Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur 5781/2020 at EHRS
The High Holy Days for EHRS is an extraordinary celebration of community as well as being a spiritually transformative time for every individual in our congregation. Most years close to two thousand members come onto our Stonegrove site at the same time. This year, as we continue to cope responsibly and caringly with the Covid-19 pandemic, we will have to prioritise the highest Jewish value, pikuach nefesh, the preservation of life and adapt our High Holy Days experience accordingly. In the Talmud Yoma 83a our Rabbis tell us directly that this is what we must do as they consider a case where a building has collapsed near a Synagogue on Yom Kippur. They rule that the services must end immediately and all go out to help save anyone still living as long as there is still breath in their body.
