About Celebrating High Holidays at Home

What is High Holidays At Home?

High Holidays at Home is a platform for DIY Jewish New Year rituals, curated especially for celebrating meaningfully at home. This site is managed by Recustom, a nonprofit dedicated to helping you mix and match Jewish rituals to make them your own.

Create and publish your own Elul reflections, Rosh Hashanah seder, Yom Kippur rituals, Sukkot experience and more. Mix and match blessings, songs, videos, art, meditations and more to craft an experience that reflects your Jewish values and your spiritual practice. Then download and print, or email and share.

Elul Blessings

As the year winds down, Elul gives us an entire month to reflect on the past year - the good, the challenging, the beautiful and the difficult. Discover blessings and activities to guide you through a little spiritual accounting. 

Rosh Hashanah Seder

Seders aren’t only for Passover! Start the new year with a Rosh Hashanah seder full of symbolic foods, blessings of joy and opportunities for mindfulness. Raise a glass for those gathered with you, and explore the themes of the holiday. 

Yom Kippur Rituals

On Yom Kippur, we leave behind our everyday lives and get really deep in our relationship with the Divine. Thankfully, you don’t have to take the plunge alone - our tradition has rituals to ease you into remembering your loved ones, forgiving others, atoning for your mistakes and committing to doing better. 

DIY Sukkot

Sukkot invites us to make our home a holy space, with a door wide enough to welcome guests - whether in-person, metaphorically or on video. Our sukkah reconnects us to nature with a roof that lets in the starlight and with symbols of the harvest. Whether you celebrate Sukkot with a structure in your backyard or with a pillow fort in your living room, this is a time for joy! 

Other Ways to Celebrate

Looking for other ways to make the High Holiday season meaningful? We have you covered - from a nature-based Tashlich ritual to cast away your sins, to a Simchat Torah dance party, a New Year for the Animals ceremony and more!
