2016 HIGH HOLY DAY SCHEDULE
Our parking lot can only accommodate about 50 cars. To help with overflow parking, Our Lady of Fatima Church, located at 160 Concord Road in Sudbury, has kindly allowed us to use their parking lot for the first day Rosh Hashanah Service on Monday October 3rd and Yom Kippur Morning Service on Wednesday October 12. Please park at the temple for all other services.
Our Lady of Fatima requests that we park in spaces farthest from the building, which is also where the shuttle buses will pick up and drop off. Buses will be available beginning at 8:30 am on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings. Those requiring a parking space at the temple should conact Robin Berman at least one week in advance at (978)443-2082.
BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR
Congregation B'nai Torah shares the streets of Sudbury with our neighbors. Please remember to obey all Sudbury traffic and parking regulations while attending services. In the past some neighbors have complained because some congregants parked in their lots during business hours or illegally in front of private homes. This did not help our relationship with the community.
We request that all those attending services at the temple remind their guests of Sudbury's traffic and parking regulations, particularly the following:
Our neighbors have every right to call the Sudbury police to enforce the traffic and parking regulations. The result could be ticketing or towing of vehicles.
If you have not been notified that you are permitted to park at the temple, please park at Our Lady of Fatima Church located at 160 Concord Road in Sudbury.

The Congregation B’nai Torah Ritual Committee and the Board of Directors respectfully request that during the High Holy Days it is especially important that we respect our neighbors during Services. Prayer is that time when we speak to God. It is a time to give thanks and offer blessings, to find meaning, cope with sorrow, and much more. Please help us maintain an atmosphere that is suitable for prayer by following a few simple guidelines:
Thank you! Our community appreciates your kindness and respect, and we look forward to celebrating with you and your family.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4THNO TICKETS NEEDED FOR SECOND DAY ROSH HASHANAHTHE WIDER COMMUNITY IS WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND ONE OR BOTH SERVICES
Morning Service 10:30am - 12:00pm
Our morning service for the second day of Rosh Hashanah will be led by our Rabbi and Cantor, and will include a shofar service and short Torah reading. Parking is available within the temple parking lot.
A traditional Tashlich service, led by the Rabbi and Cantor, will follow the second day Rosh Hashanah morning service. We will gather near water, and from the edge, we will symbolically cast off our sins as Jews have done for hundreds of years. We'll leave from the temple shortly after services at approximately 12:15 pm. Anyone not attending the norning service, but wishing to share in the tradition of the Tashlich service, is welcome and encouraged to join us for Tashlich only. Come as you are - jeans okay! We will meet at the Grist Mill, near the Wayside Inn. Bring bread to cast upon the water.
The second day service, though an "adult" service, is very child-friendly. It is much shorter than the first day service, and is lightly attended with a very informal atmosphere.
Honors are given out on the spot at the start of the service, the Torah service is one aliyah followed by a short Haftarah, and the sermon is brief. It is a great opportunity to expose a child to the adult service without it being overwhelming.
If that still sounds like too much, you might want to bring a child to the Tashlich service only. It is 15 minutes long, and one long blast of the shofar will be blown at its conclusion.
If you have questions, please contact the temple office by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 978–443–2082.
