L’Shanah Tovah! We are so pleased to invite you to join with our Congregation Shaare Emeth family to usher in the year 5778. During the High Holidays each year we gather with our families, friends and community to come together in prayer, study and celebration of a new year.
When we say Happy New Year this year, we will have much that is new for which to be grateful. We are, of course, concluding our “Shaare the Vision” Campaign that has renovated and renewed our facilities to better fulfill our congregational mission: “Congregation Shaare Emeth is a compassionate and inclusive community that makes Judaism relevant, meaningful and joyful.” We are thrilled to be able to welcome the new year together in our beautiful, newly renewed sanctuary, chapel, auditorium and more. We are excited to introduce our new High Holiday prayerbook, Mishkan HaNefesh, that will help us bring new meaning into our worship and prayer. Yet we know that it is our community – all of us – that makes us truly unique. Please join us with your presence, your voice and your special contribution as we celebrate and give thanks.
It is our tradition to extend the warmest possible “Welcome!” as we open our doors to all who wish to join us during the High Holidays and throughout the year. All members of the Congregation and all guests and visitors are welcome to join us for our services; no tickets are necessary. We are grateful to our members who do their part to support our mission through their generous contributions. We hope that visitors and guests will feel similarly inspired to join and support our community during the coming year; we welcome your generous support to make our work possible. We depend on the generosity, participation and energy of each member of our community.
Please use these High Holidays as a time of personal renewal and rededication – a time to bring more meaning to your life. We look forward to your becoming even more active in the community and life of Congregation Shaare Emeth during the coming year! We can’t wait to wish you “L’shanah Tovah” in person. We hope and pray that this will be a year of sweetness, joy and peace for all.
