High Holy Days

L’ Shana Tovah!

We are excited to share Temple Beth Hillel’s plans for celebrating the 5782 High Holy Days services. As we emerge from COVID, Rabbi Dean Kertesz, Cantor Shayndel Adler, the Ritual and Reopening Committees and so many others have worked diligently to create safe and meaningful services–both in-person and streaming options will be available.

Reservations are needed for both in-person and online services, and can be arranged by contacting the TBH office at tbh@tbhrichmond.org or 510-223-2560. For those attending in-person services (including children over 12), masks along with documentation of completed COVID vaccinations from at least two weeks prior are required. Children under 12 (who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated) may attend if they provide a negative COVID test completed no more than 72 hours prior to the service. Everyone attending in-person services is required to wear a mask. There is no cost to attend TBH’s High Holiday services; donations would be greatly appreciated.
