Please make their job easier. All attendees will be assigned to capsules upon arrival at the minyan. Once you’ve been assigned to a capsule you must remain in that capsule for the Tefilla on both days. Reminder to bring your own machzor. It’s also advisable to bring water.

  • Halachic guides. The High Holidays is a period rich with custom and ritual, personal and communal. This year, in order to minimize the possibility of Corona contagion and to allow for social distancing, davening has in part moved outside the main building to the area of the amphitheater and to the shaded area on the Tachkemoni campus. Heat considerations and a desire to minimize the duration of physical contact in Shul, have generated a need to shorten the duration of the Yamim Nora’im davening. The Halakha Committee of the Shul has drawn up three sets of guidelines to facilitate this goal – which will be implemented over the Yamim Nora’im.
    (1) Guidelines for Shortening Selihot during Elul 5780 – Tishrei 5781
    (2) Guidelines for Shortening the Davening on Rosh HaShana 5781
    (3) Guidelines for Shortening the Davening on Yom Kippur 5781
    On a personal level, many find the rich details of the Yamim Nora’im challenging. In addition, because of Covid-19, many individuals have chosen to pray completely or partially be-yehidut (in the absence of a minyan). To this end, Rabbi Aryeh Frimer has drafted the guides below which will hopefully assist congregants in navigating through the various issues.
    (4) A Rosh HaShana 5781 Corona Guide to Public and Private Prayer and Ritual
    (5) A Yom Kippur 5781 Corona Guide to Public and Private Prayer and Ritual
    Questions stemming from any of these documents may be referred to Rabbi Frimer at the following email address: Aryeh.Frimer@biu.ac.il

Everything else:

  • Rosh Hashana Greetings from our members can be viewed here. Thanks to all who contributed. You can still add your greeting by sending an email (you can include a picture) to social@bermanshul.org
  • Rosh Hashanah Kids Programming. With Rosh Hashanah just around the corner and the fact that this year our small children will not be able to participate in the davening on the Berman campus, we have created a Rosh Hashanah Children's Activity Guide to make the chag a little more meaningful for young children. The guide includes Tefillah, especially some key tefillot unique to Rosh Hashanah, stories, games and a quiz that can be delivered in a small gathering or even at home with siblings. We hope you enjoy the guide and we wish you a happy and healthy new year! Download it here or from the Noticeboard.
  • If you think you'll need to blow shofar for yourself or someone else this year, or if you're just interested in learning how to blow shofar, one of our members has posted several videos to YouTube, available here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ8FjZ-aqypqPQIlMA6wd9A.
  • Shabbat Shuva Drasha by R' Yehezkel Babkoff will be given by Zoom next Thursday, September 24th at 20:00. Details will be posted on the live calendar and in next week's bulletin.
  • Yom Kippur. Details of arrangements for Yom Kippur Tefillot will be sent out next week.
