The High Holidays come late this year. Rosh Hashanah begins on the night of Sunday, September 29, and ends on Tuesday, October 1. There will be religious services on Sunday night, Monday, and Tuesday as is this congregation’s tradition.
Yom Kippur begins with Kol Nidre on the night of Tuesday, October 8, and ends with the Breakfast on the night of Wednesday, October 9.
For each holiday there is a very special event scheduled. At the beginning of Rosh Hashanah eve, Sunday, there will be a naming ceremony dedicating the Ark to Martin and Laura Lynn Miller in recognition of their on-going generous support and contribution to Temple Israel.
On Yom Kippur night, Tuesday, there will be a ceremony appropriately dedicating a rock on the Tree of Life to our beloved Rabbi acknowledging the 18 years of dedicated service to Temple Israel, who is himself a rock of this congregation. And, while this year is the Rabbi’s “chai year,” the dedicated rock will recognize that the Rabbi has been our congregation’s chai, it’s life, each of those years. If at all possible, please plan to attend both evenings in support of these joyous events, as well as the religious services.
