Haverim – Dear Friends,
We are looking forward to celebrating the High Holy Days with you and your family.
The Covid -19 pandemic continues to remain a significant concern in our community. Out of abundance of caution we are encouraging our members and guests to watch High Holy Day Services via our enhanced Live Stream this year. However, if you wish to attend in person services you are welcome to do so with the following considerations:
Wednesday, September 15
Kol Nidrei First Service: 5:00PM-6:30PM
Second Service: 7:30PM-9:00PM
Thursday, September 16
Yom Kippur Morning / Yizkor First Service: 9:00AM 11:30AM
Second Service: 12:30PM-3:00PM
Yom Kippur Mincha One Service 4:00PM
Yom Kippur Neilah One Service 6:30PM
Please note, some services will be abbreviated to accommodate the above schedule.
5. When you sign up for a Service on Rosh Hashanah, you will automatically be assigned to the same time block on Yom Kippur. (In other words, if you are signed up for the First Service on Rosh Hashanah, you will also be assigned to the First Service on Kol Nidrei and Yom Kippur morning. We regret that we do not have the ability to mix and match.)
Please note that both the First and Second Services will be identical to each other.
We request that you attend only the services that you reserved.
IMPORTANT: Please RSVP by calling the Temple office at 561-832-0804 on or before September 3, 2021, to reserve your preferred time slot. Once 150 attendees have signed up for a particular time slot, all other persons will be placed in the other time slot.
We insist that those in attendance follow the above requirements to insure The greatest degree of safety for all.
Alternatively, we encourage and invite you to enjoy Temple Emanuel’s High Holy Days Services via our live stream this year. The services of an audio-visual production company have been engaged to provide our members and guests with an intimate and enhanced viewing experience. Live streaming is complimentary to everyone including guests and friends and can be viewed per the schedule of services listed above.
We invite you to stop by the synagogue to pick up a Machzor for use at home and we will loan you as many copies as you need. Selections of the prayer service will also be available on our website.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Temple Office at 561-832-0804 if you have any questions or require assistance.
Temple Emanu-El remains committed to your Jewish life and connection and pray that the words that conclude Yom Kippur – Next Year in Jerusalem – will ring true next year and that we can be together wherever we gather without fear or trepidation.
Shana Tov u’Metukah – Wishing you and yours a healthy and happy New Year.
The live streaming is FREE to everyone…
