Sim Shalom High Holidays move Online

Sim Shalom is an Online Synagogue whose mission is to nurture a Jewish connection through innovative services, creative education and dynamic outreach to the global community.

We are all challenged by Covid 19. And sadly High Holiday Services at "THE BITTER END on Bleeker Street in the Village" will not be possible.
But we have come up with the NEXT BEST THING!
We will be holding Zoom Services with Rabbi Blane and a (socially distanced) jazz trio PLUS- guest Cantors and Rabbis who will join us from around the country to make these High Holy Days the MOST inspirational, musical Services you have ever attended.
You will participate with us online- ask questions in the chat, sing along and say many of the prayers!
WITH THE ADDED BENEFIT, that you get to stay home in your PJ's, safe with family and friends ūüôā
This will be a New Year to remember!
