High Holy Days 2023/5784

Dear Members,

Shanah Tovah!

This year’s High Holy Day Temple services are more family-friendly than ever. We’re thrilled to once again offer Hugim/Babysitting for infants through Grade 3 and High Holy Days Your Way for students Grades 4-6. Our team will provide exceptional care and age-appropriate activities to learn about the Jewish New Year.

That’s not all! New for this year, we hired photographer Jay May to provide free family photos for Temple members before and after Rosh Hashanah Morning services. We will have coffee and light snacks available in Jack’s Place while you wait for your session, and your photo session will be in the Waller Chapel. When you sign up for a 5-minute slot, you will receive a complimentary 5×7 photo (additional photos will be available for purchase directly from Jay May).

Also, we are returning to Member Tickets – tickets will arrive in your mailbox in mid-August. You may also request tickets for guests or out-of-town family. Everyone attending services will need a ticket to enter the building for all services.

To (1) register a child for a morning activity, (2) sign up for a family photo session, or (3) request guest tickets, click on the image below, download our Mobile App, log in to the Member Portal, or call Santa at 502-423-1818.

Whether you’re a longtime member or joining us for the first time, we look forward to an incredible, meaningful High Holy Day experience at The Temple!

Shanah Tovah!
