All services also have online options.

Spencer Reichman, our special guest soloist, Adam Philley and his High Holy Day choir, and Rabbi Jana have recorded High Holy Day music for this year's services.

Other parts of the service will be available on YouTube as separate selections in case you want to watch them again, or do a "choose your own" service in a special High Holy Day Parts of Service Playlist. Go to the B'nai Zion YouTube Channel for details.
