The High Holy Days are here! We begin with our Selichot Service on September 16th, at 7:30 PM. This will be preceded by Torah Study at 5:30 PM, followed by Havdalah, and Bring Your Own Dairy Dinner. The High Holy Day Services begin on Wednesday, September 29th, with Erev Rosh Hashanah and continue through Simchat Torah which we will celebrate on Friday, October 13th. We will hold our Sukkot celebration in the Sukkah at Cantor Patti and Ray Turner’s home, as well as Friday Night services (October 6th & 13th) and Saturday Torah Study (October 7th) as we have for a number of years. Please see the attached schedule of all the High Holy Day Services on page 4. Yizkor Services will be on Thursday evening, October 12th, at 7:00 PM, at Temple. As you can see, it will be a busy, but very rewarding Holiday season! Tickets for the Services will be mailed to members next week. If you are not a member and would like to join us for the Holiday Services, please contact us at HHH@CongregationNerTamid.org or by phone at 972-416-9738 and please leave a message.
