THIS IS YOUR 5781 HIGH HOLY DAY JOURNEY

 

With all the uncertainties that surround us these days, what remains constant is our ability to enter the High Holy Days on a path toward forgiveness, repentance, and renewal. As we prepare for the Days of Awe, our community of Temple Israel of Boston may not gather in-person in large crowds, but we have many pathways that bring us together.

“At the heart of Temple Israel is the search for true connection: to ourselves, to others, and to something bigger than ourselves. Now, more than ever, Temple Israel holds us in its heart. I am so grateful to “see” and hear our clergy, our teachers, our fellow members virtually and be uplifted together through creativity, optimism, energy and compassion.”
