Rabbi Daniel Sherman

L’SHANAH TOVAH TIKATEIVU!

Rosh HaShanah is here.  It is time for us to wrap up the year 5783 and to welcome the New Year 5784.  Cantor Garfein and I are so excited to welcome everyone back to Temple for our High Holy Day Services this year – we cannot wait to see you and to experience these Days of Awe together.

Reminder: I hope you have made your reservations for services.  This will help us to expedite the process of entering the building for both Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.

We will begin Rosh HaShanah with our Evening Service on Friday, Sept. 15 at 7:30pm.  Cantor Garfein is looking forward to her first High Holy Days with us, and we will all be moved by the beautiful music of this time of year.  We want to thank Dr. Marcus St. Julien and our High Holy Day Choir for adding their talents and voices to help make our services even more special.  After services, all are invited to join in our Sweet New Year Reception sponsored by the Temple Sinai Sisterhood.

On Saturday, we will begin with our Morning Service at 10:00am, which will include our Shofar Service and the Reading of Torah.  Our luncheon reception will follow.  We will continue at 2:30pm in the afternoon with our Family Service for all ages.  At 3:30pm we will gather on the steps outside the sanctuary to walk over to Audubon Park for Tashlich, as we attempt symbolically to cast away our sins at the start of the New Year. 

On Sunday afternoon at 1:00pm, we will gather at Hebrew Rest Cemetery #3 for our Kever Avot Ceremony.  This is our annual pilgrimage to the cemetery at the start of the year to visit the final resting place of our loved ones, whom we especially remember at these High Holy Days.

Again, we look forward to seeing you at Temple for Rosh HaShanah.  On behalf of your Temple Sinai Family, we want to wish you a good and healthy year of peace and blessings: L’SHANAH TOVAH TIKATEIVU!
