2022 High Holy Days:

Dear Friends,

We look forward to celebrating 5783 together and in-person.  Details of our 2022 High Holy Day plans will be on this page later this summer.

2020 High Holy Day Favorite Moments from Members:

“We thoroughly enjoyed services.”

– Robin Greenwald 

“...best part...Torah-cam...to see the actual text was very meaningful.” 

– Blair Haas 

“Rabbi Vann’s sermons”

– Carla Newberry 

“Kol Nidre service.  It was beautiful as usual...I could see each participant close up on my screen.”

– Rene Klein 

“Loved the music for the holidays. Background music, cello player playing in the sanctuary, both choirs and able to see their facial expressions up close.”

– Ellyn Ross 

“We also appreciated Rabbi Vann’s and Deb Rogers’ contributions to the services, the beautiful backdrops, and the personal journeys that were shared.”

- Sue and Rudi Hoffman 

Word Cloud - from chats shared by our members and guests:

Always meaningful.

The High Holy Days are eternal, central to our faith, and beautiful markers on the path from one year to the next. The High Holy Day season is rooted in community practices and individual traditions.

COVID-19 impacted the High Holy Days in 2020 just as it’s changed everyday life. Different, however, didn't mean that the moments to stand in awe were less profound or the opportunities to come together any less inspirational. 

The sections and links below show that our 2020 High Holy Days were just as thoughtful, joyful, and creative as what you’ve come to expect from Suburban Temple – Kol Ami.
