Lulav & Etrog:
The Torah instructs us to take four species in hand to celebrate Sukkot – willow, palm, myrtle and citron. The first three are bound together and are collectively called a Lulav. The citron, or Etrog, is a sweet-smelling citrus fruit grown in Israel. The Lulav and Etrog are waved in the synagogue and in the sukkah. Lulav and Etrog sets are available for purchase HERE or by calling the Temple office.

Soulful High Holiday 5783/2022 Information

Led by Rabbi Alan Flam and Judy Kaye, Soulful Services encourage people to
spiritually stretch – in prayer and in teshuva work (reflection). We slow down the
traditional pace of prayer and focus on key prayers and themes of the Holy Days.
Soulful prayer is a blend of traditional davening, silence, chant, movement and
poetry so that our whole selves – mind, body, breath and heart – can be engaged
in prayer. Drumming and guitar will accompany us in creating a joyous and
reflective Soulful community.

Yom Kippur Evening
(6:00 PM) The Evening Service - will include Kol Nidre. It will be a reflective service encouraging us to explore “the land of our souls.”

Yom Kippur Day
(9:30 AM) Yom Kippur Morning Service - will be similar to Rosh Hashanah
(11 AM) Soulful Torah Service - will feature an alternative Torah reading from Leviticus 19,
selections from Isaiah’s challenging Haftorah and the Yizkor Service.
(12:15 PM) The Soulful Musaf - will focus on the Unataneh Tokef prayer, reflections on sacrifice
and forgiveness and Selichot prayers.
(4:30 PM) Chanting and Meditation - led by Bruce Phillips
(6:00 PM) Neilah (Concluding) - is a climactic and joyous conclusion to our Yom Kippur prayers. Final Shofar blast is at 7:01 PM
