L'Shanah Tovah

hhd imageWelcome to High Holy Day services at Beth Chaim. We invite you to join with us as we welcome in the new year, pause and reflect on what is meaningful in our lives, and look to have our names once more favorably inscribed in the book of life.

Below you will find a schedule of services. We hope to see as many of you as possible. Please note that RSVP is required to attend the in-person hybrid services. All Beth Chaim members should have received an email with links to RSVP. If you did not receive a link, please call the office. Scroll down for answers to frequently asked questions regarding our Covid protocol.

As is our tradition, we will once again be collecting for those less fortunate than us, and so we ask that you bring a non-perishable food item for donation; we will have bins outside the sanctuary doors for collection for the Contra Costa Food Bank from Rosh Hashanah thru Yom Kippur. We thank you deeply in advance.
