High Holiday FAQ

Can anyone come to High Holiday services?

This year, the socially-distanced seating plan limits availability; registration for seats is now closed. After congregants have been assigned their seats, remaining seats will be offered to visitors. Please contact the office with questions or requests.

What additional safety protocols are in place?

  • Children’s services will be held outdoors.
  • All indoor service attendees must provide proof of vaccination, including young people aged 12+.
  • Face coverings must be worn by all visitors ages 2+ when inside the temple buildings. If you do not have one, a mask will be provided.

When are services?

Please see the pages for each holiday for exact service times. We will be offering services in person and over Zoom.

I am delighted to share and echo this beautiful new year message from the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. This year is a year of sh’mita in the Jewish calendar cycle- a year of release. May we all find the strength to release what we can, to create the space for the healing our world deserves.
G’mar Hatimah Tovah,
Rabba Kaya
