A Sense of Community that Feels Stronger Than Ever!

This year's High Holidays were unlike anything we could have imagined.  They required everyone involved - from clergy to musicians to lay volunteers - to build an experience from the ground up.  Services, music and worship were reimagined.  New technologies were implemented.  New procedures were designed.  This year presented the ultimate challenge of finding ways to make sacred traditions possible in totally new ways.  All aspects of our High Holidays this year were a labor of love of epic proportions.

Thank you to all who participated in this year's worship and observances and to all who helped make this year's experience possible. 
Barnert is not only adapting and responding.  Barnert is thriving and reinventing.

Shanah Tovah Umetukah!
