Celebrating the High Holy Days with Beth Tzedec

This year's High Holy Day celebrations were profoundly different experiences for Jewish communities around the world. With COVID-19 pandemic protocols restricting public gatherings, families and congregations created new ways to reflect, share and daven together as small groups in backyards and homes or as virtual congregations on mobile devices.

You can also still access all of our On-Demand services and videos, such as the Short and Sweet and Family services, and  the pre-recorded segments such as the Avodah and Martyrology services. In addition,

We have also included special pre-recorded greetings and prayers from local, national and international leaders and dignitaries including Mayor John Tory, Premier Doug Ford, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
