Yamim Noraim Planning Survey

Dear HJCS members and guests,

As we look forward to the Yamim Noraim, High Holidays, we have formed a committee to address the way in which we will celebrate the High Holidays. We want to assure you that health and safety are at the forefront of our concerns and that the length, physical setup, and format of the services will be developed in accordance with those concerns.  

We are fortunate to have a large building that provides us with opportunities to have multiple services, including outdoor options (weather permitting).

We are seeking your input through a survey via SurveyMonkey to help us tailor the service options to address the needs of our diverse Kehilla.  That survey will be distributed via email early tomorrow.

We are aware that people have different preferences and circumstances and we will strive to continue our tradition of offering a warm, welcoming and accepting atmosphere that characterizes our congregation.

We welcome responses from multiple adults in each household. Please complete this 3-minute survey by August 6th.   

A finalized format for High Holiday services will be developed by late August due to the fluidity of the unique situation that we are all experiencing. 

Thank you;

HJCS

HJC Alliyos for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur – second update

Here is our second update.  There are still bargains to be had, and opportunities for Cohanim and Levi’im.  Bidding for Rosh Hashanah will close a week from Tuesday (9/19) at 10 pm.  If you have placed a bid and have not heard from me since the initial acknowledgement then your bid is still good.  I will always get in touch if you have been outbid.

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

Kol Tuv,

Martin Lipman
