VIA ZOOM: Rosh HaShanah Schmoozefest By Neighborhood

Friday, September 18, 2020 29 Elul 5780


Please scroll to bottom of page to register. A Zoom link will be emailed to you.

One of the things we really cherish about everyone being together in one place on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur is being able to say hello to people we may not have seen for a while. Reconnecting is an important part of the experience. This year that will be harder to do virtually, but we have arranged special opportunities to connect. 

The first, on this eve of Rosh HaShanah after services, we will have Zoom rooms by neighborhood for you to join and wish everyone a Shanah Tovah. A board member will be there to welcome you and to facilitate conversation.

When you register you will be sent a confirmation email with Zoom links for all of the neighborhood groups below so that you can attend more than one if you wish. Feel free to connect with people in your neighborhood and then jump onto a different Zoom with friends in another. The choice is yours. We look forward to schmoozing together!
