Join us for inclusive, innovative and truly egalitarian 2020/5781 High Holiday services.
Be part of our community. Buy your membership today.
It is more important than ever to reaffirm our place in our community, and renew our Shir Libeynu memberships or become a new member. Membership supports our monthly Shabbat services and other special services and events throughout the year. As a community we are facing many challenges. We are living through a global pandemic. Our beloved founder and leader, Rabbi Goldberg, is retiring. If there was ever a year to buy a membership, it is this year! Memberships will help keep our community together and strong.
This year’s High Holiday services will be led by Rabbi Dara Lithwick and our Chazzan and Musical Director, Daniela Gesundheit. We are continuing to plan for virtual High Holiday offerings. As we cannot gather safely in large numbers, it is best for us to focus on creating amazing virtual services. The schedule will be available closer to the High Holidays.
Please support our community by buying your Shir Libeynu membership today.
Your membership includes:
- Invitation to all Shir Libeynu presentations and workshops
- A vote at the Annual General Meeting and any other membership meetings
- Free membership for all children under 13
- Biweekly or monthly email newsletters
