High Holy Days

 

Every year, the Holy Days present special times when we gather as an entire community.  As we enter into the second High Holy Day season affected by Covid, we are so grateful for the opportunity to return to our shared, sacred space to reflect, repent, and pray together.

With health and safety as our highest priority, all services on campus will be limited to those who are fully vaccinated against the Covid virus. In addition, given the recent LA County mask mandate, all people entering the Temple Judea campus, from the time they exit their vehicle until the time they return to the inside of their vehicle, are required to be masked at all times, whether indoors or outdoors, except while eating and drinking. Please make sure to bring proof of vaccination, a mask, and a government-issued ID with you when you arrive. Please note that we have organized additional services to ensure the ability to gather safely.  

Our vaccine requirement also means that children under the age of 12 cannot attend services on campus, as they are too young to be vaccinated at this time. For families with younger children, or families who prefer to gather outdoors, Rosh Hashanah@Camp is the perfect way to celebrate this special time.  

In addition, each early service on campus will be live streamed. So, if you cannot be on campus, or simply choose not to be, you can join us virtually and enjoy the music, prayer and spirituality you have come to expect from the comfort of your home, much like you did last year.  Click HERE for information about accessing our High Holy day services online.
