AARC Members Will Receive Tishrei Bags in Support of the High Holidays At Home
The High Holidays cannot help but be different this year, but thanks to the hard work of our Tishrei Bag Committee, all of our members will be able to celebrate with a set of thoughtfully curated items. Engaging with ritual objects is an important part of the chagim; the Tishrei Bag project supports us in uniting with our fellow members from our own homes through the vehicle of these shared objects.
The Tishrei Bags will include:
- Apples and honey
- 2 pairs of holiday candles for Erev Rosh Hashana and Erev Yom Kippur
- A yahrzeit candle for Yizkor
- Bird seed for Tashlich
- Special gifts from Beit Sefer families
- High Holidays schedule and handouts
- High Holidays prayer book (machzor)
Members can receive their Tishrei Bags in either of two ways: You can pick your bag at 2815 Pebble Creek on September 13th from 1:30-4 pm, or a member can deliver the bag to your house. If you do not pick up your bag on the 13th, a volunteer will bring it to your home.
A special thank you to the Tishrei Bag Committee: Laurie White, Carol Levin, Clare Kinberg, Jen Hall, and Evelyn Neuhaus. Thank you also to our volunteer delivery crew and to the Meadows family for assembling the bags! It takes a village! Please email us if you have any questions about the Tishrei Bags.
