L’shana tovah!

The High Holy Days are approaching. We will be regathering in person (in accordance with current Covid protocols), as well as livestreaming all services.

To quote Rabbi Cohen, “Let us return to a Temple of prayer and reflection, support and compassion, learning and growth…Let us rejoice and be glad in the opportunity to see each other. Let us recommit to the legacy and mission of our extraordinary community.”

2022/5782 Services Schedule

We invite you to join us at the worship experience that feels most comfortable for you. All services in the Sanctuary at The Temple Beachwood and at University Circle will follow our congregation’s customary High Holy Day worship style. The Renew My Soul Services and Teen Services are more informal. All services will also be available on livestream.

Remembering Our Loved Ones

We invite you to honor the memory of your loved one by listing their names in our annual Book of Remembrance, which is distributed at our Yizkor Service on Yom Kippur afternoon. You can complete the order form online or return the form enclosed with your High Holy Day ticket mailing. Name for inscription must be received by Tuesday, September 6.

During the Yom Kippur Yizkor service, the names of Temple members who passed away during the last year are read aloud. We are honored to include names of non-Temple members, however, these names must be called into The Temple. Please contact Cyndi Wilson at 216.455.1965.

High Holy Day Tickets

All member families will receive two name tags and lanyards that will serve as adult tickets and will admit you to any service (in Beachwood or University Circle) during the 2022 High Holy Day season. Please bring your tickets to all services. Children through college age will be admitted on your ticket. Members and community members may purchase additional tickets online or by calling 216.831.3233.

High Holy Day Prayer Books

As we worship in our beautiful sanctuaries this year, we will use our Mishkan HaNefesh prayer books. Through the generosity of Julia & Larry Pollock, the William (z’l) & Janet Stern Family, and the Dolores Urdang, Molloy and Mulcahy Families, these books are provided as you enter the sanctuary, and then returned as you depart. These prayer books will be used during all High Holy Day services excluding the Young Family, Renew My Soul and Teen services.

For those participating via livestream, we are happy to lend you our High Holy Day prayer books. Please call 216.831.3233 to schedule a pick up time.
