Call for Submissions: High Holy Day Reader 2020
May 21st 2020

Each year we produce a wonderful booklet of prayer, poetry and reflections for the Days of Awe. This booklet is designed to inspire and enlighten us during the High Holy Days - adding to our Beth Tzedec Congregation experience.

This year we have chosen Olam Hesed Yibaneh: We Build the World on Love, as our theme.

So please - share your stories, poems and other artwork! Especially during these difficult times, it's more critical than ever that we come together to celebrate kindness, hesed, love and shlaymoot as a community.

Submissions need not be original, as long as we can easily obtain permission for publication.

Submissions should meet the following criteria:

·  Essays and stories 500 words or fewer - submitted as a .doc or .docx file

·  Poetry or prayers no longer than 40 lines, or one page – submitted as a .doc or .docx file

·  Visual art in a portrait orientation - submitted as a high resolution JPEG (black and white preferred)

·  Sheet music, no longer than 1 page – submitted as a high resolution JPEG or PDF

Please email your submissions to Linda Marleny Dow at by end of business on August 2, 2020.

Submitted content may be used throughout the year on Beth Tzedec’s website and social media accounts. Please email Linda with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Happy creating!
