22 Tishrei – 26 Tishrei Schedule of Services (Extended Version)

Leave a comment

After a 2 week hiatus, I’m back with information about this week’s services.

Wednesday, October 15               Hoshanah Rabbah

7:30 a.m.         Shacharit              Chapel

Join us for the final day to take up the lulav and etrog this year, and be part of our 7 processions around the Chapel.  We beat the aravah branches on the ground to show our humility before G-d, and then cast them away to mark the end of the Days of Judgment.  This is the culmination of the period of teshuvah that began at the beginning of Elul, so make the most of this opportunity!

6:00 p.m.        Mincha / Ma’ariv            Chapel

Thursday, October 16             Shemini Atzeret

9:00 a.m.       Shacharit                           Sanctuary

Yizkor prayers will immediately follow the Rabbi’s sermon

6:00 p.m.         Mincha / Ma’ariv           Chapel

6:30 p.m.         Simchat Torah Hakafot            TBD

Join us for a festive evening of marching, dancing, and singing with the Torah!

Friday, October 17                    Simchat Torah

9:00 a.m.         Shacharit                      Sanctuary

Join us for a festive morning of marching, dancing, and singing with the Torah!  Everyone, no matter their age, receives an aliyah during the Torah reading, so bring the entire family!  After your aliyah, partake of Marvin’s fabulous Simchat Torah kiddush.  Then come back for Musaf and try to guess this year’s musical theme prepared by Hazzan Grosss.

6:00 p.m.         Mincha / Ma’ariv        Chapel    (Our regular time as we go from Yom Tov to Shabbat)

Saturday, October 18

9:00 a.m.           Shabbat Services                         Sanctuary

Remember – please refrain from turning on your cell phones in the Synagogue on Shabbat and Yom Tov.

Pease help us with our weekday and Saturday evening  minyanim.  In the summer, Saturday evening services begin at 9:00 p.m. almost every week, and we can use a great deal of assistance in order to provide a minyan for those saying Kaddish.  If you have no plans on a particular Saturday evening, please join us for services (and for the meal an hour earlier).

Morning services begin at 7:30 a.m., and we serve breakfast following services; Afternoon services begin at 6:00 p.m.  Saturday evening (end of Shabbat) services vary according to sunset (see time in the calender above this paragraph).

There are upcoming opportunities to read Haftarah on a Shabbat. The next open Shabbat is November 8 (Parashat Vayera).   In addition, with our move to a triennial reading cycle, shorter readings are available many weeks for those who would like to read Torah.  If you are interested in a particular date, please contact me.

Check out other pages on the blog for information about tefilah.  New pages have been posted, including recordings of both the weekday Mincha and Ma’ariv services.

Would you like to sponsor weekday breakfast  Seudah Shelishit in the future?  Call Denise in the synagogue office to inquire about available dates.

Service news for this week

Leave a comment

Here is some useful information relating to this week’s services.

1.  We WILL hold Mincha / Ma’ariv services here on Saturday 9/20.  Services will begin at 7:00 p.m. and last for their typical hour.  There will not, however, be a seudah this week.

Previously, we announced that there would be no service here in light of the community service at Shaarey Tzedek that will culminate in Selichot prayers.  However, we recognize there there are many congregants who would prefer to attend services here for various reasons.  Selichot is schedule to begin at the community service at 10:00 p.m., so those who want to attend that service as well will have ample time to travel to Southfield from Adat Shalom.

We encourage everyone to attend the Selichot services this Shabbat, whether you attend Mincha and Ma’ariv at Adat Shalom first, or the entire program at Shaarey Tezdek.

 

2.  My information is that reconstruction of the parking lots and driveways will resume this week, so they are completed before the High Holy Days services.  Please be careful and observant when entering the synagogue grounds.

 

3.  Services will continue to be held in the Glass Room while the Chapel’s renovation is completed this week.

 

4.  School is back in session, so please remember to not park in any of the reserved parking places in either the morning or the evening.

 

5.  As a reminder, when you call the synagogue to schedule a sponsored breakfast or seudah, please include the number of guests that will attend.  This helps us ensure appropriate seating and amounts of food.

 

I look forward to seeing everyone during the week.
