High Holidays 5783/2022

 

Welcome to another year at Beth Tikvah Synagogue. This year, our egalitarian, warm, spiritual, and meaningful High Holiday services will be in person at Cyprian Keyes Golf Club in Boylston, MA. They will also be offered via zoom  and Facebook Live Stream. 

 

It is important that you register to join us this year so that you receive any important updates.  In addition, we need to know who will be attending in person for security reasons. When you register, you will be able to select attendance via zoom or in person. That selection is for planning purposes only.  Everyone who registers will receive the zoom link and will be on the attendance list. Please click HERE to register.

At Beth Tikvah Synagogue we no longer charge set dues rates for membership. Our pledge based system, called Terumah, is a "free-will" offering, not a required one. Your Terumah is your membership pledge, an annual voluntary financial commitment that is used for our operating budget. If you are interested in joining the Beth Tikvah family go to www.bethtikvahsynagogue.org/join-us.html for more information.
 

Please call 508-616-9037, or email HighHolidays@BethTikvahSynagogue.org, if you have any questions. Come join our inviting, joyful and spirited community for the High Holidays!

High Holiday Prayerbooks (Machzor)

 

We will be distributing the High Holiday Prayerbooks on Sunday September 11 and September 18 from 9:30 - 11:30 AM at the Beth Tikvah community center, 30 Oak St. Westborough. 

Everyone will need to pick up Prayerbooks, whether attending in person or via zoom. This serves two purposes. First, it allows you the flexibility of deciding that day whether or not to attend in person, you will have the prayerbook. Second, we don't have to worry about taking large boxes of books back and forth or finding a safe place to store them all.


Those of you attending services in person will be responsible for bringing these prayerbooks with you and returning them to the Beth Tikvah Community Center at a date to be determined.

Children's Services

 A Children's Service will be held in person at Cyprian Keyes Golf Club on the first day of Rosh Hasahana and on Yom Kippur. All children between the ages of 6 and 12 are welcome to attend. The Children's service will begin at approximately 10:30  AM.  When the Torah is processed around the congregation, that is the signal for the children that their service will begin. When the Children's Service ends,  children will return to their parents. Please indicate on the registration form whether or not your child(ren) will be attending these services.

Unfortunately, we do not have a space for babysitting this year.  

Memorial Book

It is traditional to remember our loved ones during the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur.  Beth Tikvah Synagogue is again preparing a Memorial Booklet for the Yom Kippur Yizkor service as a fundraiser for the synagogue. The cost is $18 per name or $250 for a whole page.

If you would like your loved one's names included in this year's Memorial Booklet, please fill out and submit this FORM and make your payment on-line by Thursday September 9. Beth Tikvah members who are logged into the system, may have the payment billed to their account. 

Alternatively, you can fill out and mail this form with a check made out to Beth Tikvah Synagogue Memo: Yizkor Book and sent by September 29 to:
