Beth Ami Temple will welcome people back this fall, starting with a virtual/online open house.

Beth Ami will host the open house at 2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 27 online. People can participate in it online through the temple’s website. The temple had wanted to hold the open house in person at its location at 3535 E. Lincoln Drive inside the Palo Cristi Presbyterian Church but because of the increasing number of COVID-19 cases it decided to move it to an online event.

The open house will give guests a chance to meet current temple members, Rabbi Allison Lawton and cantorial soloist Michael Robbins and to learn about the congregation’s many activities and social groups.

The congregation’s High Holiday Services will be held in person, starting on Monday, Sept. 6, Labor Day. It is free for temple members to attend the services and non-members can attend them for $125 for a single ticket and $250 for a family ticket. These ticket costs can be applied to membership fees. A single membership to the temple costs $295 and a family membership costs $590 a year.

Beth Ami Temple will hold its Rosh Hashanah Evening Service at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 6 and the Rosh Hashanah Morning Service at 10 a.m. on Sept. 7. The Yom Kippur Evening service will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 15, the Yom Kippur Morning Service will be held at 10 a.m. on Sept. 16 and the Yom Kippur Afternoon Service will begin at 4 p.m. on Sept. 16.
