High Holidays 2021 (5782)

This year we will be having hybrid High Holiday services - individuals can choose to participate in person or on Zoom. For security purposes, members and non-members must both register ahead of time; please click on the appropriate registration link below. The Zoom protocols are explained HERE.

Here is a link to the digital machzor.

Given the serious nature of the Delta variant and an uptick of COVID cases in Greenbelt and Prince George's county, we have made the following changes to our policy for IN PERSON attendance for the High Holy Days and other in person events.


1. You must submit a photo/scan of your vaccination card in order to attend IN PERSON. This information will be shared with greeters to ensure 100% compliance. You cannot enter the building without showing proof of vaccination.

2. Masking for any event at MT is no longer strongly encouraged but MANDATORY - including the upcoming outdoor fair.

3. If this information has caused you to rethink your plans for attendance at the HH, please revisit the MT website's high holiday page and re- register your preferences. The Committees working to organize a seamless event will look at your MOST RECENT entry.

Copies of the Lev Shalem machzor will be available for pick up at Mishkan Torah on Sunday August 22, from 3-5 pm. We can only provide one machzor per family. A digital version will also be available; the information on how to to access it will be sent out in September . Please indicate which option you prefer when you register.


We are asking everyone to register by August 20, 2021. Please use one of these links:.
