We look forward to the High Holy Days as we usher in a New Year filled with hope, sweetness, and peace. Our congregation comes together to reach for holiness despite the challenges of the past few months, with services that reflect the hard work of our Rabbi, Cantor, our Religious Practices Committee, and Coronavirus Task Force. Although we cannot worship inside our Temple right now, we are very pleased to offer live virtual services that will be meaningful and inspirational for our Members and Non-Members alike. All of the Temple Beth Hillel services and events listed below can be viewed by anyone via Temple Beth Hillel’s website and on our Facebook page. Current Members of Temple Beth Hillel can engage in our services via a private Zoom, and in other activities with limited attendance and advance registration.
For TBH Membership information, please call Teri Parrott at 860-644-0242.
There are no paper tickets this year and, while there is no fee for joining our virtual services, we greatly appreciate any contribution you wish to make in recognition of the important work our congregation does to create a welcoming community and promote Jewish values. You may participate in the mitzvah of Tzedakah and include a donation in the envelope provided, or by folding a tab to make a commitment on the pledge card and returning it in the envelope and we will send you an invoice for that amount. You may also donate via PayPal by clicking here! All High Holy Days donations and any contributions made to the TBH General Fund by December 31 will be matched 2-to-1 by a generous donor, effectively tripling the impact!
If you know other non-members who seek a schedule or information about High Holy Days services, please direct them to call Lori in the Temple Office at 860-282-8466, Ext. (0).
We look forward to the days when we again can welcome you into our sanctuary.
