High Holy Days 5778

Contact: Paula Botkin 216-831-6555 ext.109

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 here. Our service in the David J. & Ruth A. Moskowitz Sanctuary features Cantor Shifman and the B'nai Jeshurun choir. Our service next door, at Gross Schechter Day School, offers a more intimate setting without a choir. Throughout the building, there are services for children of every age, families, teens and young adults. Whether you are inspired by the music, moved by the rabbi’s words, or awed by the power of community, you will find a place here.

Reminder - Mahzorim: You’re Covered!

Thanks to the generosity of Gayl & Alan Berger and family, you do not need to buy copies of the High Holy Day prayer book, Lev Shalem, which we are now using. Gayl & Alan have donated 2,500 mahzorim to the congregation, to be held at the synagogue and used each year. When you come to synagogue, you will find your prayer book in the seat pocket in front of you (in the David J. & Ruth A. Moskowitz Sanctuary) or on your seat (in Rosenthal Auditorium and at Gross Schechter Day School). We ask that you treat these books with great care and leave them in the pocket or on the seat upon completion of each service so they may be collected and stored from year to year.

 


 

For Endowed (reserved) Seats in the David J. & Ruth A. Moskowitz Sanctuary, please contact Paula Botkin.
Due to anticipated additional requests for handicap parking, requests will be limited to one pass per family. Please contact Paula Botkin with your State-issued permit and license plate number.
