High Holidays 2020 with Jewish Gateways

Jewish Gateways services are engaging and inclusive, in both English and Hebrew.


Services are warm, creative, honest, and open to all. We invite you to come as you are and connect with what you find meaningful.


No experience is necessary.

Though we cannot gather outdoors beneath our open tent as we usually do, we will join together in our virtual tent, celebrating community especially while we are apart. 


Tune in from your home and invite friends and family across the country to join you!

"We discovered Jewish Gateways' High Holidays, and loved the mix of Hebrew and English, Rabbi Bridget’s excellent commentaries, the beautiful music. Enough tradition but very contemporary, and spoke to us where we are. We felt at home."

"Appreciated openness to interfaith families, LGBT, people of color, people with complicated relationships with their Judaism."
