In preparation for, and in observance and celebration of, the High Holy Days, join Rabbi Avi Libman, Ariel Moritz, Mark Lazar, Brianah Caplan and your Beth El family as we celebrate Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur together through familiar services and new experiences.
We will provide families, children, teens and parents multiple paths for Jewish living and learning. There will be opportunities to connect with community, learn as a family, and reflect individually. We offer you a range of experiences including online services, interactive activities, independent learning content, and small-group in-person encounters.
A new setting creates new opportunities to observe and celebrate the High Holy Days. Which parts of the day are most meaningful to you and your family? Which parts have you never understood but want to explore further? As we celebrate from our homes, we offer more diverse ways to celebrate, reflect, learn and connect to ourselves and others. We invite you to try something new this year as you reflect on your intentions for a new year.
