We welcome the New Year of 5782 in September, with Erev Rosh Hashanah fast approaching on Monday, September 6th: Labor Day, hoping for a better year to come. While we couldn’t come together as a community as we wanted to last year for the High Holidays, we will be together this year in-person while observing COVID protocol guidelines. For those who are not comfortable joining in-person, livestream will be available for many of the services and events.

Temple Israel of New Rochelle has been guided by the Jewish value of pikuach nefesh—putting health and safety first. We invite all to participate in a variety of Elul and High Holiday events and programs that will broaden our Jewish connection to each other, our temple, and ourselves.

Wishing you a healthy, safe, and sweet New Year. L’shanah tovah um’tukah.

Rabbi Jay Rosenbaum – Cantor Randall M. Schloss


Come here frequently for more up-to-date information about the High Holidays. Look for a mailing at the end of July.
Reservations for services will be released shortly.

We are looking forward to sharing together.


Prepare for the High Holidays

During the month of Elul, August 9 – September 6, 2021, Jewish tradition instructs us to prepare ourselves spiritually for the High Holidays and begin the work of repentance. In order to enable our entire community to take part in the spiritual work of Elul, we will be sending out the “e-lul” daily email with a text, prayer, or poem to help us get in the right frame of mind for the holidays. Hope you find them inspirational and thoughtful!
