High Holy Days 5782

Shana tova! The High Holy Days, also called the Days of Awe, is a time for us to look inward, outward and upward: inward to our conscience – what needs to change this year; outward to the world – how does our inner change impact the repair of God’s world; and upward to God who inspires, demands, cajoles, and waits patiently for our return. There is no better place to spend the High Holy Days than with us!

Mahzorim:  We've Got You Covered!

Thanks to the generosity of Gayl & Alan Berger and family, our High Holy Days prayer book, Mahzor Lev Shalem, is provided for you.  If you plan to pray virtually, you can borrow a book.  Please view the pickup schedule here.  You will need to come into the building to pick up your mahzorim. There will be no curbside pick up this year.  Family mahzorim are also available for pick up.

If you prefer to purchase your own copy, please contact the synagogue office; the cost is $36.  You may also download a copy for a nominal fee here.

Please keep in mind, in case of inclement weather, the in-person (outdoor, tented) services will be canceled.  You may want to pick up a book just in case.

Personal Prayer before the Ark

Sign up for a time slot between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to stand before the holy ark in the David J. & Ruth A. Moskowitz Sanctuary or outside in our tented area alone or with others in your home for personal prayer. Bring a note with you or a writing utensil and write on one of our notes, which will be sent to the Kotel. Register here. 

Tashlikh

We will gather on Sunday, September 12 at 11 am & 2 pm  at different, scenic locations around Cleveland where we will seek to cast our sins away and earn God's forgiveness as we approach the Jewish New Year.  Click here to learn more.

Chesed Food Collection

"This is My chosen fast...Share your bread with the hungry, take the homeless into your home; clothe the naked when you see them, do not turn away from people in need."  - Isaiah 58:6

Please bring non-perishable, unexpired food to the synagogue for our collection to benefit the JFSA Food Pantry by September 30.

High Holiday Choir

Due to the restrictions of Covid-19, the High Holiday Choir will not be part of our virtual services, but will be with us in spirit.  Listen to tracks from past years, recorded in studio by our choir, with highlights of both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services here

Cemetery Memorial Services

It is customary that we visit the graves of our loved ones before Rosh Hashanah or between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We come to their gravesides to let them know that we still feel their presence in our hearts. It is our opportunity to honor them for all that they accomplished in life and for the impact they had on our lives. We also come to draw strength and comfort from the memory of our loved ones as we approach the new year.  Download Prayers for Graveside Visits here or join us Sunday, September 12 at 10 am at Chesterland Memorial Park and noon at Glenville Cemetery.

Rosh Hashanah Seder

Adopt the beautiful custom among Sephardic and Indian Jews of a Rosh Hashanah Seder. Learn more here.
