PHC - High Holiday Plans

We have been working hard at setting up our Beit Kenesset for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur in such a way that we are a safe distance from each other, of course, with masks over our mouths and noses at all times during the prayers.

Plans for Yom Kippur

Baruch Hashem, we have received a lot of positive feedback regarding our outdoor Shofar Service this past Rosh Hashana. Therefore we would like to provide more outdoor prayers for Yom Kippur. We would like to have a brief Yizkor Service for all, in our parking lot at 5:45pm on Monday afternoon. This of course will be weather permitting.

If everything goes well, we may continue with a Neila Service outside at approximately 6:00pm.

Please be aware that only those that registered should be coming to the indoor services. Unfortunately there will not be any room this year indoors for extra people who have not registered.

There may be a simultaneous minyan in the social hall if things get too tight.


Corona Update:

Masks and social distancing are still a must.

At all times when a person is in our building one must cover their mouth and nose with the mask. We understand that this is hard to do, but if you cannot comply please do not come.

We would like to commend everyone that has participated and cooperated so far.

At this point everyone is welcome to come to our Beit Kenesset. Those that have special medical conditions please consult with your doctors.

On the High Holidays, registration is necessary.

Children that can sit and not run around and follow our social distancing and mask rules are also welcome.
