The High Holidays Are Coming!

The High Holidays are coming! Some of us say they have snuck up on us. I guess if we were really truthful, we would say we just were not paying attention and the time has gotten away from us. I know how much we were all looking forward to in person services for the High Holidays, but please tune in by zoom so we can share the season together. Sunday school and Hebrew school will also be starting soon by zoom as well. I want to offer a big thank you to all our volunteers who make that possible every year and to take a minute to brag on how great a job I think they do for our kids. Yasha koah to all of you!

Rabbi Rubenstein will be starting Holiday services next week with Erev Rosh Hashanahon Labor Day Evening, September 6th. Rosh Hashanah Day I & II to follow and then the week to follow with Yom Kippur. Times are located elsewhere in the bulletin and on the weekly email. I will be letting the Congregation know as soon as possible if we will be able to have some outdoor Sukkot activities depending on the numbers in Bibb and surrounding counties.

Please stay tuned as we plan for upcoming programing in the months to come. We hope to be instituting some new policies in the near future. Be on the lookout for letters about our annual fund-raising drive. I know finances may be tight, but the shul would appreciate anything you can do to help pay expenses for the coming year.

I look forward to seeing everyone on zoom or at Tashlich services outdoors next week! Good Yom Tov to all and may you all be signed into the Book of Life for another Year! Please be safe and well.

Shalom,

Shelley
