Next Tuesday, September 15, from 3 pm – 6:30 pm, drop by Rabbi Scott and Natalie’s home for Driveway Judaism.  Rabbi Scott will be waiting for you in his driveway, for you and yours to get video-ed:

  • Chanting the Torah blessings and/or
  • Singing the Havdalah blessings and/or
  • Wishing our community “Shanah Tovah u’metukah” (“Happy and Sweet New Year!”  

Links to practice videos and text are below.

Why?  Because we want YOU in our Livestream High Holy Days services!  To sign up, email Rabbi Scott to let him know about when to expect you and for his address.

This is going to be so much fun for you and for Rabbi Scott! He misses you and while you’ll be safely distanced, it’s always good to see each other in person. 

You can of course do these video recordings yourselves, but this way, you don’t have to worry about set up, you have the Rabbi there as your tutor/coach and he’ll send you home with some sweet wishes for a wonderful new year! 

The Torah blessings are those that are chanted before and after each Torah reading.  A “How-to-Chant-the-Torah-Blessings” video is available on our Shma Koleinu You Tube channel.  Just click here.

The Havdalah blessings over wine/graph juice, spices, light and the distinction between the “holy” and the “everyday,” will mark the separation between the end of the High Holy Days and the rest of the year.  A “How-to-Chant-the-Havdalah-Blessings” video is available on our Shma Koleinu You Tube channel.  Click here for a link to the video

And “Shanah Tovah u’metukah” means “We wish you a good and sweet year!”  It is pronounced, “Shaw-naw toe-vah oo-me-too-kaw.”
