Decorum and Attire

The High Holy Days are a special time of the year. To help make this time special for all, we ask our members and guests to abide with a few basic requests...


Decorum

Our services are for all of our members; we hope you will find them inspirational and enjoyable. Please cooperate with the ushers. No one will be seated during the Rabbi’s sermon and when the ark is open. In fairness to other congregants, we ask that you do not reserve seats.

Attire

We ask that all males wear kippot and all Jewish men over the age of Bar Mitzvah to wear tallit. Please bring your tallit to morning services on Rosh Hashanah and to all services on Yom Kippur. Women are most welcome to do the same.

Prayer Books

Please bring your own Lev Shalom Machzor (High Holy Day prayer book). The Congregation has a limited number available for use and we would like to make those available to those who do not have a High Holy Day prayer book. The Lev Shalom Machzor is available  for purchase in advance through the Beth El office at $36 each.
