Our “kissing cousins” at the Society for Humansistic Judaism will help you find meaningful Humanistic High Holiday services here: https://shj.org/find-high-holidays

The delightfully irreverent and inclusive JewBelong will have not only services, but coloring books and other resources; for a taste and information see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAUScfUMgGQ These have the advantage of being on-demand, so viewable on your schedule.

Judaism Your Way, an interdenominational movement in Denver, led by Reconstructionist Rabbi Brian Field, conducts a full set of services filled with music and meaning; register for the free links at https://events.eventzilla.net/e/high-holidays-with-judaism-your-way-2138805359

Rabbi Michael Lerner of Tikkun and the Network of Spiritual Progressives conducts services in San Francisco. These are not free, but the cost is based on your income. https://www.tikkun.org/hhd2021/

I (your current Board President) attend services conducted by activist and former Ambassador Hannah Rosenthal of Madison, Wisconsin, which are rooted in Reform Judaism but highly accessible to all. The Gates of Heaven YouTube channel will be ready just before each service would normally start and will be available online forever more. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ1en-gikiFrGVoMOayj7eA/featured
