Usher for High Holy Days at TE The High Holy Days are a special time of year. Our Temple Emanuel congregation gathers together to worship and reflect on the past year and the coming year. Each year, we ask many members to assist during these High Holy Day services by being ushers. The ushers help make sure that everyone who joins us has a meaningful and spiritual service. We invite our adult congregants to volunteer to assist with this coming year’s High Holy Day services by serving as an usher.
