Like so many other institutions, Congregation Beth Israel has had to learn quickly how to move our prayer, educational and communal experiences online. It is difficult not to gather with community in the ways we are accustomed. But such is the resiliency and creativity of the Jewish people – we have found new ways to engage and connect. Many have told us how meaningful these efforts have been, how they have erased some of the barriers to participation and brought us, somehow, closer together.
As the summer progresses and, sadly, the pandemic which brought us to this point has not abated, we join with synagogues around the country and the world in recognizing that the High Holidays this year will have to be experienced very differently than it has in the past and are exploring new and creative ways to experience the High Holidays at Congregation Beth Israel through online services.
As the High Holidays approach, please check this page regularly for updated information including our schedule of services and opportunities to connect.
