No Services in the Sanctuary on Friday, September 17.
On that evening, we’ll have Shabbat Babayit—Shabbat at home. After Yom Kippur which we’ll observe next Wednesday night and Thursday, we’ve decided to have a low-key Kabbalat Shabbat service the following day. We’ll gather that evening on Zoom for a short service, including candle lighting, kiddush, motzi, Mi Sheberach, Kaddish, and a few songs. We will NOT be in the sanctuary that evening. Zoom Links will be shared next week.

Yom Kippur Food Drive
High Holy Day Food Drive with The Ark of Chicago
Beth Emet will continue the High Holy Day food drive tradition in partnership with The Ark of Chicago. The synagogue will be accepting donations on Yom Kippur day, September 16, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, and the first day of Beit Sefer, September 19, from 9:30 am and 1:30 pm The Beth Emet parking lot will again be the drop-off site.

On the day of Yom Kippur, you may drop off your donations prior to entering the sanctuary. On the first day of Beit Sefer, you may either hand off your donations after parking or remain in your car and drive up to the pod using the typical Beit Sefer counterclockwise pattern. In that event, donated items will be retrieved by volunteers directly from trunks and hatches. Our volunteers will be wearing masks. We ask that donors use recyclable bags.

The Ark will not be providing bags or stickers (listing preferred items). Instead, a list is provided here with the caveat that all food donations must be certified kosher and must have expiration dates of at least six months after the drop-off date. The Ark will also not accept vegetables with a "Triangle K" Kosher symbol. The most common brands using this symbol are Del Monte and Kirkland.
