High Holy Day Services
At Temple Beth Elohim we observe the first night, and first and second full days, of Rosh Hashanah. The Erev Rosh Hashanah service begins at 8:00 p.m., followed by a community Oneg. The two Rosh Hashanah morning services begin at 9:30 a.m. Tashlich follows the service on the second day. Yom Kippur is observed with an evening Kol Nidrei service (8:00 p.m.) followed by a full day of observance commencing at 9:30 a.m., Yizkor, afternoon and concluding services. A community Break Fast follows the concluding service.
The High Holy Day Services incorporate the beautiful singing voices of our Adult Choir, led by Cantorial-Soloist Robin Sills and accompanied by organist Richard Sills. The prayer book used at ouradult services isTheGates of Repentance. Large-print editionsare available for those who request them. Our own siddur is provided for the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Children’s Services.
At Temple Beth Elohim our High Holy Day services are meaningful, engaging and inclusive.It is during these services that gestures of appreciation and gratitude are conveyed by the Temple administration to its members for their volunteering efforts and the gracious gift of their time. Members enjoy actively and extensively participating in services during theHigh Holy Days services, and weare blessed to have our young people and adults serving as Torah Readers. They do a beautiful job every year, and we feel a great deal of pride as we listen to them. Our Shofar team, which includes children and adults, adds greatly to the joy of welcoming the New Year.
