High Holidays

The Difference-- Our services are Zoom hybrid

  • Services are hybrid; ie available on Zoom as well as in-person. 
  • While this began as a response to Covid, we have been finding that this has made our services & programs more
    accessible to people who have moved out of town  — like a woman  living in Mississippi!
  • To accommodate the more limited attention spans of Zoom participants, we have shortened our services accordingly

In 2020, we adapted our High Holiday services to meet the challenges of the COVID pandemic — creating a meaningful Jewish experience to come together as a community.

For those of you participating via Zoom, a mahzor will be made available electronically via screenshare. Alternatively, if you would like to borrow a physical mahzor, we will have them available (a $40 refundable deposit is required).

Like most shuls, fees for High Holiday tickets help maintain the synagogue on a year-round basis. We encourage people to become members. This includes a High Holiday ticket for single membership (two for family memberships).

Even if you just come for the High Holidays, your contribution goes a long way to support the Jewish community in downtown Boston. The additional cost over the seat-only price is only a few dollars a month.
