High Holy Days FAQ's

Parking

To ensure safety, please cooperate with the parking attendants provided by Mapco Parking. Parking for the disabled is clearly marked. Please be considerate of those who require special parking.

 

Security

Only the South (F), West (I) and Atrium (L) entrances will be open.

 

Are there ways to hear better?

The Sanctuary sound system includes a "loop" that can be accessed by switching hearing aids to the "T" position. Be sure to sit in the Sanctuary and not in the Foyer or Wolk Family Center areas. Sign language interpreters are located on the right side of the Bimah (as you face it).

 

Prayer Books

TBK is now using the new Reform High Holy Day Prayer book, Mishkan HaNefesh. This book is printed in two volumes: one with a gold cover for Rosh HaShana and one with a silver cover for Yom Kippur. Large print prayer books are available from an usher. We have copies of this book for you to borrow if you wish to follow along with the services from home.

To support the change to the new books and to dedicate a set of prayer books in memory or in honor of people of your choice, click here.

 

Kippot & Tallitot

The wearing of Kippot and Tallitot (prayer shawls) is optional at Temple B'rith Kodesh. Tallitot are only worn at daytime services and the evening of Kol Nidre service. There are a limited number of Tallitot available at the entrances to the Sanctuary; it is best to bring your own.

Parashat Vayera
November 15, 2019

In this Torah portion, three guests arrive at Abraham and Sarah’s tent. They inform Abraham that God will give the elderly Sarah a child. The prophesy comes true, and they name their son Isaac. God informs Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah will be destroyed, though Abraham attempts to convince God otherwise. God tells Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. Abraham obliges but is told that it was a test of faith and offers a ram to sacrifice instead.
