PHS Community,

First, we want to thank the High Holidays Planning Committee, and to all of our volunteers who made davening so meaningful over the past month. 

Next, we wanted to provide an update on our plan for in-person davening up to and including November 21 (the Shabbat before Thanksgiving). All services are weather permitting and will require in person sign up.

We are also in the process of scaling up virtual programming, which we will share in a separate update. As always, we welcome any and all suggestions!

  • Shabbat Parshat Noach (Oct 23-Oct 24):  Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat Afternoon Mincha. Shacharit is TBC. Sign up here

  • All Other Shabbatot: (Oct 30-Oct 31, Nov 6-7, Nov 13-14, Nov 20-21): Kabbalat Shabbat, Shacharit, AND Mincha

Some additional notes:

  • Times & Locations. All Shacharit services will begin at 9:30 am. Kabbalat Shabbat and Mincha will shift based on the week. All davening will take place on the lot at 979 Pacific Street.

  • Kiddush. All Shacharit services will be followed by a "to-go" kiddush. Please contact the Board if you are interested in sponsoring!

  • Kids. Starting week of 10/30, we are pleased to welcome younger kids back to the outdoor space for davening on a limited basis. This invitation is contingent on their wearing masks and ability to sit quietly during davening. If they are not able to do so, we ask that they stay home for now. We anxiously await the opportunity to host a full kids' program again in the future.  

FINALLY: We will be monitoring the situation and any relevant state, local and communal guidance closely and will share updates if anything changes.

As always, we thank you for your patience and support in helping us put on davening in these challenging times, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
