High Holy Days 2020 | 5781

Full Schedule of Services

A word about this year’s schedule: We have broken down the High Holiday services into timed segments not longer than 1 hour. Most segments during the daytime services and for Kol Nidre are separated by 5 minute breaks.

All services are abridged this year due to the necessary adjustments for conducting a digital online service.
