THE HIGH HOLY DAYS 5781

RE-IMAGINING, RE-DISCOVERING AND RE-EXPERIENCING

We are thrilled to bring you an array of opportunities to make these High Holy Days meaningful and inspiring to you and your family.  Services will be open to everyone, introducing the world to our congregational family.

Because of the pandemic and to help keep everyone safe, Congregation of Reform Judaism will be holding High Holy Day services and activities via Zoom and Livestream. 

Our services have no walls!  Here are three ways to join us...

  1. CRJ Members log onto crjorlando.org/hhdzoom for member-only Zoom content, like discussions with Rabbi Engel, Meditation service, and more.
  2. If you are not a member of CRJ, consider becoming a High Holy Days(HHD) supporter for a donation of $180.  You will have access to all Zoom HHD programs listed below, as well as sermon discussions with the Rabbi and more.  Click here to become a High Holy Day Supporter.
  3. EVERYONE Watch our livestreamed services at crjorlando.org.  Services will be streamed right from our homepage.  Links for services & discussions that are open to members & HHD Supporters can be found at crjorlando.org/hhdzoom (meditation service, sermon discussions, etc)

Details are below.  Please keep reading...

How can I follow the services?

You can follow along on the screen as all the words will be displayed, or if you have a set of Mishkan HaNefesh (the gold and silver High Holy Days books), you can use that, as well.  The page numbers will appear on the screen during the services.

Where can I find service times, program information, and other High Holy Day information?
You can download this PDF High Holy Day 5781 Packet or you can scroll below and click on the images of individual programs and service time links.
