We look forward to celebrating the High Holy Days in person and on Zoom!
The High Holy Days come early in 2021 - Rosh Hashanah begins on the evening of Labor Day, Monday September 6th and Yom Kippur starts with Kol Nidre, on the evening of Wednesday, September 15th. We begin our formal introduction to the Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe) even earlier, with the community-wide Selichot service on the evening of Saturday, August 28, a beautiful service that features Rabbis
and Cantors from our many congregations coming together to provide a moving, meaningful and musical experience.
We have worked carefully with our Covid Advisory Committee, the staff, and the Avodah Committee to create a plan that allows us to come together safely as a community, to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend, and to give people choices about how to participate.
Many ways to participate:
In the Sanctuary
This will be our traditional service with normal Shabbat-style seating in our beautiful space. To attend in the sanctuary, please provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test along with your pre-registration (see FAQ for more details). Masks will be required for everyone indoors.
In the Yard
We will simulcast most services to the yard, with lay leaders serving as facilitators. Masks are optional for fully vaccinated people outdoors and required for those who are unvaccinated.
Participate through Zoom or stream the services on Streamspot.
Family and Youth Programming
Special services for children and families will take place in the yard at times when the main service is not taking place.
Additional programs will include our community-wide Selichot service on August 28, our free Community Kol Nidrei service in the lower sanctuary, Tashlich at the lake, Shofar on the Stoop(s), and more!
Registration is open, and we are prioritizing members and their guests through August 24th. if you are a member who has not received an email regarding HHD registration, please contact the office. We are hoping to have space to accommodate non-members. Space permitting, we will open registration to the broader community on August 25th, at which time you will find a registration link on this page. We invite you to become a member of PSJC today to take advantage of member priority registration. Guest passes for non-members and guests of members is $350 per person. Please note: if you apply for membership 9/3 and beyond, we will process your membership following the High Holy Days. However, you are welcome to attend on-site services, and the Member table will have your information. Introduce yourself as a new member. We ask that you fill out this form to gain access to the Zoom links.
Free community KN service
We continue our tradition of hosting a free community Kol Nidre Service, open to all. Registration opens August 25th.
