High Holidays 5780 - Ark Openings

We are doing High Holiday Ark Opening honors at the Bellmore Campus differently this year. We invite you to participate.

We have set up an online reservation system for most of the Ark openings. If you want an ark opening for your family please pick one from the available list.  If you are not sure when you will be available or if all of your preferred times are taken, please notify an usher when you arrive for services that you would like an ark opening and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you are uncomfortable with the online system please send an email with your preferred day and time to ritual@cbohr.org.

We will be continuing the custom of allowing everyone to go up to the ark for silent prayer during Neillah, the Yom Kippur concluding service.  If you did not have an opportunity for an Ark Opening during any of the other services, you will definitely be able to participate during this time.

Non-Ark Opening Aliyot (being called to the Torah, Shofar Torah Holders and Shofar callers, etc) will still be assigned by the Honors Committee as in previous years. If you have received one of those honors in the mail, please do not use this system and allow other congregants an opportunity to participate.

Please pick one Ark Opening from the available time slots:
