Resource Page for the Community

The High Holidays are a special and important time of year for the Jewish people. It is a time to restart and focus on being the best we can be in the year to come.  It is a time to make T’shuvah (return) to the best version of ourselves, to ask for forgiveness for our sins, and to forgive those who have wronged us. It is a time for a fresh new start and to celebrate the birthday of the world.  


This year is going to look different than years in the past.  This page is here to offer you resources on how to connect with local synagogues as well as wonderful online resources to connect with other communities as well as creating your own family rituals and High Holiday Seders at home.  


We hope this page is helpful to you in creating a meaningful High Holidays for your family this year.  And we wish you all a very sweet, happy, and healthy year to come!
