2022 High Holidays Registration

Welcome!
Members: if you are logged into the ShulCloud Member Portal, your personal information should populate some of these fields automatically. If these fields are empty, please log into your ShulCloud Member Portal account to continue. The login button is in the top-right corner of this page.
You can still submit this form without being logged in but please note that if there are any amounts owed, the only payment option will be by credit card.

Non-members, please fill out this form with your information.


Congregation Etz Hayim looks forward to welcoming you for this year’s High Holidays services!
 
Detailed information about services is available on our High Holiday FAQ. Information on CEH health and safety protocols is available on our reopening updates page and will be updated on an ongoing basis.

High Holiday tickets are included free of charge in all CEH memberships; there is no member ticket fee. However, registration is mandatory for members and non-members for in-person services.

To allow us to best tailor our services, and to print tickets for those attending in-person, please use the form below to register for services for your entire member unit (e.g., a family should complete this form only once, entering each family member's name in the appropriate section below). We understand that your entire family may not plan to attend each service and that your plans for who is able to attend may change, but unit-based pre-registration allows us to best accommodate all of our members and non-member visitors.

Non-members are welcome, either in-person or online! Tickets for non-members are $180/person (ages13 and above) and include all Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. This registration form is for both, members and non-members.
Please contact office@etzhayim.net for college and military discounts.

Children are an important part of the CEH community. We are delighted to provide High Holidays services and programming for youth ages 18 months through B-Mitzvah age.

Suggested donation for children’s services and programming is $36 for either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur, $54 for both. Please see the FAQ page for more information.

Youth Services and Programming

This year we are offering multiple educational activities and services for our kids and teens. We believe that they deserve a service crafted to their age and diverse programming to include everyone, teaching our values and holiday traditions. Parents are welcome to join their children for the services listed below.
This year's activities have special themes that will guide the experience:
Rosh Hashanah:
How Are You Peeling? Exploring Fruits & Feelings
Yom Kippur: Sensory Path: Finding Meaningful Connections Through Our Senses
 
Rosh Hashanah I: Tuesday, September 26th
Rosh Hashanah II: Wednesday, September 27th
Yom Kippur: Thursday, October 5th


All kids are welcome to join us from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
The times listed below are the time when services will start.
Before and after services, multiple educational activities will take place.

 
Mini-Minyan: 18 Months – 2nd Grade – 10:00 AM
Sing-Along and Snack – 10:45 AM
Minyan Tzair (Youth Minyan): 3rd – B-Mitzvah – 11:15 AM

Child Care

We are very excited to create multiple educational activities and services for our kids and teens (18 Months B-Mitzvah age) on both mornings of Rosh Hashanah and the morning of Yom Kippur from 9:30 AM-12:30 PM.
We know that some families would be interested in child care during the evening services (Erev Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidrei, and Neilah) as well.

Before we set up any child care option for these services, we would like to hear from you.
Please let us know below your interest in this option and if you have any suggestions.
We will be in touch after Labor Day with the families who are interested.

Zoom Access

We understand that not everyone is ready or able to join us for in-person services this year. We are planning our services to be inclusive and meaningful to those joining us online as well.

All of the services listed below will be broadcast over Zoom.  Use the checkboxes below to designate the services in which any part of your family unit is interested in participating.  For example, if any members of your family are interested in our online Kol Nidrei service, check the corresponding box in this section. 

 

Participation Prioritization

We are grateful to be able to daven (pray) together again for the High Holidays, and we want to do so in a way that keeps everyone safe as we enter the new year. Your pre-registration allows CEH to understand the demand for in-person services and whether this demand exceeds the safe capacity of our sanctuary.

Please use the fields below to indicate the services you most want to attend in person, so that if (and only if) we're projected to be over-capacity we can best assign you to your highest priority services.

If we need to limit our in-person participation based on demand or changes in current COVID-19 protocols, we will e-mail you by early September. Information on CEH health and safety protocols is available
HERE and will be updated on an ongoing basis.
 

Tashlich

We're excited to offer an innovative, family-friendly, outdoor Tashlich service that will be held streamside. Great for families with kids and those who are looking for a unique New Year’s service.

Tashlich is an experience unique to this time of the year, when we ritually let go of things we don’t want to carry with us into the next year. This service will be filled with songs and opportunities for meditation, reflection and singing.

Tashlich will be on September 26th at 5:30 PM by the Lubber Run Amphitheater, 200 N Columbus St.

Yizkor Book Participation

Having a name memorialized in a Yizkor Book is a beautiful way to honor our loved ones. While they are no longer with us in the physical realm we still hold their memories close to our hearts every day and in particular this time of the year.

The CEH Yizkor Book contains the English names and Hebrew memorial dates (if available) of our departed relatives and friends and is available at our Congregation’s Yizkor services four times a year: beginning on Yom Kippur, Shmini Atzeret (end of Sukkot), Pesach, and Shavuot.

This year's Yizkor Book will contain poems, songs, and texts to help us process our grief and sadness and also to help us connect with joyful memories and the legacy left to us by our ancestors, friends, and family.
It is our tradition to offer Tzedakah in memory of our loved ones, sharing their names with the community and assisting
the Congregation at the same time.

For each name you want to be memorialized, $18 will be added to your High Holidays contribution.

Please select on the menu below how you would like to participate in our Yizkor Book this year.


Once you select it, another menu will appear so you can add the information requested and a link with last year's Yizkor Book will appear, so you can see our booklet and have access to the information you provided last year.
Please enter first name
Deceased Last Name
Do you know the date of death?
please enter date of death
please enter date of death
Date of Death (English)
Hebrew Day of Month

Please check the box if you'd like to be reminded annually of upcoming yahrzeit.

Names from last year's Yizkor book can be found here.  

Contribute to our Yom Kippur Appeal

“One should not appear before God empty-handed, but each one with their own gift, according to the blessing that God has bestowed upon you” Deut. 16:16-17

It is only through the generosity of our members that we are able to sustain our community. Your contribution will make it possible to ensure the continuity of our activities and reach even more people in our area with high-quality programming and meaningful relationships.

We are seeking 100% participation in our Yom Kippur Appeal, to have our whole community involved in creating our sacred space at whatever level you feel is meaningful to you and the community.


Thanks to a generous group of anonymous donors, any increase over your pledge last year will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $10,000. First-time pledges will be double matched!

It is a tradition to contribute with multiples of 18, which is the numeric value of the word chai (life).
90 - 180 - 270 - 360 - 540 - 1080 - 1800 - 3600 - 5400

Todah Rabah! Thank you!

Thank You For Registering
