B’Chavana High Holidays Services

High Holidays Services Information

B’Chavana is a new paradigm Jewish spiritual community – a vibrant, musical, and meaningful expression of what is right for today: Relevant, Intentional, and Inspiring.

We invite you to start off the New Year on a high note. Join Rabbi Marc J. Belgrad & cantorial soloist Randi Simon as family, friends and the community find a unique connection with a High Holiday experience filled with unfettered celebration and reflection.

Last year, we were faced with an unprecedented situation of having to present our services in a fully remote way, and we were overjoyed by the number of people who joined the services via Zoom. We “broadcast” to you from space lovingly donated by our friends at Chicago Jewish Funerals.

This year, you have a choice of either online or in-person services. This year again our friends at Chicago Jewish Funerals have lovingly donated space to us. What this means is that you can join as you wish – either in person or online via Zoom.

We will have socially distanced seating – you and your loved ones can of course sit in close proximity and there will be appropriate spacing between groups. To attend in person, you must have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (honor system). Guidelines from the CDC and the State of Illinois for mask-wearing and other procedures will be followed.
