        Dear TBT Members, August 23, 2021

L’Shanah Tovah! Happy New Year to each of you and may you each be inscribed for a good year in
this upcoming year, 5782!

After much reflection and consideration, it has been determined that Temple Beth Tikvah will
conduct Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services this year both in-person, with restrictions, and
simultaneously offer the services over Zoom and FB Live. The restrictions are listed in the email that this
letter accompanies. High Holiday Services will be led by Rabbi Schloss, accompanied and enhanced by
the beautiful voice of Cantor Wendy Goldberg. This will be Cantor Goldberg’s first year doing High Holy
Day cantorial services at Temple Beth Tikvah, and we are excited to meet her.

The following is this year’s High Holy Day worship schedule:

• Erev Rosh Hashanah services will be held on Monday, September 6, 2021, starting at 7:00 p.m.;

• Rosh Hashanah morning services will be held on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, starting at 10:00
a.m.;

• Yom Kippur evening services, Kol Nidrei, will be held on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, starting
at 7:00 p.m.;

• Yom Kippur morning services will be held on Thursday, September 16, 2021, starting at 10:00
a.m.; and

• Yom Kippur afternoon services will be held on Thursday, September 16, 2021 as follows:
Mincha at 3:30 p.m., Yizkor at 5:00 p.m., and N’ilah at 6:00 p.m.

As the coronavirus/Covid 19/Delta virus remains as a public health threat in our community,
Temple Beth Tikvah will not conduct an oneg or break-fast at the temple. However, we look forward to
joining in worship with you, whether through Zoom or in-person.

Services will be conducted using the beautiful “Mishkan Hanefesh, Machzor for the Days of Awe”.
A flip-book pdf of this new machzor will be available in the Zoom service. We urge you to look through
this wonderful new High Holy Days machzor, as it contains so many beautiful readings and meditations.

Finally, Judith Oppenheim has graciously agreed to compile the Yizkor list again this year. If you
have additions or modifications, please contact her by email (her email address is listed in the email that
this letter accompanies). New members will need to contact her to have the names of their loved ones
included in the Yizkor list. Judith is providing a copy of last year’s document in the event you wish to
review it to determine whether you wish to make changes.

We look forward to seeing you soon,
l’shanah tovah tikatevu ve techatemu!
B’racha,
Myrna S. Reingold, V.P. Ritual
