High Holiday Information

TIP High Holiday Services and events will include a combination of live-streamed services from our sanctuary (via Zoom and Facebook Live) as well outdoor experiences. Erev Rosh Hashanah begins with a Rosh Hashanah Seder over Zoom. Participants will receive a prayer guide to use during this event as well as instructions on how to prepare and what foods to have available for the seder. Together, we will bless the new year with familiar High Holiday tunes, prayers, and culinary delights.

Rosh Hashanah Day 1 begins with a guided meditation followed by a modified sanctuary service live-streamed through Zoom, led by Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman and Cantorial Soloist Kochava Munro. Parts of the service will include pre-recorded segments highlighting our community members. Stay tuned for the invitations to pre-record and participate in the creation of these services. Day 2 of Rosh Hashanah will include a shorter morning sanctuary service (again, live-streamed), followed by a Drive-Through Shofar Service in our parking lot and Tashlikh in several locations.

Yom Kippur services will include similar elements during the day. All services will be led by Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman and Cantorial Soloist Kochava Munro, who have been working together for the past month to craft meaningful and beautiful prayer experiences. Please check our synagogue website for updated program information, service times, High Holiday resources, links to virtual services, and registration details.

May 5781 be a sweet, healthy and transformative New Year!

With Blessings,
Rabba Kaya
