High Holy Days

Friends,

This year, the High Holy Days at Temple Sinai will be inspirational, and, as always, deeply meaningful. Throughout the ages the High Holy Days have been a time of renewal, of change, of connection, and of hope.  In good times and bad, our people have come together during the Days of Awe and, by turning to God, found the commitment and faith to face whatever challenges have come our way.  In that sense, this year is no different.  Indeed, our people have faced far worse things than the current pandemic, and did not waiver in their resolve to come together during the Holy Days.  This year we will do so again, ushering in 5782 with joy and dignity.  

But it is not only our commitment and resolve that has kept us alive and helped us thrive as a people, it is our flexibility, our willingness to adapt to changing times to the needs of the day and find new ways to keep our ancient traditions.

This year, we will be offering both in-person worship (with capacity limits and other COVID-19 precautions) and virtual options. 

Members wanting to attend in-person service will need to register online here. Capacity is limited due to COVID-19 precautions. You must be logged into your account to register. Click here to learn how to create an account.
