Selichot, the kick-off to the High Holiday season, is being held at Temple Sinai this year. Please come out on Saturday night, September 1 at 8:00 pm for a thoughtful discussion and service as we enter these Days of Awe.
Also join us for the Tashlich service on the first day of Rosh Hashanah on Monday September 10 at 5:00 pm. We will gather at Fountain Farms Park in Cinnaminson at the intersection of Willow Dr. and Fountain Ave.
“You will cast into the depths of the sea all their sins” (Micah 7:18-20)
On both days of Rosh Hashanah and on the day of Yom Kippur, kids in the pre-school set (2-1/2 to 5 years old) can enjoy Tikvah Tots from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. This is a program of holiday-themed singing, learning, and other fun activities lead by a certified teacher. Parents are welcome to drop off their pre-schoolers or to stay for the fun. Parents with infants and toddlers are also welcome to join Tikvah Tots and stay with their child.
Youth Programming for Children and Teens
Join our TLC: Tikvah Learning Community members for fun, engaging, and meaningful Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur youth services and activities. The youth programs will run from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm on both days of Rosh Hashanah and on the day of Yom Kippur, and will include a snack. On Rosh Hashanah, parents may wish to return with their children to the main service afterwards for the sounding of the shofar.
Children are also welcome to remain in the main service throughout. Please remind your children about appropriate behavior during religious services.
The Meditation Room is a silent space for use at your leisure during service times. The room will be open both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur. Find peace, tranquility, a calming hush, and beautiful poetry in this space to center yourself for the difficult work of t’shuvah, or repentance.
Afternoon Study Session on Yom Kippur
On Yom Kippur, stick around after the regular Musaf service ends at about 2:00 pm for an intimate shiur (study session) on the theme of identity, privilege, and t’shuvah with Rabbi Nathan.
Healing Circle and Service on Yom Kippur
Beginning at 4:00 pm on Yom Kippur, join Rabbi Nathan for a Healing Circle and Service as we pray for healing of the body, mind, and spirit. Through song, story, and contemplation, the service will help you focus on physical, spiritual, and emotional renewal in the year ahead.
Neilah is the last service on Yom Kippur, held directly after Mincha while the sun is setting. Neilah starts at about 7:15pm. It lasts about an hour or so and is somehow simultaneously intimate, shared, intense, and uplifting. It ends with the final “tekiah gedolah”, the longest shofar blast of the year. Come back and experience Neilah, you’ll be glad you did.
At the close of Yom Kippur after the final blast of the shofar, join your CBT friends in the lobby at Voorhees Middle School for a light communal break-the-fast sponsored by Sisterhood. Just enough of a nosh to get you home!
Each year, we publish a separate booklet for Yizkor. This booklet will be used on Yom Kippur as well as the three other Yizkor services during the year on Shemini Atzeret, Pesach and Shavuot. It combines both the Yizkor service and the Book of Remembrance in which we commemorate the names of departed relatives, friends, and other loved ones.
This year, we are offering you the opportunity to honor the memory of relatives and friends by purchasing either a simple listing of names at $18 per name, or by purchasing a half page ($125) or a full page ($200) memorial. Just provide the names and content and we will design the page for you. We hope you will join in making these memorials a vital part of our tradition by completing and returning the linked order form.
