5784 High Holidays 



Our staff, leadership and volunteers have been working diligently to provide our members and guests an inclusive, welcoming and warm environment and this year is no exception as we look forward to sharing the High Holy Days services with our Rumson Jewish Center at Congregation B’nai Israel family! We are delighted to hold in-person services in our Sanctuary, in addition to Live-streaming options.  

We are honored to have Hazzan Ellen Miller Arad join Rabbi Sagal on the Bimah leading our High Holy Days services.  Some of you have already had the pleasure of meeting Hazzan Ellen at our Shabbat at the Shore Event.  We look forward to the rest of you meeting Hazzan Ellen.

 Those who have High Holy Days tickets included as a part of their membership will automatically be added to our check-in list. Our Gan families are not charged to attend services. Associate and Affiliate members will be charged for their tickets as is customary when they register. Tickets for Gan families, Associate and Affiliate members and extended family are available using the enclosed ticket form or registering online at our website.  If family members are visiting who belong to a synagogue elsewhere, they may attend at no charge. Contact the main office.

All services in our Sanctuary can be accessed through a link on our website or can be viewed on Facebook Live at the Rumson Jewish Center at Congregation B’nai Israel  page at no charge.

Our in-person, Family Together Service will be held at 2:30pm on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur day in our Sanctuary – please check your email so you can register yourselves for this fun and interactive service.

We are excited to announce our newest program. “PRAY-GROUND” this special holiday themed program perfect for children ages 2-6 and their parents. It will take place on our playground (in the back of our building) and will be led by our Gan Director Suzanne Wycoff. In the event of inclement weather we will meet in our gym. This program will be held at 9:00 am on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur day.

For those attending by Livestream, there will be electronic access to the Machzor, or you may borrow a hard copy of the Lev Shalom Machzor by contacting the synagogue office. The Memorial Book for Yizkor is available in pdf format.
