High Holy Days 5781/2020

Welcome to The Liberal Jewish Synagogue for the High Holy Day Services 5781. These services are the highlight of our liturgical year, providing time for us to reflect on the past year, on our relationships and what we hold to be significant in our lives.

This year our festival services will look and feel very different from the past, but with the assistance of new technology we very much hope that they will offer reassurance, strength and hope for the coming year.

Please note that to limit screen time, services will be shorter than usual and, as with our Shabbat services, all the music will be pre-recorded by our wonderful musicians.

Although we cannot physically be with each other, for the first time family and friends from all over the UK and from around the world can gather together for our online services.
