VeHashevota El Levavecha:  Return to Your Heart

In these turbulent times, the High Holy Days offer an opportunity to ignite the love, compassion, and strength of our courageous hearts. The imperative of the Holy Days is for each of us to return to our essence. Join us in loving community as we return to do this work together. We will enliven traditional liturgy with new melodies and soulful songs from across cultures, as well as explore ancient wisdom to find modern meaning.

CHILDCARE

COVID PROTOCOLS

In consultation from our medical advisor, Chochmat HaLev will no longer check Covid vaccination status at events.

We will continue to require N-95, KN-95, or surgical masking for indoor events.  Masks must cover your nose and mouth at all times.  Cloth masks and ventilated masks of any kind are not acceptable.  Appropriate masks will be provided as needed.

We will provide passive ventilation (e.g. open windows and doors under the supervision of security-trained personnel) and other equipment as available.

Do NOT attend any Chochmat HaLev event:

  • If you are experiencing any potential symptoms of COVID-19 or other illness
  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days and have not had a negative antigen test on Day 6 or later
  • If you have had a known exposure to COVID-19 in the past 3-5 days
  • If a household member has tested positive in the last 10 days and has not had a negative antigen test on Day 6 or later

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Volunteering for High Holy Days is a wonderful way to contribute to the community.  It is because of you and your interest in Chochmat HaLev that we are able to make High Holy Days successful.  We have wonderful opportunities this year for you to contribute your gifts of time and skills.
