Yomim noraim aliyos

Dear Shomrei Family,

Thank you for patience over the past several weeks as we have prepared for what we hope will be a beautiful and inspiring Yomim Noraim. While it has been a trying and arduous six months, with our routine of coming to shul on a regular basis disrupted, we hope that you will walk away with a renewed sense of appreciation for the shul.

This time period is incredibly important for the shul from a financial perspective. It is a time when we generate a large portion of our operating budget. We will be using a new website this year for our auction:

As the Rav has mentioned several times in the past, there is a special z'chus to have an aliya on the Yomim Noraim. Please consider bidding generously, whether for yourself, a family member, or a friend.

You will need to register and create an account. If you make a bid, please check your spam folder shortly after your bid, and label it as "non-spam."

In a change from previous years, we will be not be auctioning פתיחה or הגבה וגלילה this year, but will be auctioning ונתנה תקף.

Wishing you and your family a year of health and happiness.

minyan Sign Up - Shabbos and Weekdays

To our Shomrei Emunah Family:

We want to continue to stress adherence to shul guidelines. Baruch Hashem, our shul is setting a proper example.  It is still just as important to maintain the wearing masks and sitting in the pre-marked seats. Please do not confront people who you feel are not following guidelines, but rather approach the minyan gabbai.

If you have been in Florida in the past 14 days, please do not come to shul.

Shabbos minyanim will be beginning with brochos.  All men and women and boys and girls ages 9 and older are invited to register. Minyanim are first-come, first-served, and priority will be given to our members. Only those who register will be able to join.   

Minyan Sign Up Sheet

There will be a Teen Minyan for middle school and high school boys with Rabbi Bennett, which will meet in the Beis Medrash at 9:30 am. To sign up for the Teen Minyan, please only contact Rabbi Bennett at 
A WhatsApp group has been created for the teen minyan updates. Use this link to join.

For those who would prefer an outdoor Shabbos morning option, we will be partnering with Ner Tamid to make a joint outdoor minyan in their fenced in property.  Please contact Murray Jacobson for information

WEEKDAY MINYANIM: Thank you again for following all the safety guidelines-- wearing masks and sitting in the pre-marked seats - it has been reassuring seeing mispallelim be conscientious of each other.

Please ONLY enter and exit through the back door near the parking lot, as the front door will remain locked.

This coming week we will be having the following minyanim.


* Restrooms will be available for emergency use and will be cleaned consistently.

* You must continue to wear masks, covering both your mouth and nose, and follow all the safety guidelines while in our shul.

* Please bring your own siddurim/chumashim.

* If you are not feeling well, or have family members who are not feeling well, please do not come to shul. If you have COVID-19 symptoms please get tested immediately, and let us know if you test positive for contact tracing purposes.

* Members of the same family may sit in the double chairs and maintain a 6-foot distance from the nearest chair.

*Due to the limited number of seats, the signup sheet is limited to shul members only.  Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate guests at this time.
