High Holiday Resource Guide

High Holidays 5783 begins sundown September 25, 2022, an autumn on the heels of what has been an emotional and trying year. We as Jews have an ancient ritual that gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect. The Jewish High Holidays are meant to be a radical time. Set against the backdrop of our mortality, these Days of Awe are designed to crack open our hearts allowing us to  address the pressing needs of our lives, communities and the world. As you begin to plan for this thoughtful time of year, Reboot has curated offerings from our work that we feel capture the themes of this moment. From grief and loss to democracy and human rights, from Sarah and Hagar to Kol Nidre and Ashamnu, the interactive material is grounded in our collective Jewish stories and traditions while encompassing our shared universal themes. Like everything Reboot does, the materials are designed to complement or supplement your traditional holiday experiences, helping you to personalize your High Holiday and spark meaningful conversations and actions.

The materials you can download here include:

  • Video Playlist: Contains a selection of video highlights from our 2020 Higher Holiday collaboration with Hillel International.
