6:00 PM Welcome and Leisurely Dinner
7:30 PM Service led by Rabbi Rosie Haim and Chuck Fink
Welcome the Jewish New Year 5781. We gather at 6:00 pm to say hello and join come together for dinner. The celebration continues with the Yom Kippur service.
Celebrating Jewish Life was founded on the principle that the social and the sacred nature of Judaism go hand-in-hand. It is our peoplehood and religious traditions that defines us. As we address the challenges and opportunities before us, we do so with a sense of caring and concern for one another, and with hopeful anticipation of being together again in whatever way will be comfortable for you.
Starting with the High Holy Days, we hope to be at Landerhaven and will exercise caution and maintain mask and hand sanitizing practices. In order to prevent people walking around without masks, we will forgo a formal meet and mingle time with hors d'oeuvre. Rather, after you register, you’ll be invited to proceed leisurely to the tables in the large ballroom. Our tables will be social distanced, and at each table we’ll allow for empty chairs between family units, and seat only four to five people at the table. After dinner, we’ll remain at the tables, replace our masks and continue with the service. I think this will minimize confusion and help us to keep our safety standards at the necessary level while we pray together. Our inspiring music and the sounding of the shofar will be arranged to maintain appropriate guidelines.
Arrangements have also been made for virtual and/or hybrid models to accommodate varying scenarios so that friends at home can join with us also. Dinner accommodations will also be made for those at home.
Please be assured that we will respond to the changing circumstances as necessary and we invite you to participate in whatever way you are comfortable. The most important thing is that we celebrate together!
