HIGH HOLY DAYS 5781 – WHAT TO EXPECT

Even though our High Holy Day services will not be in person in our beautiful sanctuary this year, we have been hard at work to plan an exciting new, engaging, inclusive, interactive, and meaningful digital sacred event that you can experience from the comfort of your own home.  We will transcend space to help us all feel connected spiritually and as a community.  A complete list of experiences/services is below.

The High Holy Days is an opportunity to reflect on where we have been, and where we hope to go from here. This year we are more aware than ever of our connection to all people and our own fragility. So, how can you turn your home into a holy space? Rabbi Boxman’s message for the ‘Most Unusual High Holidays Ever’ can be seen here.

FUN FAMILY SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES DURING THE HOLIDAYS

We are well underway in our 10 Days of Tikkun – each day of the holiday, a different CKT leader will suggest an act of tikkun olam that you can perform.  We invite you to take a picture of that act of loving kindness and share it on our Facebook page. If you missed the first 4 days, here are the challenges: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4

Families also have the opportunity for a little fun competition in our Stairway to Heaven Escape Room Challenge. We have all age appropriate challenges so it’s fun for the whole family — Play with your family and friends near and far! The games begin on Saturday, September 19, 2020–first day of Rosh Hashanah and will end on Monday, September 28, 2020 –Yom Kippur when we break the fast. In order to participate in all challenges, you must sign up and download the app “Goosechase“. Good luck and HAVE FUN!

FOOD DRIVE

As is our custom, we will be conducting a food drive for the WECARE Pantry at the Soref JCC.  Return your bag filled with nonperishable items in front of the synagogue weekdays September 21 through September 29 8:30-2:30PM.  The last collection will be taken on September 30 from 9:30-11:30AM.

PRAYER BOOKS
The prayer book liturgy will be displayed during broadcasts. Kindle versions of the prayer book are available at Amazon.
