Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services at the Middle School Atrium

Bennie Rabinowitz with Tikva Tova’s torah

Yomtov is still happening, even in this crazy year.

Please join the Tikva Tova congregation at the Herzlia Middle School Atrium for Covid-compliant Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur 2021 special short-services.

Each service is only 30 to 40 minutes, and seating will be socially distanced. On Rosh Hashana there will be shofar blasts, short pieces of the shul liturgy, and a mini-sermon.

Similarly on Yom Kippur, each service is 30 to 40 minutes, so please come on time. Those attending must conform to Covid regulations. All are welcome, no booking or notification needed.

In ritual and liturgical matters, Tikva Tova follows the orthodox normative practice, except that no distinction is made in status or participation between women and men.
