We have thought carefully about how to hold some in-person events safely, and we have been consulting with our congregation’s Covid-19 committee of healthcare professionals and public health experts. We will strictly adhere to Dane County’s public health guidelines. We will require all participants to wear masks and keep a minimum of six feet distance between people who do not live in the same household. All gatherings will be outside in parks with a shelter. In case of rain, participants can use the shelter. We strongly request that if you feel ill, you stay at home. We will adjust these guidelines as the current conditions in Dane County evolve.

We require pre-registration to ensure that no more than 10 people gather for our Rosh Hashanah discussion and Yom Kippur meditation and no more than 25 people gather for tashlich. We are not allowing any food at these gatherings. After registering, you will receive confirmation and the location. We will have multiple events to ensure that everyone who is interested can participate.

We ask that you register no later than Friday, September 11 so we have adequate time to create small groups.

Rosh Hashanah Small Group Discussion
On the first day of Rosh Hashanah we will have a discussion on themes of the holidays following services.

Tashlich Ceremony with Shofar Blowing
On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, we will take part in a ceremonial ritual of letting go of actions, thoughts, or feelings from the past year. One of our members will blow shofar as we welcome in the new year. Please bring some bread to throw into the water. We will offer several tashlich ceremonies with shofar blowing at different locations. Download a Tashlich ceremony here.

Yom Kippur Meditation
On Yom Kippur morning, a member will lead a meditation circle to reflect on the meaning of the holiday.
