Shana Tova! We are thrilled to be able to share with you our schedule for the High Holy Days. We have endeavored to create vibrant, meaningful, engaging and very personal High Holy Day experiences for you.
This year indeed is like no other, offering us so many creative possibilities to enhance community. We hope you’ll not only participate in our vast array of virtual offerings, but also our in-person tashlikh and shofar blowing in your neighborhood,
drive – thru receiving line, and Ark visitation.
We invite you, your family and friends to join us to Return, Reflect & Renew. Don’t miss the opportunity to pray, learn, meditate, cook, and eat together as a community.

Yom Kippur Food Drive – TWO HOURS ONLY!
Sunday, September 27, 10 a.m. – noon Co-sponsored by Chizuk Amuno Sisterhood
The proceeds from the Yom Kippur Food Drive will be given to the Maryland Food Bank. In response to increased food insecurity brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, MFB has stepped up its distribution practices, ensuring children get meals normally provided in school, offering drive-through pick-up for families in need of fresh produce and non-perishables, and getting nutritious foods to homebound seniors.
It is Hunger Action Month. And we are in the midst of a pandemic. Please stop by Chizuk Amuno on the 27th and contribute during this truly difficult time. In lieu of food, monetary donations will be accepted. Checks can be made out to Chizuk Amuno Congregation and directed to the attention of Cheryl Snyderman.
