A Person Screams Out For What They Lack: A Discussion with Rabbi Yoav Ende
Join us for a discussion, during the break after Musaf, about the merits and drawbacks of crying out for the things in life that we lack. Rabbi Yoav Ende, The Executive Director of the Kibbutz Hannaton Education Center, will facilitate this discussion in the sanctuary after Musaf ends and prior to the beginning of Mincha. The conversation will use Israeli artist Meir Ariel's song צועק את שחסר לו "One Screams Out for What They Lack" as a textual starting point and raise themes of Yom Kippur.

COVID Precautions & Protocol

It is critical that you monitor how you and your children are feeling before coming to Beth El. If you do not feel well, or are experiencing Covid symtpoms, please stay home. Individuals ages five and above must be vaccinated against Covid 19; proof of vaccination is not required as we are now operating on an honor system. Masks are optional and we encourage those who feel more comfortable wearing a mask to do so. However, if you had Covid and have finished your period of isolation, you must wear a high quality, well fitting mask through day 10. If you have been exposed to someone with Covid, you must wear a high quality, well fitting mask for 10 days following the last date of exposure. Seating in the sanctuary is set in rows with adequate space between rows and aisles. Please be sensitive to those who are not comfortable sitting next to someone outside of their immediate household by first asking if it’s okay to sit next to them.



Limited Parking

In order to accommodate our outdoor tent service, parking will be limited. We strongly encourage you to park on a street within walking distance of Beth El, to walk from home if you are able, or to park in a friend’s driveway as to allow those with limited mobility to park in our parking lot. 

Dropoff access at the front of our building is available.

All parking spaces available in the front of Beth El will be reserved for those displaying a handicap sticker (first-come, first-served). 

The Wykagyl Shopping Center (CVS) is a privately owned lot, and you may be towed if you park there. 

PLEASE USE EXTRA CARE AND CAUTION WHEN DRIVING ON BETH EL PROPERTY AS THERE WILL BE MORE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THAN USUAL.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. 



Security

Your safety and security, along with preserving a healthy environment, are our priorities. We take extra precautions for the High Holidays and thank you in advance for your cooperation. Every family has been required to register for the High Holidays. You will receive a confirmation email just before the holidays that will serve as your ticket. Please print and bring this email with you and be prepared to show it to the security guards along with a Photo ID. Our security guards will be situated at the entrance of each service and throughout the property. Allow extra time to enter since security precautions may result in delays. Beth El reserves the right to check all bags. 

Please acquaint yourself with relevant exit signs and publicized evacuation routes, and be aware at all times of your surroundings and new features of our security infrastructure, including doors which lock from the inside and a strobe/siren alert system.
