Outdoor Services at Temple
Selichot, Rosh Hashanah Morning, and Yom Kippur Morning
Will I need to register? Yes, members should register for in-person service options at timemphis.org/high-holy-days/ and indicate how many family members will be attending. Registration will open closer to the dates of services so we may continue to accommodate and adhere to the most timely COVID-19 guidelines as directed by the Shelby County Health Department. We appreciate your patience.
Who can register? Temple Israel families and their children in 8th grade and higher may attend outdoor services. Our congregants in COVID-19 vulnerable categories as well as the greater Memphis and Jewish community are invited to tune in virtually via timemphis.org or Facebook, neither of which require formal registration.
Who can I sit with? Groups will be placed by households. Only adult Temple members and their children in 8th grade and higher may attend in-person, outdoor services at Temple.
Do I need to wear a mask? Yes, please bring a mask and wear it throughout the service. Some masks will be available at hospitality tables.
Where do I park? Parking in the Temple lot will be available beginning at 9 am.
Where do I sit? Chairs will be provided.
Will bathrooms be available? Yes.
What should I wear? Please dress comfortably and wear shoes appropriate for uneven terrain.
Do I need a prayerbook? No, the service will be crafted such that you will not need a prayerbook. Should you wish to purchase one, please contact the Sisterhood gift shop by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 901.937.2782.
