About the High Holidays at Temple Isaiah

With the exception of a single service on Erev Rosh Hashanah, High Holiday congregational services are conducted in double services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to accommodate the needs of our members. Congregational services include children who are able to participate in the service; younger school-age children are invited to attend with their family the services conducted especially for them during the afternoon of the holidays. Childcare is provided for infants and preschoolers during the congregational morning services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

The High Holiday committee manages the logistical aspects of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, including ushering, aliyot assignment, childcare, special needs seating, parking, and police for traffic control. The goal of the committee is to make the High Holidays a comfortable experience for everyone. Over 80 volunteers are involved in making our worship experience the best it can be. We accommodate the crowds at our double services smoothly and safely. Our excellent childcare program at morning services is well run and vital to many Temple families.

As part of our commitment to ensure that all of our congregants are welcome and able to actively participate in our community, we reserve seats for families with wheelchairs or other special needs. For further information, contact the chairperson of the High Holiday Committee. 

In 2015, we began using a new machzor for the High Holidays, Mishkan HaNefesh. Learn more about Mishkan Hafefesh.
