Over the past few months, we have worked hard to create an array of meaningful and spiritually fulfilling Days of Awe offerings while remaining steadfast in our commitment to the safety and well-being of our members, staff, and guests.

With this in mind, we are excited to bring you a Days of Awe program menu with multiple points of access so congregants can feel a part of our Kehillah K'dosha – our sacred community – in whichever way is best for them.


Below you will find dates, times, and health & safety information on each service and experience offered during the Days of Awe.

Furthermore, please note the following:

Masks will be required for all in-person attendees at all services.

In addition to in-person worship services, live streaming will be available for those who cannot or do not feel comfortable attending in-person.

 There will be two tents set up in the synagogue's backyard this year to provide increased outdoor seating for those who are more comfortable sitting outside regardless of which service they attend.

NEW Adult Learning Opportunities – Open Minds 5782

Service 1 (9:00 AM): Attendance will require proof of vaccination.* This service will offer congregants an option to attend in person with a sense of comfort and safety, as expressed in the Days of Awe survey information collected earlier this year. Similar to our current Shabbat guidelines, masks are required for all attendees.

*Requiring proof of vaccination for a fully vaccinated event of over 250 people is in accordance with a current New York State guideline.


Service 2 (12:00 PM): This service is for adults and mature students 5th Grade and older (almost identical with the 9:00 AM service, but slightly abbreviated). No proof of vaccination required to attend. Similar to our current Shabbat guidelines, masks are required for all attendees. This service provides an in-person opportunity to worship for families with children who have not been able to be vaccinated, for others that choose not to or cannot be vaccinated, and for anyone who wishes to attend a later service. Clergy will not be wearing masks while on the bima and leading services.

 

Family Services – 3:00 PM

On the afternoon of Yom Kippur, we will offer a single outdoor family service for younger students from Pre-K through 4th Grade.

No proof of vaccination required to attend. Similar to our current Shabbat guidelines, masks are required for all attendees.  Chairs are available, but feel free to bring your own blanket and chairs to sit on!


Study Session with Clergy – 4:00 PM

The Gates are Closing...or are They?
The final worship service on Yom Kippur is called Neilah, which means “locking” or “closing”, related to the theme of the closing of the gates for the day and our opportunity to be sealed in the Book of Life. What, however, does it really mean to say the gates are “closing”? As the long day of fasting ends, what important messages does Neilah offer for us to take with us beyond Yom Kippur for living a worthy, good life?

Yom Kippur Afternoon*, Yizkor*, and Neilah – 5:00 PM

*Proof of vaccination is required to sit in the Main Sanctuary during the Afternoon Service and Yizkor. Attendees who have not provided proof of vaccination will sit outside in the Tent. Similar to our current Shabbat guidelines, masks are required for all attendees.
