Rosh Hashanah 5781

Friends,

As we shared with you last week, this year’s High Holy Days will be a unique experience, one we will long remember. What has not changed is that the High Holy Days will continue to uplift us, to bring us together in community, and to nourish us spiritually.

I appreciate your patience as Temple Sinai have wrestled with the impact of COVID-19 on these most sacred days. Today I am pleased to be able to share with you the full plan for Rosh Hashanah 5781, taking place in just a few weeks. Work continues on the Yom Kippur schedule and we will communicate that plan in the coming weeks. In the meantime, the following information is enclosed.

This will be a contactless pickup; details to follow.
