Days of Awe 5782

Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,

If you wish to attend a service onsite during the holidays and haven't already filled out our online registration form to indicate which service you would most want to attend onsite, please do so as soon as possible. Pre-registration will close at the end of the day on Wednesday, August 25 (tomorrow!) so that we can begin the process of creating attendance lists to let folks know which service(s) they are able to join in-person.

More information, including how to join our online services over Zoom, will be available soon — thank you for your patience!

Add Your Voice to Our Communal Al Chet Prayer

If you're attending our Selichot service, you'll have an opportunity (as we do each year) to write down on index cards the mis-steps for which you want to atone this year. We'll weave those anonymous responses into the "Al Chet" prayer that we offer on Yom Kippur morning.

If you're not going to be at Selichot, you can still anonymously contribute to that prayer here via Google Docs. Write down what you want to let go of, and may that writing-down be the first step toward the release your heart and soul most need.
