Yamim Noraim 5782
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
The month of Elul begins on August 8, 2021, meaning Rosh Hashanah is just around the corner, the first night occuring this year on Monday night of Labor Day Weekend, September 6, 2021.

The MKHC Board of Directors and the Ritual Committee are excited to share that this year for the Yamim Noraim - Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur -
Rabbi Reuven Stengel and Cantor Dr. Joshua Kaplan will be joining us at MKHC to lead our services. Rabbi Stengel and his wife, Rebbetzin Esti will also return to be with us for Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah.  We look forward to welcoming them back to our community and welcoming in the holiday season together.

Member Survey Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur 5782
Last year, we safely came together as a community with in-person, socially distanced seating in a large tent at the Mount Kisco Courthouse parking lot – with special thanks to the Village of Mount Kisco and the County Police and the generosity of our community.  It was a moving and spiritually uplifting time for us to be able to be together as a community to observe in-person. 

While we are emerging from the Covid-19 emergency of last year and are now back in our own synagogue building, we remain keenly aware of the differing levels of comfort with gathering.  Members will receive a Survey later this week which we ask you to promptly complete and return by Tuesday, August 3, 2021.  The survey will help us to gauge how many members are planning to attend and for which services.  The survey will be followed by a Member Reservation Form.  We are already receiving calls at the synagogue office about tickets for the holidays from the larger community and want to be able to accommodate people who are new to our area once we have the responses from our members.

If you are from our wider community and wish to attend Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services at MKHC this year, please contact us for additional information at office@mkhc.org.

We continue to closely monitor CDC guidelines and New York State recommendations. Masks are now optional for fully vaccinated individuals inside MKHC.  Please be sensitive to those individuals who still feel vulnerable and maintain social distancing or wearing masks.  Non-vaccinated children, adolescents and adults must continue to wear a mask. Join us any Shabbat and help us to make a minyan! Contact Rabbi Dov Greer at rabbi_greer@att.net if you can join us for Saturday services.
