Prayer Book Pick-Up

We recognize that while so many of us have enjoyed Erev Shabbat services online, prayer books have only been available in a PDF file. Since High Holiday services are longer and provide more space for introspection through supplemental readings, Beth El will be making prayer books available for you to borrow. Brotherhood is coordinating teams of volunteers to distribute books for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur via parking lot drive-through. If you cannot participate and would like loaner books, please let us know at There is an absolute limit of two sets of books per multi-member household.
The schedule for prayer book pick-up in the parking lot is:

· Thursday, Sept. 3, 5-7 pm
· Wednesday, Sept. 9, 10 am-noon
· Sunday, Sept. 13, 10 am-noon
· Monday, Sept. 14, 5-7 pm
· Tuesday, Sept. 15, 5-7 pm
