This year's High Holy Day experience will be unlike any other. Like years past, we will gather together as a community, but this year, for the first time, we will gather virtually so that we can continue to prioritize the health and safety of each and every member of our community.

Things will look and feel different. But, we pledge that the experiences we are providing will not be just another livestream or Zoom. We are committed to creating interactive, powerful, meaningful, and inviting ways for you and your loved ones to welcome 5781 and journey together through the Days of Awe.

We recognize that our decision is conservative, but your health and safety and that of our clergy, staff, and the entire community remain paramount.

So this year, instead of welcoming you into our spiritual home at WHC to Seek the Sacred, we will come to you. Our High Holy Day experiences are open to the community, and registration is required for all services and study sessions that will be held over Zoom.

If you are not a member of WHC, please click here to let us know you will be joining us for the High Holy Days this year.
