Dear Friends,
 
 With the month of Elul nearly upon us, the Jewish new year and the High Holidays are just around the corner. Allow us at Young Israel of West Hartford to be the first to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
 
It is during this time of year that we all begin to make the necessary preparations both physically and spiritually to be ready for the approaching days of awe and holiness.

Towards that end, you will find in this email and included packet all the pertinent forms and details relating to the High Holidays at Young Israel including a full Tishrei Schedule (High Holiday through Simchat Torah), High Holiday Seating Policies, Seating Reservation Forms, Childcare Information and Shul-Bay flyer as well as options to join our annual Rosh HaShana Card or to inscribe your children’s names on our Young Israel Legacy Kol HaNearim Tallit.

Also, we are opening our Kol Nidre Campaign and you will find a letter from Yitz Moss detailing our goals for this year’s appeal. We ask that you join us in this important fundraiser for our shul.

The 5780 High Holiday Packet can be accessed here (click here) and reservations and forms can be submitted online at youngisraelwh.org/seats5780.

Please remember, seats cannot be reserved until all past commitments (including dues and other pledges) are paid in full or a payment arrangement is worked out. Maria will be sending out current statements in the coming days. At the same time, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. If needed, please speak confidentially to Les Loew or Rabbi Brander.

Our rabbis teach us, "Ein Kedusha Bli Hachanah - there is no holiness without preparation".  It is our hope that through these technical arrangements and our own personal spiritual preparations, together, we will be able to make this year’s Yamim Noraim (High Holidays) deeply meaningful and spiritually uplifting.
 
Sincerely,

Rabbi Tuvia Brander                       Les Loew

Rabbi Tuvia Brander, Mara D'Atra                     Dr. Les Loew. Coordinator
