coming together in a physical space were to result in the illness of even one of our members, many of whom are part of the most highly at-risk populations.

We have spent the past few months planning meaningful and beautiful High Holiday services online, including creating an online prayer book. We will have music with Sara Goodman and Ed Zelnis, our High Holiday music director of many years, along with our four long-time soloists. We have improved the quality of our sound online in order to allow everyone to fully enjoy all the music, as well as the Shofar service.

While this will be a different experience than gathering in person, it still will be Hakafa coming together in a holy way. We hope that you will all plan on joining us for our High Holiday services.
