High Holidays

Shalom, Chaver.

The pandemic is not yet over. In response to the feedback we have received from our diverse community, we will be holding all High Holy Day events in “hybrid” mode – simultaneously in person and on Zoom. Additionally, in order to maximize safety, we will be holding two services in tandem on certain days. Please familiarize yourself with the schedule we have formulated.  Once you have made your “chaver” contribution, you will be given the opportunity to sign up for the services you plan to attend. Please note the following guidelines:

  • Parking accommodations will be arranged off-site.
  • All attendees will be required to pre-register, sign a liability waiver form, and will be assigned specific seats for the services marked below with an asterisk (*), if they choose to attend those services.
  • Families with children under 12 are strongly encouraged to attend the “Creative-Family” services, as those children are not yet eligible for COVID vaccination.
  • Attendees will have the option of attending entirely on Zoom.
  • All Chaverim will have access to two (2) High Holy Day seats or computer screens. Additional seats/screens will be made available for purchase.
  • We will cap in person attendance at all services at 200 persons, to enable adequate social distancing.
