What changes should I expect at this  year's High Holiday celebrations?
You may have heard about some changes taking place in our High Holiday celebrations this year. Over the next few weeks, we will be telling you a little more about them. First, we're using a new Machzor (High Holiday prayer book), which is much more accessible and engaging than the previous one, with modern insights and translations. Please arrange to get yours today! They will also be available at the Life After Hate event. Stay tuned for more news about exciting new changes in the High Holidays at Beth Tikvah
