This year there will be family experiences on all three days, Rosh Hashanah Day 1 and 2 and Yom Kippur. In addition, there will be children's programming on all three days at different times than the family experiences. See schedule above for times. 


Yizkor Memorial Book Submission

During the High Holy Days season, it is customary to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. At CNT, we publish an annual Memorial Book through which those in our community can list the names of whom they wish to remember. In doing so, it is customary to make a voluntary contribution in their memory.

Click here to make your submission and contribution.

Please complete and submit your form along with your contribution by Friday, August 28th, to guarantee the names of your loved ones will be included. If you are having trouble making a submission, please contact Ambir Elliott at

If we do not receive a submission from you, your submission from last year will be included. We cannot guarantee that submission received after the deadline will make it into the Memorial Book.


Sisterhood Greeting Book Submission

The Shanah Tovah Greeting Booklet is a great way to stay connected to each other. Your CNT Sisterhood helps support many facets of running a synagogue, including school activities, special programs, youth scholarships, social action, bereavement support, Bubbe reading program, educational programs, community programming and much more. Your greeting helps us achieve our mission of supporting Congregation Ner Tamid. 

Attached is the greeting book form. Please send us your High Holiday greeting or check the box to use last year's greeting. Be sure to select your greeting size on the form. We want to make sure that our community greetings are submitted in a timely manner.  All greetings are due no later than August 15th.
