High Holidays 5782 with Fringes and Tikkun Olam Chavurah

In 2021/5782 most of our services will again be online. We’d hoped to have some events in person, but the rise of the COVID Delta variant has made that unsafe. Next year, in person!


Our communities don’t require tickets of any kind for our services – but we do need donations from those who can to pay our staff, provide tech, and support Tikkun Olam Chavurah’s social justice work throughout the year.


High Holidays 2021/5782 Schedule

Our High Holiday services are a joining of two groups – Tikkun Olam Chavurah, a social justice activism community based in Jewish values, led by Rabbi Linda Holtzman, and Fringes: a feminist, non-zionist havurah, co-led by Elliott batTzedek and Karen Escovitz (aka Otter). Our services balance traditional and new liturgies, based in Reconstructionist tradition, with our social justice values right up front. We are proud to be part of the rising tide of explicitly anti-zionist Jewish religious and spiritual communities.

Sukkot Plan 
Sunday, September 26, 2 pm at outdoors/in-person at Rabbi Linda Holtzman’s home in Mt. Airy
We’re planning to do the beautiful water-pouring / beating the ground with willow branches ritual of Hoshanah Rabbah, calling for a year of plenty and protection. The goats will be back (yes, live sweet goats from the Philly Goat Project). Masks are strictly required.

As we’re planning for this year’s services, this is definitely one of our theme songs
