Calling all Gabbai Volunteers
We are looking for 8-10 people who can take shifts as gabbai on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur. We will pair an experienced gabbai with a new volunteer. There will be two trainings in September and the opportunity to shadow an experienced gabbai on Shabbat mornings. Interested? Email Amy Leveen, amy@leveen.com or find her at services.

Skills Training workshop
Sunday, September 22 at 10:00 AM in the Sanctuary to learn and practice for the first time or review skills for taking any honor during services -- opening the Ark curtain, holding and carrying a Torah, taking an Aliyah, doing Hag-bah (lifting the Torah) or Gellilah (dressing the Torah).

Musaf in the Library
During the Musaf service on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, we will offer an
alternative service in addition to the service in the Main Sanctuary and the Taub Room. Led by Barry Stern, an experienced Baal Tefillah/prayer leader, the service will offer an intimate, lay-lead prayer experience. Largely in song and punctuated by a few, brief commentaries on the liturgy, without interruption. With open seating, congregants are invited to come at any time during the service and lend their voices to what will be a warm, contemplative, and inspiring prayer experience. Location: The Bette and Phil Baum Library. Date: First day Rosh Hashanah. Time: After Rabbi Katz and Rabbi Linden’s sermons. (Approximately 11:30 AM) Who: Open to anyone attending services at CSAIR.

No special tickets are necessary!
