IMPORTANT NOTES REGARDING THIS YEAR'S HIGH HOLY DAYS

Get into the holiday spirit with our Pre-Rosh Hashanah “drive-bys!”
Meet us at the synagogue so that we can greet you, loan you copies of our High Holiday prayer books (up to 2 sets per family), and share other holiday supplies and treats.  You’ll leave with everything you need to prepare for the holidays.  (Let us know if you are NOT physically able to come to the synagogue - we will be happy to drop off at your local address.)  Thank you to The Brotherhood, The Women of SSTTE, David & Lucy Simkins and Lulu’s Bakery owners/congregants Jay & Victor Muse for helping to make our drive-bys, gifts and supplies possible.

Please plan to drive by for pick up on one of the following dates/times (Delivery for Homebound available upon request)

If you will be out of town and cannot pickup your books in person or have them delivered locally, you can purchase the books.  NOTE: Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are separate volumes, but they are typically sold as a set.
