High Holidays 5781 (2020)

Tikkun Olam Chavurah invites you to our 7th High Holiday Services, co-led by Rabbi Linda Holtzman and Elliott bat Tzedek and Karen Escovitz of Fringes: a feminist, non-zionist havurah. We will all join together as a community to welcome the new year and to take the time that we need to bring our whole selves into the space for spiritual and emotional grounding that the holidays can be. This will al be present in our services and celebrations.

The difference this year is that our services will all be online. We will see each other on a screen and will find ways to connect in both large and small groups that will hold us as we walk together into 5781. Details about each service will be coming soon, but for now, save these dates for the holiday services and celebrations.

Rosh Hashanah
Saturday, September 19
Sunday afternoon, September 20
Kol Nidre
Sunday evening, September 27
Yom Kippur

Services on Zoom take a different form from in-person prayer so there will be changes in the timing and structure of the day to accommodate the medium. Details about each service will come shortly including ways for you to participate in the services.

The changes to our services might feel jarring, but they can also be filled with new possibilities: including people from around the world to teach us and be part of our celebrations, welcoming people in who have never been able to join us before, finding new ways to talk with each other and learn from each other. We are hoping that this year the High Holy Days will give us the spiritual pause we need to walk more firmly into the world, dedicated to making the change we know is needed.
