High Holy Days – COBS Update

High Holy Day Services:  We have made the difficult decision to not hold our own High Holy Day Services for a number of reasons:

  1. COVID-19
  2. The high risk nature of our congregation
  3. We were unable to secure a student rabbi for services this year 

Instead, we are going to explore and share access to streaming services.  We will be sharing what we are able to find later this summer. If you have information about available streaming services, please send them to congregationobsh@olypen.com. A comprehensive list will be published as we get closer to the dates. Although we are disappointed to cancel such an important set of services, the health and well being of our community is our primary concern. 

On the bright side, this gives us the opportunity to share streaming services with family and friends who love their congregations as well, and experience another style of service to mix it up a bit!

We will hold a Sunrise Service on Saturday, September 19, 2020, 6:40 am (Sunrise is at 6:57) at the end of the Port Angeles Pier.

We will hold Tashlich 9/19 at 2:30 pm at Railroad Bridge Park – Bring bread crumbs.

We are exploring the possibilities of having outdoor Kol Nidre and Yizkor services.  If others want to volunteer to plan and host other parts of each service outside we can certainly consider that.
