We Wish You a Happy, Healthy, and
Sweet New Year!

We wish you and your loved ones a year filled with health, happiness, and security. Beginning with our Selichot service, followed by Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, Sukkot services, and finally Simchat Torah services and celebration, each is an opportunity to re-connect to our community, God, and your own soul. 

We were pleased to welcome Rabbi Edward Bernstein as our Rabbi for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur this year. (Learn more about Rabbi Bernstein in the announcement email.)

Greeting from Rabbi Bernstein

Shalom, Congregation Beth Emeth! I’m so excited to be with you to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as we begin the New Year 5782. 
 
During this High Holiday season, each one of us, I hope, will take the opportunity for personal introspection as we reflect on how we can bring about positive change in our personal lives and relationships. At the same time, we arrive at this season after a year and a half of great disruption. We’re trying to figure out how to bring out the best in our community when we need it the most. During our time together, I look forward to exploring with you how we can more effectively take care of ourselves, be present for one another and be aware of and responsive to the needs of our broader community. 
 
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve Congregation Beth Emeth for the High Holidays. Whether you will participate in person or online, I thank you for helping to create a vibrant Beth Emeth community, and I look forward to starting the new year on a good note with all of you. 
 
Shabbat Shalom and L’Shanah Tovah,
Rabbi Ed Bernstein

L'Shanah Tova Tikatevu v’Techataymu!
