  • 1. Maybe you can't get off work for the High Holydays,
    both of which fall on a weekday this year.
  • 2. Maybe you're not in the mood this year for two
    major holydays stacked only a week apart.
  • 3. Maybe you are only able to attend one of the two high holydays
    this year and are tearing out your hair (or someone else's hair) trying to decide which one.
  • 4. Maybe you want your cake and eat it too, that is, you prefer
    to do both high holydays in your own community AND you wish you could experience them with Rabbi Miriam and Rabbi Gershon.
  • 5. Maybe you're a congregational rabbi and you want to have a day
    to just soak it all in...and do your own inner work.
