letter from csi president, Sharon K. LevinI hope this letter finds you and your family well and enjoying the summer season. The High Holy Days willbe here shortly and we want to share some information with you. One of the things we are most proud of inour shul is the way in which we provide the best service to our congregants. We provide three very differenttypes of religious services so that every member’s needs should be met. In this booklet, you will find anoutline of programs and services which Congregation Shearith Israel will be offering for the 2011/5772 HighHoly Days.This year you will not need a ticket for Erev Rosh Hashanah services. We will have open seatingas usual. Please invite your families, friends and the community to join us for this family-friendlyservice. Please look for more details in the Shofar and on our web page www.shearith.org.Our services will be in the Aaron Family Main Sanctuary and Beck Family Sanctuary on the Douglas Campus,and in Beit Aryeh on the Ann and Nate Levine Academy Campus: Erev Rosh Hashanah, Wednesday,September 28th; Rosh Hashanah Thursday, September 29th and Friday, September 30th; KolNidre, Friday, October 7th; and Yom Kippur Saturday, October 8th. As in the past, seats in theAaron Family Main Sanctuary and in Beck Family Sanctuary are assigned; at Beit Aryeh there isno assigned seating. Reservations and tickets are required for admission to all services withthe exception of Erev Rosh Hashanah. To continue to provide a safe place of worship for ourcongregants, we will continue our policy of issuing tickets for each individual seat. Every personwho enters the building will be required to show his or her own ticket and photo identification forentry. Please carry your ticket and photo identification with you at all times. Thank you.Once again, we will have offsite parking available at the Fifth Church of Christ Scientist parkinglot located at 5655 West Northwest Highway, Dallas, Texas 75220. We will have shuttle busesavailable to transport you to and from Shearith Israel on Douglas Avenue.Please check the enclosed seating price schedule before requesting the seats of your choice. We are committedto making certain that every congregant can participate here at Congregation Shearith Israel. Should youneed any financial assistance in this matter, please do not hesitate to speak with Robin Littrell at ext. 210.Again this year, we have designed a Rabbinic High Holy Days “round-robin” (see page 8). Rabbi Gershon willofficiate at all three locations so he is able to spend part of the holidays with all of our congregants. RabbiGlickman will officiate at Beit Aryeh and Rabbi Menashe will return again this year to officiate at our Douglassite.Cantors officiating at the three services are as follows: Cantor Itzhak Zhrebker, accompanied by theCongregation Shearith Israel Choir, will co-officiate in the Aaron Family Main Sanctuary; Cantor Mark Levineand Ritual Director, Avi Mitzner will alternate in Beck Family Sanctuary and at Beit Aryeh.There are a number of other items to review this year:• First, thanks to the hard work of our budget committee. I am happy to say that there is no fee increasefor High Holy Day seats this year. It was the commitment of the synagogue’s leadership that seat pricesbe kept stable to insure that all of our congregants can enjoy the holidays.• Second, in an effort to create a unique family prayer experience, services on Erev Rosh Hashanah in theAaron Family Main Sanctuary and at Beit Aryeh will be opened up to include family of our members andguests who belong to other synagogues in the community.• We are very excited to offer another special Family Service on the second day of Rosh Hashanah againthis year. While this service will be geared for families and children, everyone is welcome to participateand enjoy the experience. The service, approximately one hour in length will be led by Rabbi Gershonin Topletz Auditorium.1(Continued on page 2)


• Rabbis Menashe and Glickman will be leading special Tashlich services on the first day of RoshHashanah, Thursday, September 29th. In the North, services will be held at Frankford Park while in thesouth, the community will have the pleasure of participating in Tashlich at the home of Susan and MartyGolman, 5847 Dexter Drive, Dallas, TX 75230. Especially geared for young families, this service willgive parents and grandparents an opportunity to engage their children and/or grandchildren in theHoly Day tradition. For more details on Tashlich, please see page 6 of this book.• We will also once again be offering babysitting and children’s activities for youngsters, 18 months tofive years. Due to code compliance and regulations there is a specific ratio of the number ofchildren to babysitter. All children must be pre-registered this year. There is a nominal feefor babysitting to help us provide the safest environment for your children. Please see page14 to register your children. Children’s programming will be held on the morning of the first andsecond day of Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur. However, if you have guests joining youto worship at Congregation Shearith Israel, they will need to register their children as well by callingour Religious School prior to the beginning of the holidays.• We have also taken special note of the concerns that our congregants have raised regarding ourHigh Holy Day youth programs. This year we have completely redesigned the youth programs andare utilizing a variety of different modes to teach our children about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippurand enrich their experience of the holidays. Programming this year will include such activities as:age-appropriate services, story telling, holiday games, and guest teachers. Everyone at CongregationShearith Israel shares the belief in the importance of a positive and valued youth experience throughoutthis most meaningful time of the year.• Additionally, this year we are beginning a new mentoring program where teens in grades 9 through12 may apply to be volunteer helpers with the children’s programming. To apply, go to page 16.• This packet includes your seating request form, as well as a statement of policies and proceduresfor your information.

You have madea distinction between the sanctity ofShabbat and the sanctity of Yom Tov,and you have sanctified the seventhday over the days of creation.

Therefore, the custom developedon the second night to eat a new fruit(such as figs, pomegranates, kiwi)or other fruit not eaten that year,offering the opportunity to recite theShechayanu. Most common of thesefruits is the pomegranate, in hope thatwe may be as full of good deeds as thepomegranate is of seeds.Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melechha-olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav,v’zivanu leisheiv basukkah.Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Rulerof the universe, who has sanctifiedus with your commandments andhas commanded us to dwell in thesukkah.(ON ALL NIGHTS CONTINUE)Baruch atah Adonai eloheinu melechha’olam, sh’hehecheyanu v’keamanuv’higianu lazman hazeh.Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Rulerof the universe, who has kept us aliveand sustained us and brought us tothis special time.Ritual HandwashingAs a symbolic gesture connectingour holiday table to the Tabernacle ofTemple times, we wash our hands asdid the Cohanim (high priests) beforeoffering sacrifices.
