HIGH HOLY DAY SCHEDULE

Led by
  • Rabbi Mitchel Chefitz
  • Cantorial Soloist Karen Pincus
  • Selichot service in Kaplan at 7:00 p.m.

The Hebrew word "selichot" is used to describe the penitential prayers traditionally said before and during the High Holidays. It is also used to describe a special service that is held each year in Ashkenazi communities on the Saturday night of the week before Rosh Hashanah. In Sephardic communities, selichot prayers are recited throughout the entire month preceding Rosh Hashanah.

We will be joining Beth David Congregation for their Selichot observance.

At the conclusion of the Reception, we will walk to the Margaret Pace Park (North Bayshore Dr. and N.E. 4th Ave.) to perform Tashlich, a meaningful and welcoming tradition to cast off our sins for the Jewish New Year. All are welcome! Free and open to all who wish to participate. Join us at Temple Israel or meet up at the park to cast your sins into Biscayne Bay. Free parking at Temple Israel.
  • 1:00 p.m. Rosh Hashanah Morning Service in the Sophie and Nathan Gumenick Chapel

It is a Jewish custom to remember our deceased family members and friends during the High Holy Days and to visit their gravesites, if possible. Many of our Temple members have relatives and friends buried in the Greater Miami area, and some observe the tradition of visiting them on the Sunday between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This year, we will be joining many other members of the Greater Miami Jewish community for Kever Avot services to honor the departed at our local cemeteries on Sunday, Sept 16. If you have a loved one buried in Miami, there is a good chance there will be a group of mourners there to honor their loved ones as well. It would be a mitzvah to join them.
