Friends of the University:
Shalom dear friends of the university:
Regretfully we must inform you that due to ongoing risk and concern related to the pandemic, we are unable to host our open High Holy Day Services this year. We will be offering what we hope will be a compelling and spirited High Holy Day experience for current GU students, faculty, and staff only.
Although we will miss being together, we encourage you to pursue one of the many other meaningful opportunities in the DMV to attend High Holy day services and events. Please know that you and your families are in our hearts and prayers for a sweet, joyful, and healthy 5782.
For more information regarding where to attend services, we refer you to The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington or call 888 246-1818.
