Virtual Pre-High Holiday Programs

 

This year due to Covid-19, The Jewish Learning Center unfortunately will not be able to hold High Holidays services. We analyzed many different ways to come up with a safe solution, but there simply was not one. However, you should be aware that there are some synagogues in the New York area that are holding services where social distancing is possible. If you need help locating a service, please feel free to email me at ravkalb1@gmail.com.
