L’Shanah Tovah! Please join us for a traditional High Holiday observed in a rather untraditional way.

We invite everyone–members, their families, friends, students and community members–to join us for livestreamed High Holiday services. Rabbi Spivak and Cantor Hendler will lead services from the Congregation of Moses, with some congregants participating who have pre-recorded their parts.

We are very grateful to all participants, whether you are joining us from home or are part of the live minyan at each service.

Simply click on the livestream window to join services. You do not need to sign up in advance to attend.

We will be using Machzor Lev Shalem for the holiday prayer book. If you do not have a copy of the book, digital copies are available here for a nominal cost.
