   Beit Chavurah's HIGH HOLYDAY SERVICES   
are coming soon!  · ·  Please save the dates!

-- Sunday, September 25th, 2022 (at 6:00 p.m.) --

I deeply regret that I have to cancel our Beit Chavurah Erev Rosh Hashanah service on Sunday, Sept. 25th., due my foot surgery on Wednesday, Sept. 21st and the doctor insisting that I remain completely off my feet for an entire week after the surgery.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.  I was looking forward to sharing both of the High Holydays with you; unfortunately, that will not happen this year.  However, we will have our Kol Nidrei Service (as scheduled) on October 4th.  I hope you will be able to join us!

-- Tuesday, October 4th, 2022 (at 6:00 p.m.) --

Yom Kippur Eve (“Kol Nidrei”) begins the holiest day of the Jewish Year.
This is a beautiful, prayerful service and includes the chanting of the
Kol Nidrei prayer by our Rabbi and Cantor, Rich Altman.

Yom Kippur is a day of fasting; so there will be no
refreshments or Kiddush following the service.


Also coming in October . . .

-- SHABBAT and SIMCHAT TORAH SERVICE -- Friday, Oct. 28, 2022  (6:00 p.m.)

   During the Simchat Torah holiday,  the last Torah portion (from Deuteronomy) is read, as well as the first verses of the first portion (from Genesis), thereby indicating that Talmud Torah–  the study of Torah– never ends.  The idea that Torah study is cyclical finds its expression in the joyous ritual of dancing around and around the Torah, known as hakkafot ().
