Returning In-Person & Safety Protocols
During these High Holy Days, we invite you to return to our sanctuary and experience the services in-person. You have the option to participate online from your home by registering at rodephshalom.org/hhd-registration.

We remain committed to keeping our community safe. All in attendance who are able are expected to be vaccinated; we recommend all in attendance wear a mask.

To access High Holy Days services online, please register at rodephshalom.org/hhd-registration. If you would like to purchase a prayerbook, visit bit.ly/hhdbooks.

What is different for these High Holy Days?

For families with children, infants through pre-teen, both Contemporary and Classical morning services will have age-appropriate youth options during the sermon. This is in-person only. (Those who previously attended the afternoon service for our youngest are invited to come to either of the morning services.)

Please check our website, your email, and upcoming written communication for the latest information, including COVID-related updates.
In anticipation of a healthy and meaningful new year, L’Shanah Tovah!
