The High Holidays 5781/2020

Support Barnert Temple's Free Will Campaign

Since we had to close our building in early March, our members and the wider community have been engaging through our Shabbat services, holiday observances, classes, and other offerings… in record numbers.  Here at Barnert Temple, we have been living our Jewish traditions creatively and meaningfully.

Given all that we know about how COVID-19 spreads, and all that we do not yet know, our High Holiday services and experiences will be shared on a digital platform this year.  There is simply no safe way to fill our Sanctuary and Social Hall with people and song.

We have been busy planning for remote High Holiday experiences for months.  

  • Rabbi Steiner has been crafting unique service experiences that will each lift up particular and holiday-specific themes.  These services will vary in format and length — allowing us to experience both the formality we expect and the connection we long for.
  • Rabbi Steiner, Marina Voronina, and Janet Montroy have been working on the anchoring and transformational music, which needs to be recorded and produced in advance of the holidays.
  • We are implementing creative and meaningful ways to honor our Barnert Temple leaders and supporters.

We look forward to sharing the High Holidays with you.  Click on the links below for all of the information you need to be part of our unique Barnert High Holiday experience.
