Volunteering
Producing our High Holy Days services is truly a labor of love for us, but it takes hundreds of volunteers to make sure everything is in place so that our celebrations run smoothly. If you have a little time to contribute, we'd love to have your help. We have jobs for all types of skill sets. Click here to explore our volunteering opportunities.

Name tags
Specially-made name tags are required for entry to all High Holy Day services as an important security measure. Name tags were mailed to members in good standing on September 6.

Friends and Family In-Person and Online Attendees
We are no longer accepting new guest registrations for Yom Kippur services.

Reflections and Remembrances
The submission period for our Reflections booklet has ended. The committee is hard at work developing a meaningful supplement to your High Holy Days experience.
