High Holy Days 2020

Shalom! We welcome you to spend the High Holy Days 5781/2020 season with us!

To keep everyone healthy and safe, this year Beit Tikvah will hold all of our services and events on Zoom.

We have numerous opportunities for spiritual engagement during the High Holy Day season. During the Hebrew month of Elul, our ‘stepping stone’ events will involve the mind and senses in the themes of the season. On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, our services will move us toward teshuvah – turning and returning – as the new year begins.

Rabbi Doug Heifetz will lead our services and events with prayer, ritual, study, meditation, discussion, music, art, and reflection on the High Holy Days. Let us use the values of our Jewish tradition to seek peace and consolation in this turbulent world as we gather together virtually in sacred community.

A Message from Rabbi Heifetz

We invite you to join us for the following events and services.
