These creative liturgical offerings for High Holiday services were developed by a committee of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association:

These offerings are designed to provide a unique experience for our High Holy Day worship during this uniquely challenging moment. Intended for use for remote services using Zoom or another platform, they are limited to 90 minutes in length. We have not included sermons, divrei Torah, or any scriptural readings, assuming that different communities will want to add those at different points and to different degrees. Though these services are designed to be used as a whole and are inclusive of the liturgy we recommend, we are also providing them in a format that will allow borrowing, excerpting and use alongside a Mahzor or within services you are designing for your community.

With prayers of gratitude to the Source of Creativity and with the sincere desire that these be of use at this challenging moment.
