High Holidays Schedule

Our dear family and friends of the Shaarey Tphiloh Community,

We warmly invite you to join us for the High Holidays! As we say goodbye to the past year and welcome 5778, we would love for you to join us for the many celebrations in the coming weeks.

All are welcome at our shul at 400 Deering Avenue in Portland, Maine. No tickets are required; however, donations are always welcome so that we can continue to offer our community a safe and inviting home of worship for years to come. As with last year, reserved seats are available only for dues-paying members, volunteers and donors due to the limits of our more intimate space. There will be limited free seating available to those who do not reserve a seat ahead of time. If you would like to reserve a seat, call 774-2649 or send us an email at maineshul@nullgmail.com.

This year, Rosh Hashanah begins on the evening of September 20th and continues through Friday, September 22nd. Yom Kippur begins with Kol Nidrei on Friday evening, September 29th. The cantors for the High Holidays this year will be Josh Pernick, Levi Mastrangelo, Eitan Kahn and Joel Kahn.

Please click on the button below to see this year’s calendar detailing the schedule of events throughout the holidays.

Letters will be mailed out shortly detailing this very same information. Additionally, a letter has been mailed out regarding this year’s Memorial Book; please keep an eye out for this letter and respond promptly so that the names of your loved ones may be added to and remember during Yizkor services of 5778.

We look forward to seeing you at High Holidays in just a few short weeks.

Sponsor a Kiddush!

Temple Beth El and Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh are partnering to offer Kiddush refreshments on Shabbat and holidays. Sharing a Friday night or Shabbat service and Kiddush is a wonderful opportunity to support our congregations, build community, share in the simcha of a birthday, anniversary or graduation, and offer comfort to those observing a yahrzeit.
Please note, due to the increased cost of lox, premium level Kiddush sponsorships now cost $200.

Dear Shaarey Tphiloh Community,

We need your help!

We would like to include the names of all those in our community who would benefit from our thoughts and prayers so we encourage you to communicate with us. Please, let us know if there is anyone whose name you would like included in our service and announcements and keep us updated through their recovery.

Shabbat Shalom,
