High Holiday Packet 2023-5784

We look forward to celebrating the New Year and Yom Kippur with you. The High Holidays are made up of several holy days and are a time for refreshing, renewing and asking for forgiveness. The choices on this form are designed to help enhance your experience and make it more meaningful for you and your whole family.

It takes tremendous preparation and coordination by our Clergy, staff, Board of Trustees, volunteers and security to provide a safe and uplifting spiritual experience for our congregants during the High Holidays. Thank you to all who help make our holidays successful.

Please include the first and last names of your loved ones below. Please submit your names by September 1, 2023.

Yom Kippur Apology and Ushering

Asking for forgiveness from others (mehkhilah) is a Jewish tradition before the High Holidays. “Whereas it is known that all people sin, whether it be deliberately or inadvertently, and whereas this is the season of the year when people are supposed to apologize for their sins, we, the undersigned, hereby express our regrets for the sins that we have committed against you during this past year. And we hereby grant you forgiveness for the sins that you have committed against us during this past year too. We realize that simply signing this apology does not take the place of going in person to the person whom we have hurt and we shall try to do that too. We realize that a general apology does not fulfill the halachic requirement to name the sin and to atone for it specifically, and we shall try to do that as well. ...let our names on this list be a sign to all that read them that we regret the things we have done wrong in the past year, and that we resolve to try to do better in the New Year.” 
   1These are tickets for guests of Beth Shalom members 26 years of age and older who are not full time students.
This is only required if you are adding names to the Book of Remembrance. Please make sure that you proof the spelling of the names. 
This is only needed if you are making a donation to include your name on the Yom Kippur apology.
Up to 3 lines with 15 letters and/or numbers on each line
Please include the Hebrew & English name and both the Hebrew & English date of death. Please place your order for the plaque by July 15, 2023 for the best chance to have it returned and placed by Yom Kippur.
