Congregation Mickve Israel to livestream High Holiday services
SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Congregation Mickve Israel has announced that its services for the upcoming High Holidays will be livestreamed.
While the congregation had initially planned for a “Hybrid High Holiday worship season,” the decision to livestream services comes amid rising cases of COVID-19 and Savannah Mayor Van Johnson’s request on Tuesday that houses of worship reconsider holding in-person events.
Congregation members who are participating in services will be allowed in the sanctuary with their spouses and partners. All others will livestream services on YouTube.
You can find the full schedule of events below. All services and events will be livestreamed at www.youtube.com/mickveisraelsavannah except where otherwise noted.
