**Please note that all plans are dependent on being able to provide a safe in-person experience. Policies may change on the recommendation of the medical community or the CSR Re-Opening/Covid Taskforce.**
High Holy Day Worship/Programming
We will again offer a Family Worship experience during Rosh Hashanah on September 7 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Yom Kippur on September 16 from 2:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m., designed for families with children in grades 3-6. This engaging and musical service will be led by Rabbinic Intern Gabe Miner and Director of Youth Engagement, Leah Beck, with participation by Rabbi Daniel Gropper and Cantor Melanie Cooperman.
Yizkor Memory Book & Updated Memory Information
A digital Memorial Book will be available online prior to the Yizkor Memorial Service on Yom Kippur afternoon. Additional information pertaining to the Memory Book can be found here. If you have purchased a plaque, the name of the deceased will be automatically listed in the Memory Book. We will also offer a printed version upon request.
Second Day Rosh Hashanah
On Septemner 8, we will offer an outdoor “Different Kind of Service” from 10:00 am – 11:30 a.m. (weather permitting). Meet at the parking lot of Edith Read Natural Park and Wildlife Sanctuary in Rye. Please note: given the topography, this experience is not appropriate for those with mobility issues. Please carpool as parking is limited. Advance registration, masks and physical distancing are required. Space is limited.
This year we will need to know your plans for each service in advance, to ensure adequate seating for all. Please respond with your choice of service as soon as possible, as the holy days are early this year and we want to accommodate your requests as best as we can. Seating at CSR will be available for member families, their parents and spouses/partners of adult children. We will offer livestreaming to those we are unable to accommodate in-person.
1. Sign Up for In-person
2. Name Badge request for in-person services
NOTE: Name Badges will be mailed once all past commitments, half of your 2021-2022 annual commitment and all religious school fees have been paid and/or a payment plan has been set up with the synagogue. Please submit annual payments by August 15, 2021 in order to receive your name badges in advance of Rosh Hashanah. Please know that finances should not be a barrier to your affiliating with CSR. If you have questions, contact Glynis Conyer, Executive Director, at (914) 967-6262 x222 or email@example.com.
For security reasons, all those attending High Holy Day services will be asked to show their name badges, so it is essential to bring them with you to each service. Every individual should wear their own name badge. If you do not have your name badge, you may be asked to present identification. If you are carrying a large package, bag, or diaper bag, it may be subject to a search.
There will be security officers to assist with security at CSR. These security procedures are in place to ensure the safety of all who worship with us during the Days of Awe.
