Preparing for the High Holidays

August 2021   Keeping Connected

I hope you are all enjoying your summer and able to find some time for relaxing. As you know, we are preparing for the high holidays, which are “early” this year. It always amazes me how many committees and volunteers need to come together to make the high holidays happen and all of these committees are currently working hard, including the Phased Reopening Committee, the Security Committee, a special high holidays technology committee, and of course, Rabbi Perry. I know this year will look different from last year and different from the “before times”. We are hearing varying degrees of comfort level from our members and we are taking it all into account as we plan. We know that we will not be able to meet everyone’s needs or wants but I can guarantee you we will do the best we can while keeping the safety of our community as the #1 priority, from both a health and security perspective.

If you have not already, please do not forget to send in your pledge form. It is really important that we have an understanding in August of who is retaining their membership in the congregation and what the pledge amount is so we can make sure we are on track for the year. It only takes a minute to complete the form so please make sure to complete it and return it to Bonnie by August 4.

Please continue to enjoy your summer. Let’s hope for less rain in August, and I hope to see you soon.  Please reach out at any time if you have any concerns.
