High Holy Days

The B'nai Or Steering Committee is pleased to announce that this year's High Holy Days Services will be led by

Rabbi Suri Krieger and Rabbi Lea-h Campolo
with assistance from other B'nai Or Leaders, Members, and Musicians


IMPORTANT UPDATE (8/22/2021): Due to the recent increase in COVID Delta variant cases, the B'nai Or Steering Committee has made the decision to limit the number of in-person services to the (1) Members ONLY 2nd Rosh Hashanah Service; and (2) Yom Kippur Morning Services (open to Members and Guests).

GUESTS and MEMBERS: In order to properly plan we ask that you pre-register by completing, and mailing for receipt before September 1, either a MEMBERSHIP Registration form or GUEST Registration form found on this webpage.

Even though B'nai Or of Boston's High Holy Days Services will have a different look to them this year, our High Holy Days services leaders, Rabbi Suri Krieger and Rabbi Lea-h Campolo, are working hard to assure that the "feel" of our spiritual, connecting, and creative services remains unchanged. All of our High Holy Days Services will be multi-accessible and interactive via ZOOM.

To assure, as much as possible, the safety of our members and guests, we will be following recommended COVID guidelines during our in-person services: (1) vaccinations; (2) distancing ("pods" are excluded); (3) masking - all attendees; and (4) submission of confidential contact tracing (completion required before admission).

MEMBERS & GUESTS: ZOOM access information will be sent upon receipt of REGISTRATION. As always, GUESTS are always welcome at our services. See below for GUEST and MEMBER Registration forms and fees.
