Elul Emails 2022/5782

On August 28, we enter the Hebrew month of Elul, the month preceding the High Holy Days.

During our preparations for the High Holy Days we are meant to take time to reflect on the year that has past and examine the ways we can better fulfill our obligations to our families, community and God in the year to come. We invite you to sign up for a daily email from the Temple to help guide you through your process of reflection. Each day you will receive a brief, spiritually sustaining email reflecting various High Holy Day themes.

Book of Remembrance

Letters regarding the 2022/5783 Book of Remembrance have been mailed. On-line submissions can be made here.

Responses to be included are required by August 30. If you have any questions, please email gro.asle-hteb@htide.

Greeters Needed

We are looking for volunteers to help us greet members and guests before services.

If interested, you can sign up here.
Contact Dollie Closna if you have any questions at 210-733-9135 ext. 126 or gro.asle-hteb@eillod.

HHD Childcare

We are pleased to resume complementary childcare during High Holy Day services. Children aged 6 weeks to 7 years may participate in childcare activities and will be assigned to groups based on age.  

To participate, children must be registered by Friday, September 16  and can be done here or call Dollie Closna at 210-733-9135 ext. 126 or email gro.asle-hteb@eillod 

Because we hire our childcare staff in advance and will be hiring based on specific child/staff ratios for each age group, last minute additions will not be permitted. The child/staff ratio is for the safety and security of the children and will be strictly enforced. 

COVID19 continues to be recorded at high levels. Therefore, our COVID Task Force recommends the following protocols:  

• While masks are highly recommended, they are no longer required. As you decide whether or not to wear a mask, please consider the health and comfort of fellow congregants who may be around you.

• Immunizations and updated boosters are also highly recommended.

 If you are feeling unwell, please choose to stay home and join us through livestreaming.
