A Message from The High Holiday Task Force

Dear WJC Family,

As the month of May flies by, we know that WJC members are starting to think about the High Holiday season. This year the High Holidays are “early” with Erev Rosh HaShanah falling on Labor Day. We wanted to write and let you know that a High Holiday Task Force comprised of representatives from many different age groups and constituencies at WJC is actively working on plans. Expect to hear regular updates over the coming weeks as our plans evolve.

These plans will reflect guidance from our COVID-19 Task Force to ensure we are up-to-speed on the latest protective protocols. We are optimistic that we can create a rich array of programming geared to a variety of interests and age groups – and include opportunities for members to gather in person if they desire.

New this year, there will be large tents set up on our property to accommodate gatherings outside as well as within the building.

We plan to have multiple services taking place both in the sanctuary/reception room and outside in the tents (with flaps kept up). Registration will be required for all attendees (for space capacity reasons). As of now, all services will have social distancing and require masks regardless of the location. We also plan to continue multi-access opportunities (virtual and in-person) for the services in the main sanctuary.

More details will follow but please don’t hesitate to share concerns, suggestions or questions about holiday plans; send them to us by email at holidays@wjcenter.org or contact the task force chairs Susan Miller at susansm822@gmail.com or Harold Treiber at Harold.Treiber@gmail.com.

We look forward to finding ways to bring in the New Year of 5782 that are safe, meaningful, and inclusive so stay tuned for more information.

Sending blessings,
The High Holiday Task Force
Your WJC Clergy
