High Holy Days 5781/2020


Although we cannot be together physically, we can be together in time. We can enter these moments of High Holy Days prayer and reflection as a community. We can do what has previously been impossible; for our entire congregation to be together at the same service. 

For the safety and security of all of our congregants and staff, we will be producing outstanding online services that will be meaningful and uplifting. We are already at work on a set of High Holy Day worship offerings to inspire you in powerful and creative ways. Though it pains us not to be together, we are excited for you to see what our clergy are creating along with some of the congregation’s best TV producers and crews. We promise it will be quite special.

Being apart will never keep us from raising our voices in prayer together.

Your High Holy Days tickets will be associated with your email address. Make sure we have a good email address for you, as well as permission to email you. You can update us online at www.wbtla.org/profile-update. For additional questions please contact Esther Cohen at ecohen@wbtla.org or 213-835-2132 or our Membership Services at membershipservices@wbtla.org or 213-835-2142.
