High Holy Days Covid Guidelines

Jewish law obligates us to take measures to protect our own health and the health of our fellow community members around us.  Our priority is to make decisions that will keep our congregation as safe and healthy as possible. Considering the new Delta variant, we changed our guidelines for High Holy Days attendance. 

We feel the following measures will significantly minimize the risk of spread within our community. 

  • Anyone over the age of 12 who participates in-person must be fully vaccinated. 

  • Children under the age of 12 who are not eligible for the vaccination can attend in-person services with a parent/guardian. 

  • Masks are required for all in-person attendees, regardless of vaccination status. 

  • If you or your child over 12 has a medical exemption for the vaccine, please contact our temple office at 704-987-9980.

All services will also be offered by Zoom.  Links for  Yom Kippur will be sent the between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. 

Services will be held at Davidson United Methodist Church and Temple Kol Tikvah.

Please review the schedule for specific location information and addresses.  

High Holy Day services are a benefit of membership and tickets are not required. Full-time Davidson College students are welcome at no charge.  

If you are not a member and would like to attend please click the non-member rsvp form below. 


Our Book of Remembrance provides an opportunity to keep the memories of our departed loved ones close to us during this season. A copy will be distributed to families that contribute to the book this year.  

Deadline for submission is September 7th.
