There will be some Zoom gatherings that are for members-only, including Torah Services, Rosh Hashanah Seder & Hikes, and Yom Kippur afternoon speaker. You must RSVP for these special events to participate in the Zoom, but you can still watch live from this page or Facebook live without an RSVP.

For the past few years we have prayed from Mishkan Ha'Nefesh, a gorgeous, modern series produced by our friends and colleagues at CCAR - Central Conference of American Rabbis. This year we will once again pray with these machzors. They are available in Flipbook form here. There are separate links for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  You may also want to download the Kindle version to a separate device. All High Holy Day resources can be found here.

Yom Kippur Afternoon Speaker Marra Gad (Race Discussion) | 4:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.
A conversation with  Marra B. Gad addressing racial equality and racial justice in North America as a Jewish issue. Marra’s personal journey is reflected in her memoir, The Color of Love, which she shared. In black spaces, she was not “black enough." In Jewish spaces, she was mistaken for the help, asked to leave, or worse. Even in her own extended family, racism bubbled to the surface. Join Marra for her story and Q&A session, which, in our current climate, is timelier than ever. Reading Marra’s book prior to joining the conversation will enable you as a participant to have a greater takeaway from this program. More information & RSVP here. (members only- all are welcome to watch on YoutubeLive)
