2021 / 5782:
Dear Community Members,
We are delighted to announce that we plan to hold High Holiday services in Ohel Leah this year. This is of course subject to possible changes in the regulations and there are still some important restrictions as follows:
To maximize our capacity and commitment to safety, proof of vaccination must be included with every booking. If you have a medical reason for not being vaccinated please let us know and exceptions may be made. We want to accommodate as many people as possible. You can help us by letting others know that this year anyone attending a service will need to register ahead of time.
There are other ways this year will be different. Although our beloved Cantor Arnon and Rabbi Sahar would very much like to be with us, the current situation makes this prospect unlikely. Therefore, “in house” and “local talent” will lead our services. Usually, we have multiple services with a number of overseas cantors and guests. While we are still exploring additional options, at this time we plan on offering two services, one will follow the Artscroll Mahzor and one will be a Sephardic service.
Because of these added protocols, we are posting our PDF booking form (click here) and access to our online booking form (click here) earlier than usual. Let us pray that just as 5781 draws to a close and 5782 appears on the horizon, so we will witness the end of the pandemic for the whole world, confident that God’s love and mercy will bring us a Shana Tova Umetukah.
