Members Only:

As Soon As Possible - It takes a village to produce our High Holy Days services. If you have some time to contribute, please volunteer to do so.

By August 16 - Submit the names of loved ones who've passed away during the past year or others whom you wish to have remembered. All names will be added to our Remembrance book, and the names of those who've passed away during the past year will be read at the Yizkor service during Yom Kippur.

By August 16 - Part of the Yizkor prayer is a promise to perform the mitzvah of tzedakah in memory of your loved ones.  You can fulfill that promise in advance by making a donation toward the publication of our Reflections/Remembrance book.

By August 27 - Members in good standing will receive name badges automatically, which will provide entrance into any of our High Holy Days services. If you'd like loved ones to join you, please request name badges for them. Everyone needs a name badge to attend our services, even infants.

By September 10 - There will be a potluck lunch immediately after our 2nd Day Rosh HaShanah service.This event is free and open to all, but please let us know if you're coming so we'll know how many chairs and tables to set up. There is no need to sign up if you are attending the service only.
