High Holy Days

Selichot ~ Prayer, Repentance, and Tzedakah
On the Saturday night before Rosh HaShanah, we gather together for a very special service to help us prepare for the upcoming High Holy Days. The service is called “Selichot,” named for our prayers for forgiveness that we begin to offer at this time. The Selichot service introduces us to the themes, liturgy and music of our Yamim Noraim – the Days of Awe – thus helping us to get ready for this most holy and important time of year. The more we prepare, the more we get out of our High Holy Days.
This year we begin with a dessert reception and Havdalah at 8:00 pm as we say good-bye to Shabbat and welcome the week beginning. At 9 pm we will begin our Selichot service. We hope that you will plan on joining us for this very meaningful and beautiful service as we prepare for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur and the beginning of 5780.

Food Basket & Food Drive Donations ~ Temple Dor Dorim opens its hearts to families in need. Once again, during the High Holy Days, we will be assembling beautiful food baskets decorated for the bimah. These baskets will be donated after Yom Kippur to The Cupboard, the Goodman Jewish Family Services Food Bank. While floral arrangements are indeed beautiful and traditional, food baskets are a wonderful way of helping others in need.

We welcome any monetary donations to help cover the cost of these baskets. Acknowledgements are in knowing that you have done the mitzvah of tzedakah as well as being recognized in our High Holy Day programs. Click here to donate now.

Reminder: We will be collecting canned and non-perishable food as well. We will distribute grocery bags at Rosh HaShanah services to be filled by you. Please bring your filled grocery bag back to Temple Dor Dorim on Yom Kippur. Your kind and generous donations have been very much appreciated in the past, and we look forward to 100% participation this year.

Book of Remembrance ~ Remembering Our Loved Ones
Throughout the Generations eternalizing our beloved departed through acts of tzedakah in their names has been an important component of Judaism. In this spirit, we will inscribe the names of our loved ones in our Book of Remembrance, which will be printed and distributed during our memorial Yizkor Service on Yom Kippur afternoon.
Inscribe your loved ones in the Book of Remembrance.
