High Holidays 2021 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.

We will gather virtually, due to health concerns, joining together in our virtual tent, celebrating community and connection especially while we are apart. 


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