High Holiday Service Video from Jewish Family Service

Since the Jewish Family Service (JFS) volunteer para-chaplains are not able to lead services in residential communities for older adults this year, JFS created a High Holiday video service for use during the COVID-19 pandemic. The video, which is a combined and abbreviated Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur service, is easy to follow, filled with beautiful music and shofar blowing, and can be watched all at once or split during the two holidays.

We wish we could all worship together this year and hope that this video service brings comfort, peace, and a sense of community to residents of older adult communities and anyone else who wishes to watch it.

Teshuva is the Jewish way to pay our ‘sin taxes.’ Aveira is one of the Hebrew words for transgression. In my mind, it resonates with the English word, ‘over.’
