OUR HIGH HOLIDAY SERVICES


Our services for Rosh Hashanah were meaningful and very well attended. It's interesting on Zoom how people who live out of town, people who would ordinarily never be able to attend services, were able to be with us. We will go through a list of thank you's  in the next newsletter. Meanwhile, I am looking forward to seeing all of us at our virtual Yom Kippur services--6:30 pm on Sunday, September 27 for Kol Nidre, 8:45 am on Monday, September 28 for Yom Kippur morning, Yizkor and Musaf, and 4:45 pm for the closing services. Wishing everyone an easy fast.

SHABBAT SERVICES ON SEPT. 26


Look for the Zoom link for Shabbat services on the regular day--Friday, September 25. It will be the same link as we used for Rosh Hashanah, and the same link that we will use for Yom Kippur. We are resending it just in case anyone has misplaced the link.

PSALMS
We have been reading Psalms at Kohelet Shabbat services. We continue to review  sequentially and with commentary.
 
Psalm 13We ask for God’s help in discouraging times.
 
How long, Hashem will you endlessness forget me? How long will you hide your countenance from me?
How long will my enemy triumph over me? Answer me, enlighten my eyes, lest my enemies boast.
For me, I trust in your kindness. My heart exults in your salvation. I sing to Hashem who has dealt kindly with me. 
 
We pray for God’s help in discouraging times. When maintaining hope we are never defeated.

PREPARATION FOR YOM KIPPUR YIZKOR

As with all Kohelet Yamim Noraim (High Holiday) services this year, our Yom Kippur yizkor service will be on Zoom.  Yizkor comes from the Hebrew root verb which means “remember.”   Since Biblical times, Jews have visited graves of generations past – in the Cave of the Machpelah in Hevron, or Uman, or local cemetaries – to pray to or for, or remember, our loved ones.  During the yizkor service, one way to remember will be to have photographs of those for whom we say yizkor with us.  During the service, we will encourage participants to share these pictures with the congregation if you feel comfortable doing so, either as a virtual background or by holding a photograph in front of your computer or phone’s camera.  This way, in Zoom gallery view, the congregation will be able to see those who we are remembering.

YOM KIPPUR WITH YOUR KOHELET COMMUNITY

We're very much looking forward to sharing the High Holidays with you.  

  • Misty is our Zoom host, and she will mute all of us according to the requests of our service leaders.  There might be times when we'll be unmuted periodically to sing together, cacophonous (and spirited!) as it may be.
  • Kohelet will send out the Zoom invitation the week before services, and that invitation and ID number will serve for the entire time of Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur, including the intervening Shabbat.
  • Please note that Jonathan will be playing the piano in accompaniment to certain of the High Holidays prayers that he will be leading.  We're looking forward to it providing us with a more meaningful, moving and uplifting experience.  Thanks to all for embracing flexibility in our services during these unique times.
  • Most importantly, register TODAY here.
 
Yom Kippur Services Schedule:
 
Erev Yom Kippur, Sunday September 27:  6:30 p.m.
Yom Kippur, Monday September 28:  8:45 a.m.
 
Cost:  $100 for singles, $200 for couples/families.
Please note that 21% of our operating income comes from High Holidays revenue, and we've reduced our fees to reflect that we'll have fewer High Holidays expenses this year.  However, they generate money that we use to operate throughout the year.  We appreciate your generosity at this time.  And as always, if these fees are difficult for you, no one will be turned away.  Please discuss with our treasurer, Judith Cohen.
