Falmouth Jewish Congregation invites the public to participate virtually in this year’s High Holy Day services for Rosh Ha-Shanah and Yom Kippur. The congregation remains in virtual mode, which shifts this year’s worship to online viewing. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, are times for special liturgy and musical selections in our worship, for community gatherings around food and various rituals, and a period of self-assessment and seeking forgiveness as the cycle of the year ends and begins anew. Whether you are a Jew seeking worship and community or an inquiring individual from any background, we welcome you to join us. Our Rosh Ha-Shanah and Yom Kippur services, led by Rabbi Lieberman and Cantorial Soloist Sydney Roslin, will be pre-recorded by the production crew of Falmouth Community Television. Services will be broadcast on community-television cable channels for residents of the following towns: Falmouth, Barnstable, Yarmouth, Dennis, Harwich, Chatham, Mashpee, Wareham, Brewster, Eastham, Orleans, Truro, Wellfleet, Sandwich, Provincetown, Plymouth, Kingston, Duxbury, Pembroke and Bourne. Channels and schedules for the participating towns are listed on the Falmouth Jewish Congregation website (www.falmouthjewish.org). Please visit it for precise information about when services will be aired in the town where you will access them if viewing via community television. Services will also be streamed on the Internet on the websites of Falmouth Community Television (www.fctv.org), Falmouth Jewish Congregation and on FJC’s YouTube channel. Due to their virtual nature, our worship experiences this year will be pared back, affording us the opportunity to engage with core themes, passages and musical selections that we so closely associate with the High Holy Days but many components, of necessity, will be missing. We are pleased to report that one highlight of the Kol Nidre service (Yom Kippur evening) will be included - the playing of Bruch’s composition of Kol Nidre for cello and piano, performed by cellist Naomi Steckman and pianist Donald Enos.With the exception of the closing services on Yom Kippur afternoon, all services are expected to run between 60 and 90 minutes. The schedule of services is as follows. Please note that Jewish holidays begin at sundown and continue until sundown the following day, so the first service for each holiday is in the evening. Rosh Ha-Shanah Evening: Friday, September 18 Rosh Ha-Shanah Morning: Saturday, September 19 Kol Nidre (Evening Yom Kippur): Sunday, September 27 Yom Kippur Morning: Monday, September 28 Yom Kippur afternoon/ concluding services: Monday, September 28, You may access for free the Machzor (High Holy Day prayer book) of the Reform Movement, Mishkan HaNefesh, by using a flipbook that you can view on your computer, iPad, tablet or phone. This flipbook is available from CCAR Press (https://www.ccarnet.org/publications/hhd/). You can also purchase a digital copy for Kindle on Amazon. The Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur books of Mishkan HaNefesh are available for purchase. Falmouth Jewish Congregation welcomes everyone to these High Holy Day services and to its Reform congregation at 7 Hatchville Road in East Falmouth. Facilities are accessible to all. The congregation’s lively cultural and educational programming has also shifted to virtual mode.
