High Holy Days 5780
The High Holy Day period is an important gateway back into the program year and into involvement with our congregation. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to reconnect with longtime friends, make new ones, recharge your spiritual batteries, and engage both your mind and your heart Jewishly.
Apples & Honey
To make everyone’s New Year as sweet as possible, Shearith Israel will deliver an Apples & Honey bag to each Shearith family, along with all Klei Kodesh, staff and Weitzman Family Religious School teachers. Please support our program and help us make this season sweet!
Volunteer for Apples & Honey
Delivering Apples & Honey bags is fun and rewarding! To accomplish this enormous task, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Volunteering with your family and community is a great way to fulfill a mitzvah.
Bag pick up begins Sunday, September 22 from 11 am-1 pm. Deliveries must be made by Friday, September 27.

Security Briefing Sessions
Leading up to the High Holy Days, Shearith Israel will provide special security briefings.
Each presentation will have the same content and will focus on threat response protocols, but will be tailored to the specific sanctuary where you sit during the High Holy Days.
Please make every effort to attend ONE of the briefings, so you can become more informed and prepared for any security concerns! Sign up to attend a session HERE
