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.

No Sukkot Service
Our sukkot service has been cancelled due to the death of Rabbi Holtzman’s mother-in-law. We’re so sorry, and we look forward to bringing the goats back next year.
As we’re planning for this year’s services, this is definitely one of our theme songs
