NOTE: ALL SERVICES TEMPORARILY HELD ON ZOOM.
To get the zoom addresses:
If you have renewed your membership or purchased a High Holy Days ticket, you will be emailed the zoom invitation for each service twice, first a few days before each service and again the morning of the service.
Even the open discussion and concluding services on Yom Kippur afternoon, which don’t require a ticket, do require a zoom invitation. For security purposes, zoom links will only be emailed to those that rsvp. Please contact the temple office by email in order to RSVP for the open services at firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember, no one will be excluded from attending High Holy Days services due to the inability to pay. Please contact Cindy by emailing the temple office to request a sponsor for your ticket and provide your name and email address. Your name will be held in confidence.
High Holy Day Schedule 2020:
As the sun sets and we light candles, we begin this most sacred day with the beautiful, haunting melody of Kol Nidre and join with Jewish communities around the world in this day of introspection, renewal and resolve to better ourselves in the New Year.
We join together for davening the beautiful prayers and melodies for Yom Kippur; confess our sins and shortcomings, read the Torah and uplift our spirits.\
Share stories of hope, fortitude and inspiration.
In the afternoon we will begin with the Torah reading on laws of justice from Leviticus and have a discussion on the story of Jonah – out of the belly of the whale. Yizkor will begin around 5:15 as we mourn our personal losses and also all of the devastation caused by the current COVID pandemic. We’ll conclude Yizkor with the MeShebeyrach prayer for healing, performed by our CBE choir (pre-recorded).As the day of fasting and introspection comes to an end, we’ll read and chant the beautiful last part of the Yom Kippur liturgy, the Nei’lah prayers. Then we’ll do the Havdallah together (just as we did one Saturday evening back in July)!Break your fast, thank God for bringing us to the end of this amazing day, and think about socially-distancing at CBE for Sukkot in 5 days’ time!
