High Holy Days 5781 / 2020, Online, Saturday, 19. September 2020

Shalom Friends, 


Because of this year's unique circumstances, Neshamah is presenting an innovative menu of options for the High Holy Days.


Your ticket entitles you to participation in some or all of the High Holy Days experiences listed below.


Once your ticket order is received, a Neshamah team member will call you to review the options and take your reservations for specific dates and events.


Please be assured that Neshamah will be following the latest CDC guidelines and strictly implementing health and safety precautions at all in-person events.


We thank you for your openness to this year’s new format and pray we all find comfort and inspiration during this holy time.

One Neshamah tradition that doesn’t need to change … we will meet at our favorite beach spot to make Havdalah, break the fast and sound the final shofar blast together.

Option 3. Day of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur 


On the actual dates of our holy days, Neshamah will broadcast a video presentation. These videos will be a combination of prayer, music and learning with your clergy along with some some creative elements we hope will inspire and engage you.

4. Elul & You - Learning Opportunities for Kids and Adults


The Hebrew month of Elul (leading up to the new year on Rosh Hashanah) is meant to be a time of personal reflection and growth. This year, let’s shift the holidays’ focus from our usual big communal gatherings to smaller, personal learning and growth that can make a real impact on how we live our everyday lives.

Neshamah will be offering weekly classes with Rabbi Amy, Cantor Stephanie, Master Teacher Lori Neiberg, Musical Director Sharon Shear and others to enrich your month of Elul.

Kids are invited to a series of Sunday Zoom session with Neshamah faculty to explore the traditions and rituals of our Jewish holidays.
