Since the coronavirus pandemic began our lives have changed. The one thing that has not changed is our weekly Shabbat services. They are certainly modified but the prayers remain the same.
This is all possible because of our Rabbi, President Merv Levin, Vice President Jesse Dobrinsky, and dedicated and knowledgeable members like Manny Lewis, Steve Reinstein, Michael Canter, and Larry Moss. Rabbi Schonblum, Ester Acunis, and Merv provide us with a beautiful and meaningful streaming service every Friday evening and Saturday morning.
As you all probably know by now, we will stream the services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. A maximum of eleven people will be in attendance in the Temple at those times. This will ensure us having a “minyan” so we can have a modified Torah service and blow the Shofar.
The High Holiday prayer book “Machzor Chadash” can be rented from the Temple with a $20 deposit. We will hold a “drive-by book rental” on the following Sunday mornings: September 6, and September 13. Cash is preferred. The dates for the return of the books will be announced later.
Holiday services are as follows:
• Selichot, Saturday evening September 12
• Erev Rosh Hashanah, Friday evening September 18
• Rosh Hashanah First Day, Saturday, September 19
• Rosh Hashanah Second Day, Sunday, September 20
• Kol Nidre, Sunday evening September 27
• Yom Kippur, Morning service Monday, September 28
• Yom Kippur, Evening and Concluding service Monday, September 28
Please note that the Yom Kippur evening service begins at 5 PM and will include Yizkor. It is open to the entire community. The times of the other services will be announced at a later date. Also, all of our streaming services are open to the public.
At this time, the committee extends our deepest and heartfelt sympathies to Andrea Weibel-Cherin on the loss of her husband Murray Cherin.
Richard and I wish all of you a Shanah Tova and hope everyone stays well and safe.
