Dear TBT Families,

It truly has been an extraordinary year.  We have overcome challenges together to keep Temple Beth Torah vibrant and a place for all of us to find strength and connection.  

The High Holidays begin at sundown, Friday September 18, and we are reminded this is a time for self-reflection and coming together as a Jewish community to pray, celebrate and ask for forgiveness. We are thrilled to be joining you for this year's  Home for the High Holy Days- Together Beyond Tradition @ TBT. These virtual offerings will include new and innovative ways of observing the holiday’s in a meaningful way while maintaining the tradition so many are accustomed to.  Enclosed is all of the information related to the High Holidays.  Please review to ensure a smooth and fulfilling holiday for you and your family. 

To make Home for the High Holy Days- Together Beyond Tradition @ TBT as intimate as possible, we have created innovative ways to bring TBT to you and bring you to the sanctuary.  We encourage you to make this year special by dressing the part, projecting the services onto your television and setting aside time and space in your home to observe the holidays.  We will be providing technology guidance to those that need, to ensure a smooth and sweet New Year. 

A few more ways to connect for the High Holidays:

1.   A New Year’s card fundraiser - send a picture or a 10-20 sec. video clip wishing L’shana Tova to all.  For the photo include your family with a poster saying “Shana Tova” or “Happy New Year” (or holding something that represents Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur).  Due August 28th.

2.  Elul Stories – We would like you to create Elul Stories with video clips or a written paragraph and photo describing an unexpected lesson you learned in 2020. Due ASAP

3. While most of our offerings are online, we encourage you to schedule some time in the sanctuary between Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur to stand before the arc and have your personal moment in the sanctuary and to decorate a stone for our memorial table. You can drop off your food donation for the Mercy Soup Kitchen of Wyandanch at that time.  

4.  On Sunday, Sept 13 we will schedule times to drive thru and say Hi to the Rabbis, Cantor and leadership pick up your High Holiday Gift Bag. 

Our Kol Nidre appeal is a tradition that fortifies the Jewish soul, reminding ourselves to look out for one another and set examples for our children and grandchildren.  In this spirit we give Tzedakah, charitable giving to help others in need.  Each year we ask that you give a little more than the previous year, this year is no different.  This will help support the families at TBT in need so they may provide a Jewish education for their children or continue to remain in our temple family to participate in our diverse programming and services.  Help us reach our goal of 100%. 

In the spirit of sharing our special services with others, we are offering courtesy tickets for family members (adult children and parents) that you would typically purchase in prior years.  Please attach your other family members' information along with your pre-registration, in order to receive the unique login code.  Links will be sent to everyone that has pre-registered prior to the actual services.  PLEASE NOTE: You need to be current with your pledge, fees and tuition to receive your High Holiday login information.

Check your emails from TBT and our website www.tbtny.org on a regular basis for updated information. Please contact Kathy in the Temple office at 631-643-1200 x310 with any questions or concerns.

We look forward to “seeing” you at High Holiday Services.  We hope that this holiday time encourages you to get involved in our community in a meaningful way.  We would like to wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year!  

Warm Regards,
Rabbi Susie Heneson Moskowitz
Cantor Sarene Appelbaum
Rabbi Rachel Wiesenberg 
Rabbi Marc A Gellman
Vanessa Newman, President
