On this page, you'll find the broad-overview of resources and statements regarding this year's High Holiday observance from the various Jewish denominational movements and entities.
If you know of additional resources that should be added here or find anything to be amiss, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Some of the resources, particularly those provided by the URJ, may require a password/login. However, the URJ has made the password-protected webinars and information available to all of our communities - thus you will notice that some of the pages in this area of our website are password-protected, and we ask you not share these resources publicly.
