High Holidays 5779

Shana Tova!
We are excited to spend the High holidays together. We hope you will come to shul ready to sing, reflect, and make the high holidays beautiful. On these days our building is filled with members of the synagogue, their families, and guests. It's a great time to meet someone new. Take the time to wish everyone you meet a good holiday.

Every year we strive to improve the High Holiday experience for everyone celebrating at CSAIR. We are excited this year to experiment with a few new ideas. Rabbi Katz and Rabbi Ethan Linden will be alternating what service they are delivering their divrei Torah, sermons, each day of Rosh Hashana and the night and day of Yom Kippur.

Cantor Stevens will be leading our services in the Sanctuary from the middle of the congregation during Musaf. Also, this year for the second part of Kol Nidre (after the amidah) services in the Taub room will be led by Cantor Stevens and in the main Sanctuary will be led by Nahum Binder. We hope that these changes will foster a sense of one community praying in multiple spaces.

Thank you to our clergy, office staff, lay leaders and volunteers for all their hard work to get us all ready for the High Holidays.

L'shana Tova U'metuka! Best Wishes for a sweet and happy 5779!
