As we head into our new membership year, which begins on July 1st, we want to share some important updates regarding the High Holy Days (5782) at Temple Sholom!

Read below for some important decisions that we've made about this year's High Holy Day services. We will continue to evaluate plans throughout the summer and will provide updates to our congregational community.

In-person services will be available this year to current members (those who renew their membership for the 2021 - 2022 membership year). Click HERE for Membership Renewal information.

Digital services will once again be available. These services will be of the same high quality as they were last year.

Those who plan to attend High Holy Day Services in-person will be asked to complete a Health & Safety Questionnaire, which will include a question regarding vaccination status.

Those who attend in-person services will be required to wear a facemask, irrespective of vaccine status.

We are currently in the process of designing an online platform that will enable congregants to select their seats for services in the sanctuary.

Both Congregational and Family Services will be offered. Family services will be socially distanced and geared towards those with children under age twelve. Those with children twelve years and older are invited to attend Congregational Services.

At this point, we are planning an online Rosh Hashanah Tot Service.


We look forward to celebrating the High Holy Days together and offering our congregants both in-person and online options.
