High Holy Days 2020.

Currently, the COVID-19 regulations are still changing constantly and we cannot be sure what restrictions will be in place by the High Holy Days. Our aim and hope are that it will be the same as previous years.

We are 100% committed to delivering the kind of services our community has come to know and love just as we have each year. We have various contingency plans in place to ensure everyone’s health and safety, but the warmth you feel, the sermons you enjoy and the singing you love will all be the same to the greatest extent possible.

As we get closer to Rosh Hashanah, and we have clarity on the situation, we will provide detailed information on how services will run, how your safety will be managed, how we will proceed in accordance with any limitations on numbers.

To keep up to date please sign up to our newsletter. Also you can head to our main website to find out more. We will communicate all updates including last minute changes via these channels, unless of course it is a Shabbat or Yom Tov. Should you wish to speak with the Rabbi or a member of the team please contact the office via office@arkcentre.com.au or phone 8658 4044
