Lechvod Hakehila Hakedosha,
We would like you to know that B”H, we will be hosting the Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur tefillot this year as in the past, but with special accommodations due to health concerns.
In order to ease everyone’s mind and make our members as comfortable as possible, we have decided to rent a tent and move the minyan outdoors.
As the tent is a big expenditure, we are asking everyone to donate $50 per seat to help cover the expense. If anyone is able to offer more, it will be a great zechut for you and your family to enable others to participate in the holy tefillot of Rosh Hashana. Please do not be deterred from joining us if, for any reason, you cannot cover the fee.
In line with government guidelines, we are asking everyone to wear a mask even though we will be outdoors. We do request, however, that there not be any “policing” of fellow minyan members regarding how the mask is worn. Mr. Donny Zigdon has been appointed to oversee this matter and any concerns should be brought only to him.
As far as the seating format, we have tables in different sizes: 8 feet, 6 feet and 4 feet. The 8-foot tables can accommodate two people on each end and the 4-foot can accommodate one person. The 6 foot tables should be used if you are sitting with family members.
In trying to make the best of a situation that is less than ideal, we ask that you take your friends’ needs into consideration. This will go a long way toward making a harmonious tefilla.
These have been difficult times for everyone, and if you need assistance or know of anyone who does, please contact the Rav. There are limited funds available. Anyone who would like to donate to this fund will certainly be gaining an extra zechut.
In the merit of our working together to enable our shul to host the tefillot in the most dignified and meaningful way possible, may we be zocheh that our prayers reach the Kisei haKavod and elicit rachamei Shomayim for ourselves and all of Am Yisroel.
Wishing you a G’mar Chatima Tovah.
