If you are interested in taking the initiative in acquiring the merit of an Aliya on the Yomim Noraim, for yourself or someone else, and investing in our Kehilla at the same time, please contact the office or Martin Lipman.

Aliyos for the High Holidays

Once again we are conducting a silent auction via email for alliyos on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  The alliyos available are listed below.  Bidding starts at $36 per alliyah.  We may move your bid to a different alliyah (with your permission) in order to balance them out.  Last year the bidding fell a bit below the previous year but still raised over $2600.  This year there is one more alliyah than last year because Yom Kippur comes out on Shabbos.  As the Rabbi has reminded us in prior years:

The Mishna Berura (Ch.584:S.K.8) quotes the great compendium on all Yomim Noraim matters, the Mateh Ephraim, as follows: 

"It is appropriate for every G-d fearing man to make an effort to get an Aliyah on the Yomim Noraim (Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur). Even in places where the Aliyos are usually auctioned off [to the wealthy], one should "purchase" an Aliya for that time of year for as much as his means allow. 

"[And lest one think that there is something degrading about purchasing an Aliyah at such a holy time of year, the truth is] just the opposite: There is greater spiritual advantage in a Mitzvah that comes one's way through monetary expenditure than in a Mitzvah that has come one's way free of charge."

If you are interested in taking the initiative in acquiring this merit for yourself or someone else and investing in our Kehilla at the same time, please call the office (216-382-1958), or contact Martin Lipman at Martin.Lipman@iriworldwide.com

The alliyos are:

Rosh Hashanah, First Day

  • Cohen
  • Levi
  • Shlishi
  • Rivi'i
  • Chamishi
  • Maftir

Rosh Hashanah, Second Day

  • Cohen
  • Levi

Kol Tuv,

Martin Lipman
