Envision High Holy Days at Bet Haverim

Dear CBH Haverim: This has been an unprecedented year which has brought us many challenges and also wonderful opportunities for rethinking about how we can create new and beautiful ways of connecting with one another during this time of the Coronavirus. With the number one priority being dictated by the Jewish value of Pikuach Nefesh, the health and wellbeing of you, our partners, and the goal of using every resource at our disposal to create meaningful and engaging High Holy Day experiences, a High Holy Day Dream Team has been created to imagine what our High Holy Day celebrations would look like this year given that we, after careful reflection, have concluded that our High Holy Day experiences will be on-line.

We have created a vision for the High Holy Days and a draft of possible ways of bringing the High Holy day experiences to our congregation in new ways given the situation this year. I would like to share this link to a google doc with all of you in the congregation so that you can give feedback and share your ideas with us. Here is the link.

I hope you will take the time to reflect on this draft over the month of July and share your comments with us to help us as we plan for an exciting, inspiring and engaging Holy Day experience together.

Many blessings, Rabbi Greg
