The Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is called Shabbat Shuvah, Shabbat of Return because its special haftarah reading begins with the words ShuvahYisrael "Return O Israel," from the prophecy of Hoshea. It is also referred to as Shabbat Teshuvah because it falls during the Ten Days of Repentance.

The prayer service on this Shabbat is the same as on an ordinary Shabbat with the exception of the additions that are made to the Amidah throughout the Ten Days of Repentance. Avinu Malkenu is not recited. In the blessing at the end of the Magen Avotprayer following evening services on Friday night, the words ha-Melech ha-Kadosh are substituted for ha-El ha-Kadosh.


Due to safety precautions and limited socially-distanced seating, only those who have pre-registered can attend the outdoor Yom Kippur service. We look forward to when we can once again have our doors open to all those who wish to drop in!

Due to the epidemic, many people will not be able to attend the service this year. We want to give everyone a chance to participate in bidding for the Yom Kippur Aliyot and Kibbudim (honors) and are therefore offering a silent, online auction. If you will not be present at the minyan, all honors can be can be carried out by an appointed person. Whatever is not bid on prior to Yom Kippur, will be auctioned at the service. Bids will be accepted as they are received. We will accept syndicates for Maftir Yonah.

These kibbudim (honors), which we wait for all year long, bring strength and blessings to those who bid on them and sustenance to the Minyan.
