Beth Hillel Temple continues its long-standing tradition of offering an open door to all who choose to worship with us at the High Holy Days. We manage this process through the distribution of Yom Tov Passes (tickets).

All guests are required to register to receive a Yom Tov Pass, which enables us to continue our long tradition of openness while demonstrating the value of temple membership. Click on this link to register. We will send you your own Yom Tov pass. If you would prefer you can register via phone by calling the office at 262-654-2716. Your passes will be waiting for you at the door of the Temple before services. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early if you will be picking up passes.

We welcome back this year, Orit Perlman, cantorial soloist, singer of Jewish music and composer. Orit graduated from the Hebrew Union College program for Israeli cantorial soloists. She has been serving families and congregations in Israel and the United States since 1995 as prayer leader of Shabbat, High Holidays, and life cycle ceremonies, particularly as officiator of bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah ceremonies. Orit has composed music especially for Beth Hillel Holy Days services. 

Orit has a special knowledge of ladino music. Learn more about Orit and this wonderful music at www.oritperlman-ladino.com.

Family Services, designed for families with children ages seven and under, are 45 minutes in length and are offered at 9:00 am on Rosh Hashanah, and at 2:30 pm on Yom Kippur. Children of all ages are encouraged to attend regular services as well. We encourage parents with restless/talkative youngsters to take them out for short breaks until they can sit quietly again.

All ages will enjoy our annual walk to Lake Michigan after Rosh Hashanah morning services. We toss breadcrumbs representing our sins into the lake. Enjoy honey cake, apple cider, and apples and honey at the Temple after Tashlich. Please gather on the front steps of the building after Rosh Hashanah morning as we process together to the lakefront.

The parking lots will be cleared by the hospital for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The First United Methodist Church has graciously given us permission to use their east parking lot on Sheridan Road for Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah day, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur day. The parking lot is located at the southwest corner of 60th Street and Sheridan Road, with entrances on Sheridan Road.

Beth Hillel Temple thanks you for your participation and generous contribution to our Yom Kippur Book of Memory project. Your support is greatly appreciated. You may pick up your booklet in the temple corridor outside the sanctuary before entering for the Yom Kippur afternoon service.
