High Holiday FAQs
What books do we use? Gates of Repentance is our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur prayerbook. Created by the Reform Movement it contains readings, meditations, and songs and has gender inclusive language throughout.
Where’s it all going to be? Services will be held in our beautiful sanctuary. Tashlich will be at Woodward Park and Yom Kippur Break the fast will be held at a congregants home.
Rabbi? We’ve got one. Rabbi Rick Winer. Word around town is he’s pretty awesome!
Food? No, because, we will be fasting. Well, just on Yom Kippur, the rest of the time there will be food and lots of it. After services on Erev Rosh Hashanah there will be an Oneg hosted by Sisterhood. Yom Kippur Break the Fast will be a community wide celebration at the home of Sindy and Mark Alson.
Parking? There is plenty of parking at TBI, though we suggest you get here early. Parking at Woodward park for Tashlich is outside the Japanese Tea Garden and there is an entrance fee. Street parking is really the only option at Break the Fast. We recommend people carpool (there is a sign up sheets in the lobby). There will be a limited number of spaces reserved for those who need assistance in the Alson’s driveway.
