High Holy Day Central

The High Holy Days are a special time at Temple Israel, and we look forward to members and honored guests joining us. Together we can explore the themes of these Days of Awe and wrestle with the "Big Ideas" of Judaism as well as inner-soulful work we are called upon to do.

Schedule of Services

Parking ProcedureTo improve the efficiency and organization of High Holy Day parking, we are implementing a new parking process.

Please plan to allow extra time to park and enter the building.  Upon arrival, follow the signs for the flow of traffic. We have increased the number of restricted parking spaces for disabled, maternity and stroller parking in the front of the building.

In service of hospitality, if you are physically able, we ask that you park farther away and walk to the building. As there will be only one point of entry, please do not park in the Preschool lot; parking for all guests will be in the Temple lot or the lot at Immanuel Baptist Church. 

Guest Registration and Honorarium: Temple Israel sees itself as a synagogue and a community center and believes wholeheartedly that any individual or family that wants to pray or feel connected to the Jewish community should be able to do so; therefore, we extend this invitation.

We thank you first for being our honored guest, and second, ask that if you are able to contribute an honorarium please do so. We understand that blessings come in many forms and finances are both personal and private. Please do not let financial considerations deter you from attending. If you decide to officially join our Temple Israel family, we will happily deduct your honorarium from your annual commitment/covenant pledge.

High Holy Day Pledge: We hope you will consider investing at this pivotal time in our temple‚Äôs story. We begin a new chapter, building upon our successes, and, venturing out in new ways. It is an opportunity for each of us to be partners in supporting our community center.

To that end, we are asking that you answer this appeal in the affirmative as so many have done in the past. If you are able, we ask you to consider a monthly pledge offering for the next ten months.

Book of Remembrance Form Remembrance is a soulful endeavor. It is often a time of mixed emotions. On Yom Kippur during our Yizkor service we remember our loved ones who help inspire us to live ever more vibrant and meaningful lives. We recount their names and their deeds and give in their honor. At Temple Israel, these offerings go the Memorial and Cultural Fund.

New Year Greetings: Share your wishes for a sweet new year with your friends and family by submitting a message in our Member directory and Service leaflet. The deadline for greeting submissions is Wednesday, September 25.

Childcare Registration Form: Pre-Registration is required for all Congregants and Guests.

Please note, childcare is FREE to any family who registers by September 26, 2019 for Erev Rosh Hashanah and Rosh Hashanah services, and by October 3, 2019 for Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur services. After those dates, we ask for a contribution from each family who has not preregistered to provide additional staffing as needed. Contributions can be made through the donation tab on our website.
