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. We are accepting names until Friday, August 25th. Click here to fill out the form online or call Cheryl Ross at 216-831-3233 x261.

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 2023 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 and sacred spaces 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.

For those participating via livestream, we are happy to lend you our High Holy Day prayer books. Please contact Jennifer Mendelson at 216-455-1720 or jmendelson@ttti.org to make arrangements.
