There is a special feeling being together in person for the High Holy Days. That is part of the reason why these are the best-attended services all year.  Yet there are those in our community for whom gathering indoors without masks is just not safe, especially with the larger crowds. Though we are not requiring masks, we ask that you please consider wearing a mask to help protect others during our services.


For those who cannot safely gather without a fully-masked congregation, we are pleased to offer livestreaming Temple Israel services in the library at Beit Ha’am. Everyone joining the service livestream in the library MUST wear a mask. We will bring the Torah scroll into the library during the Torah processional in the morning service to add to the communal inclusion.

It is our hope that by creating a space for people who need double-masking to gather safely in person we will be able to facilitate a more meaningful holy day experience for all. 

JFS Food Drive

Jewish Family Services will be collecting food throughout the High Holy Days. Bags and lists are available in the lobby, and you can bring your filled bag back to Beit Ha’am. Thank you!

Tallitot on the High Holy Days

The tallit (or tallis) is traditionally worn during daytime services, with the exception of Kol Nidre (Erev Yom Kippur). Worshipers are welcome to wear a tallit if they choose, especially for the Kol Nidre service.
