Join Us This Sukkot

Posted by Recustom

As Sukkot winds down, I'm thinking about both joy and impermanence. Joy as I celebrate with loved ones, visiting their sukkah under the stars. Joy in the seasons shifting, nature's transformation as we move through our own teshuvah, or return. These days of Sukkot remind us of what we truly wish to prioritize in our lives. 


Here at and HighHolidays@Home, we're prioritizing building a joyful community of DIY Judaism. A community that centers accessible and everybody-friendly ways of connecting with tradition and making it our own. A community that is truly revolutionary and inclusive. Won't you join us?



Help us celebrate the impermanence of Sukkot by supporting the development of a movement that's truly long-lasting with HighHolidays@Home. Our sites are free to use, and your donation makes it possible for DIY Judaism to be accessible to millions of other users from all walks of Jewish life. 


With your support, we can build a sustainable Jewish future that's truly creative and connective for everyone.

We Need You!

Posted by Recustom

Yom Kippur starts tonight—and if you're feeling unprepared, you're not alone. The 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur always seem to fly by. As the gates are closing, I'm finding solace on HighHolidays@Home with this Yom Kippur Ritual guide. If you're hosting a break fast, plan ahead with our Break Fast booklet, and for an alternative to services download the Annual Review guide from our partners at Shomer Collective.

And there's still time to connect with friends and family through joining or hosting a gathering this Sukkot. Looking for something in-person? Check out this weekend yoga retreat and find your inner zen. Need something virtually accessible? Mark the end of the shmita year in community.

Lastly, HighHolidays@Home wouldn't be the same without you—yes, you! When you bring your creativity and your passion to our site, you are helping to revolutionize Jewish life. Will you go one step further and make a donation? HighHolidays@Home is free to use, and your support enables our platform to be accessible for all.

Thank you for considering a donation so we can continue building these opportunities for customized, creative rituals across Jewish life.

Watch the Webinar—Annual Review: Writing Your Yom Kippur Confession

Posted by Recustom


The rituals of Yom Kippur – fasting, wearing white, refraining from acts of pleasure, reciting prayers of confession, function as an annual dress rehearsal for death. In the field of psychology, “positive life review” is a tool used to promote reflection on one’s past in order to make peace with the present. Using our own positive life review as well as a reflection on our mortality, our partners at Shomer collective will guide us through creating personal Yom Kippur confessions to prepare for entering the new year.

To do the positive life review exercise with Rabbi Melanie Levav, explore Shomer Collective's booklet Annual Review: DIY Yom Kippur Confession

Shomer Collective recommends checking out the HighHolidays@Home version of the Al Chet prayer with positive and negative confessions, the website A Mitzvah to Eat and a reflection on making Yom Kippur meaningful when you aren't able to fast.

Watch the Webinar: Teshuvah: Return to Your Inner Creativity

Posted by Recustom

Return to yourself this High Holiday season by getting in touch with your innate creativity. Creativity lives in all of us, but the pressures of daily life can sometimes get in the way of our creative expression. In this webinar, our community manager Ryn Silverstein guides you through practices of movement and craft making to cultivate a greater sense of connection to the creative depths within.

For more creative mindfulness prompts and rituals, check out our High Holidays booklet, Turn & Return

Zine-making steps: 

  • Step 1: Fold your sheet of paper in half. Fold it again into quarters, and then one more time so that it's folded into eighths. 

  • Step 2: Open your paper so that it is folded in half. Cut halfway across the middle from the fold. When you open your paper it should have a slit in the middle.

  • Step 3: Fold your paper lengthwise (along the crease that has the slit). Hold the paper at either end, then push the ends in toward each other. The sections should fold into each other to form an eight-page booklet.

  • Step 4: Now it’s time for you to fill in your blank booklet and turn it into a zine! How you fill it in is completely up to you. You can plan or sketch out your content before making it final, or just wing it. Use the basic supplies only or add extra elements. If you want to just write and not use images, that’s cool too.

Optional zine prompts: 

  • What’s on your heart? 

  • What feels alive for you?

  • What's one thing you’d like to turn towards this High Holiday Season? 

  • What's one thing you’d like to leave behind? 

  • How would you most like to feel this High Holiday Season? 

  • What's holding you back from feeling that way? 

  • What's one thing you can do to support yourself to feel that way? 

  • What's one new holiday tradition you’d like to try this season, and why?

From Adva Chattler & Hila Ratzabi of Ritualwell: 

Blessed are you, Yah, Mother of Creation, who blesses us with your inspiration, to partner with you in the act of creation.
