		                                    High Holy Days		                                </span>

Shana Tova! Temple Sinai’s first entirely virtual High Holy Days are approaching, and our clergy and staff are already immersed in preparation. We certainly recognize that this year’s Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur will not look or feel like those of past Holy Day seasons. However, we are planning and working with great attention and sincere intention to ensure that the coming Days of Awe are truly ‘awe’some and equally special, and we look forward to worshipping and being in virtual community with you.

High Holy Day Service Participants Needed
Send us videos or photos of you or your family participating in one of the rituals  below and be featured during our High Holy Day services. Click here for more information and the link to submit your photos and videos.

  • Show us your shofar skills
  • Light the holiday candles
  • Participate in the Ashamnu prayer 
  • Send us your inspiration for 5781
  • Did you have a baby or grandchild since last Rosh HaShanah (October 1, 2019). Send us a photo and the baby’s name!  

Yizkor Book
The Temple Sinai Yizkor Memorial Book honors the memories of loved ones throughout our community. This year, we will create a virtual Yizkor Book that will be shared in advance of Yom Kippur.  For those unable or uncomfortable accessing the book via virtual means, we will make a printed copy available at that time. Click here to submit a name for the Yizkor book by August 30.

Volunteer Opportunities
As High Holy Day preparations continue, there are many volunteer opportunities available. Click here for more details and to sign up. (except for the Teen Techie Mitzvah Corp):

  • Deliver High Holy Day bags to members (September 10-16)
  • Serve as an onsite Shammash for our Moments of the Ark program (September 21-26)
  • Assist with the Click-A-Mitzvah drop off dates (dates vary)
  • Participate in our Teen Techie Mitzvah Corps (teens only). Click here to join the Teen Technie Mitzvah Corp.

After signing up for one of these opportunities, you will be contacted directly with additional details and specific date and time sign up opportunities. All of the volunteer opportunities will have specific health and safety protocols in place and Temple Sinai will provide all necessary PPE equipment.

Teen Tech Squad
Does your tech need a tune up?
As we prepare for the virtual High Holy Days, now is the time to make sure your computer or tablet is in good working order! We will be using Zoom, livestream and Vimeo for our various services and programs. You will need access to high speed internet and computer speakers to be able to experience the services. If you need help getting your devices set up, let us know as we are creating a Teen Tech Squad to help. Please call 404-252-3073 or click here to complete the form and someone will reach out to assist you.

Want to join the Teen Techie Mitzvah Corp?
Temple Sinai needs 8th-12th grade volunteers to be on-call tech assistants for congregants to prepare for our high holy day programs. This is a great opportunity to help engage and interact with our Temple Sinai members and do a mitzvah! Click here for more information and to join the Teen Techie Mitzvah Corp.

Moments of the Ark
While we cannot gather as usual during these Holy Days, we are able to provide an opportunity for households to take a few moments in our sacred spaces on an individualized basis. Click here to sign up for a slot to assemble in front of the Ark (either in the Sanctuary or in the Freeman Family Chapel) to have a few moments for private prayer. It is an opportunity to gather close to our Torahs, in our sacred spaces, to offer the prayers that speak to our hearts. If you would like to serve as a Shammash for Moments of the Ark, click here. We will be maintaining social distancing protocols in order to keep our community safe.

Following last year’s success with Click-A-Mitzvah, Temple Sinai is excited to again partner with Second Helpings Atlanta to collect donations for the Community Assistance Center in Sandy Springs.

You have the option to donate through our Temple Sinai Amazon Wishlist anytime between August 28 – October 2 or we will also be hosting contactless drop-offs at Temple Sinai. More information coming soon. 

Volunteers are needed to help make Click-A-Mitzvah a success. Click here to volunteer.
