CRC Offers Video Streaming of High Holiday Services

Central Reform Congregation is excited to announce that High Holiday services will be live streamed for the first time this year. CRC is unique as it does not require tickets to attend services and offers services at two locations (The Chase Park Plaza and at CRC) to make it easy for members and non-members alike to attend. However, they understand that due to circumstances beyond control, some people cannot physically be there. For those who cannot worship in person because of illness, distance, or any other reason, live streaming might just be the perfect answer. The broadcast dates and times are as follows: • Wednesday, September 24, 8 p.m. Erev Rosh HaShanah Service from The Chase • Thursday, September 25, 10 a.m. Rosh HaShanah Service from The Chase • Thursday, September 25, 10 a.m. Rosh HaShanah Alternative Service from CRC’s sanctuary • Friday, October 3, 8 p.m. Kol Nidre Service from The Chase • Saturday, October 4, 10 a.m. Yom Kippur Service from The Chase • Saturday, October 4, 10 a.m. Yom Kippur Alternative Service from CRC’s sanctuary The streaming video platform, Ustream TV, is a live, interactive broadcast format available to anyone with access to a computer or other internet-connected device. The easiest way to view the live stream is to visit www.centralreform.org and click the “U” button on the lower left side of the page. Please contact Jennifer Bernstein at jenniferb@centralreform.org with any questions or...
