NORTHERN HILLS SYNAGOGUE

HIGH HOLIDAY SCHEDULE 2018

The High Holidays begin this year on Sunday evening, September 9, 2018. As we welcome Rabbi Noah Ferro as our Synagogue's rabbi, we hope our High Holiday services provide you with an invigorating, enjoyable and meaningful experience.

Highlights include:

  • Rabbi Julie Schwartz, newly appointed Associate Dean of HebrewUnion College in Cincinnati and the College's Certified Supervisor of Clinical Pastoral Education, will present the program before the Selichot service on Saturday, September 1, at 7:30 p.m.

  • Rabbi Ferro will preside and give the divrei Torah at the services that take place in the Roth Sanctuary, our main sanctuary. The High Holiday service in the Roth Sanctuary will feature the streamlined timeline we introduced last year (see the service schedule for the details).

  • Rabbi Jonathan Perlman will lead a musical/meditative service on the second day of Rosh Hashanah.

  • There will be a study session between Mincha and Neilah on Yom Kippur afternoon. Justin Kirschner, the Associate Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, will serve as the presenter, and will lead a discussion on "Actualizing our Values: The Time is Now." Justin will engage us in a review of a JCRC initiative in which we can play a role.

PROJECT ISAIAH

Our teens who participate in USY conduct our part in the city-wide Kol Nidre food collection project, Project Isaiah. Our teens' USY chapter is headquartered at Adath Israel Synagogue, which is also the collection point for the project. You have two options to donate a bag of non- perishable food items. You may bring your donations with you when you come to our Kol Nidre service and we will arrange to transport them to the collection point. You may also bring them directly to Adath Israel.

TRANSPORTATION

If you require transportation assistance, please contact the synagogue office at (513) 931-6038.

PARKING

Please use the overflow parking area (the grass-covered area to the right of the main driveway) if the paved area is full or if you prefer that area. Please avoid the overflow area if it has been cordoned off.

NEILAH - PERSONAL MOMENT OF REFLECTION AND PRAYER

During the Neilah service, congregants will be given the opportunity to stand before the ark for a moment of silent reflection and prayer. That practice is becoming more common, and many people find it very meaningful.

SHOFAR CHOIR

At the end of the Neilah service, everyone who has a shofar is invited to join in the final tekiah gedolah.

BABYSITTING

Babysitting will be available on the following days and times:

Rosh Hashanah, First Day, Monday, September 10, 9:30 am - 1:30 pm.

A SYNAGOGUE WELCOMING TO ALL

At our High Holiday services, a large number of people, of all ages and life situations, join in congregational worship. We want everyone to have a meaningful holiday worship experience. Northern Hills Synagogue makes a great effort to be accessible to all. If we are to be truly welcoming, then every one of us must be considerate of the feelings and concerns of other worshippers. Please contact the Synagogue office for more information about hearing assistance devices, our wheelchair accessible bimah, and other accommodations.

HIGH HOLIDAY HOSPITALITY AND THE "TRAVELING SHOFAR"

A significant part of the Holiday experience is sharing it with other people. Northern Hills Synagogue likes to think of itself as a warm and welcoming congregation. If you are able to, please invite some people, in particular, people outside your usual circle of friends and relatives, to some of your Holiday meals. To volunteer your home or to request hospitality, please contact the Synagogue office.

If you will be unable to attend Rosh Hashanah services at the synagogue and would like to hear the shofar, please contact the Synagogue office, and we shall try to arrange to have someone come to you with the shofar.

BRING A FRIEND

We do many good things at Northern Hills Synagogue, and we would like more people to know about them. If you know people who might be interested in our Holiday services or our synagogue, especially those not affiliated with any congregation, bring them with you to services. If you give the office the names of those whom you have invited, we can send them our High Holiday information.
