AITZ CHAIM COMMUNITY ROSH HASHANAH AND YOM KIPPUR SERVICES SCHEDULE

Because of the covid pandemic, Aitz Chaim will not be holding indoor services for High Holy days this year. Our only in person gathering will be for Tashlich at Giant Springs, 5401 18th Ave. N., at 1:30pm Saturday, September 19. We will also have a zoom Yizkor service on Yom Kippur led by Rabbi Ruz at 5pm Monday, September 28. We are still trying to see if we can offer some online learning with Rabbi Ruz and will send an update if that is scheduled.

We encourage our members to take advantage of the online services at Congregation Beth Shalom in Bozeman. They will be streaming High Holy Day services this year from the Ellen Theater. Sign up here or e-mail me at president@aitzchaim.com.
Links for Yom Kippur services will be sent a few days in advance for those services.

Services in Bozeman will be led by Rabbi Mark Kula, accompanied by a cantorial soloist and a pianist.
There will be a way to chat and comment. They use the same machzor we do: Mishkan Hanefesh: Machzor For The Days of Awe. They will have that visible on the screen so you can follow along. (If you want to use an actual book, contact Helen Cherry by phone at (406) 727-2572 or (406) 868-4385 to make arrangements to pick them up. We have a few available to check out).

The president of the Bozeman community wanted to emphasize that there is no charge for these online services. However, their community will incur additional expenses to provide them so donations will be welcome. You can donate here or by mailing a check to Congregation Beth Shalom, 2010 W.Koch St, Bozeman, MT, 59718.

Here is the schedule including both Bozeman and Great Falls offerings:

Rosh Hashanah Congregation Beth Shalom online services

  • Erev Rosh Hashanah Friday September 18 at 6pm
  • Rosh Hashanah Morning Saturday September 19 at 10am
  • Aitz Chaim Great Falls Hebrew Community Tashlich

  • We encourage our community to join our zoom Yizkor as we will be reciting our community’s list. Bozeman will be having their own zoom meeting for their community’s Yizkor also at 5pm. They will be back to the online service at 5:45 for Ne’ilah – probably a little more formal than ours, if you prefer that option.

    Let me know if you have any questions: president@aitzchaim.com
