The High Holy Days with Rabbi Ariel Konstantyn, Gideon Shaw & TAIS Youth Choir with Child Star Matan Hadaya!

Due to the lockdown and limits placed on services by the Health Ministry, we will present a significantly abbreviated yet uplifting and inspiring service.

Here is what will transpire:

1.  Services will be held in the TAIS Shomron Garden and led by Rabbi Ariel Konstantyn, Gideon Shaw and Matan Hadaya.

2.  Seating will be in four capsules – 2 for men and 2 for women.  Advanced Registration and the submission of an online Health Declaration is a MUST.

To register: https://eventbuzz.co.il/lp/event/taismembership-hhd-5781

Health Declaration: https://forms.gle/jtH9M9uuF83gFkrL9

3.  We have invested in industrial fans and large umbrellas to keep everyone cool and shaded.

4.  We will be passing over (I know, wrong holiday :) non critical prayers based on a number of abridged service models.  We are aiming to finish between 11 and 11:30am.

5.  We will do a full 100 Shofar Blasts.  Will likely start at approx 9:30am (instead of the usual time at 11) so please plan accordingly.
6.  A light Apples and Honey Cake Kiddush will follow.
