While we have planned a fulfilling worship experience that is not dependent upon your having a prayer-book in hand, online “flipbooks” for Rosh HaShanah and for Yom Kippur are available for free as pdfs at these sites;

Rosh Hashanah:      ccar.co/mhn-rh

Yom Kippur:             ccar.co/mhn-yk

Instructions on how to use a “flipbook” are found here: https://www.ccarnet.org/publications/how-to-use-flip-books/

If you plan to use the flipbook, we advise you to read the instructions and give it a “test drive” before the holy days arrive.

You are welcome to share this information with family and friends! We encourage you to consider “setting the mood” to experience these services by dressing for the occasion, placing your computer or television in a sitting conducive to reflection and engagement with the words and music of these holy days, and gracing your gathering space with fresh flowers.

Falmouth Jewish Congregation wishes you and yours a 5,781 filled with health, contentment and peace. May all of us do our part to help make it so!
