Shana Tova!

Below you will find your Yom Kippur Seat Assignment (if applicable), Yom Kippur Schedule (including an additional Zoom Hataras Nedarim), and some Sukkos information. 

  • If you ordered a Lulav with OZ, please check your email for distribution information. If you did not order with OZ, do not take a Lulav from the Shul - please patronize West Side Judaica.
  • This year, like last, we will offer 'Quick Kiddushes' through out Sukkos Yom Tov days for members and guests to make a 'Leshev (not Linger)' followed by table reservations (bring your own food) - please RSVP at

If you registered for Yom Kippur Services, your seat assignment(s) will be listed here:

  • Some seat assignments may have changed from Rosh Hashana
  • If you do not see an assignment or think there is a mistake, please do not hesitate to contact us
  • Signage will also be placed at the entrances of the Main Shul and with the Gabbaim at each Minyan.
  • Due to demand, we will host a participant-led Zoom Hataras Nedarim at 5:00pm - click here for link:
  • While the 8:00am Sukkah Minyan has closed out, those who would want more distancing with an expedited service are welcome to join the Vasikin Minyan at 6:15am. The Main Minyan will start at 9:20am. Both the Sukkah and Vasikin minyan will start at 'Nishmas.'
  • Please remember that due to both an increase of the number of attendees and in the number of hours spent in shul, all participants are required to wear masks in all minyanim. 
  • Do not forget to register your children for the Yom Kippur Youth Program - This is not a 'drop-off' program - parents must have seats reserved at OZ.
  • It's not too late to join the Kol Nidrei Appeal or RSVP for Seats, please do so now at!

On this Yom Kippur Eve, we ask not only for your commitment, but also for your forgiveness. A synagogue office is a busy one, especially preceding the High Holidays. If we dropped a call, missed a letter, or accidentally looked over any other matter, please take to heart that these mistakes were not intentional. Indeed, we are always looking to improve and welcome constructive suggestions and feedback.

Wishing you a Shana Tova!

Chad Hopkovitz - Executive Director
