The Ritual Committee is filling the roster of Torah readers for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  A few spots are still available and we are looking for  volunteers to fill in the gaps.  This will most likely be a virtual service, so you will not have to stand at the front of the sanctuary.  You will be able to chant Torah from your own photocopy, or from the Torah that will be projected as a part of the service. Cantor Ruth is available to work with you. 

The schedule is filling up fast, so please express your interest in reading to Irene Herz.
