How will I get my High Holiday Tickets or Streaming Access Code?
Tickets for attending in–person services, and containing the streaming access code, will be mailed the week of August 16 to those members with a current membership at Congregation Beth Torah and the payment of at least 20% of their 2021/2022 dues commitment, unless other arrangements have been made with the Treasurer.treasurer@congregationbethtorah.org to make arrangements. Need to order tickets? Scroll down this page to the order form.
 
Will childcare be available?
Please note that a childcare reservation must be made and paid for in advance. Walk–ins will not be accepted.
 
 
How do I order tickets for adult children, friends, or family?
This form will close at 4:30 PM Friday, September 3
 
 
Will there be Kever Avot?
On September 5, Kever Avot will take place at 10:45 AM at Restland and noon at Sparkman.
 
Will masks be required in the synagogue?
Based on current conditions, masks are required while in the Synagogue. We will advise you of any changes via email as soon as possible.
 
What changes are being made for services?
As we are expecting some of our congregants to participate via streaming, and to minimize time spent together indoors in the sanctuary, therefore our services will be a little shorter than usual.  There will not be an afternoon (Mincha) service on Yom Kippur, and adult educational programming will be conducted via Zoom.
 
Will there be services and programs for children and teens?
For the safety of our children and the congregant volunteers who generally serve as teachers during the High Holidays, the following programs are being offered this year: outdoor Tashlich, Shofar Blowing, and Havdallah. In addition, children are welcome to attend in person Tot Service, Junior Congregation, or Main Sanctuary services. Streaming access for all services will be available on the CBT website.
 
When, where, and what is going to occur for Taschlich and Shofar Service?
Rosh Hashana Day 1
Approximately 1:00 PM, following morning services, we will have Taschlich at Prairie Creek Park. Please bring lettuce or rice paper instead of bread to protect the health and safety of the ducks and turtles in the creek. If you would like, please bring a picnic lunch as we enjoy the outdoors (weather permitting). Rabbi Z will engage the children with a story.
 
At 6:30 PM we will meet in the CBT parking lot for an outdoor shofar service (weather permitting).
 
Are we having Yoga and Meditation with Rabbi Z as in prior years?
At 6:00 PM on Yom Kippur, prior to Neilah, Rabbi Z will lead a Yoga session followed at 6:30 PM by a meditation session, both in the Multi–Purpose Room.  Following Neilah, we will celebrate Havdallah (outdoors–weather permitting).
 
 
Are we having an Adult Education Program like in prior years?
At 4:00 PM on Yom Kippur, Dr. John Wills will be providing a discussion "Looking at the Story of Jonah" on why we read this text and what does it have to teach us today. Click here for link
