Once you get to our YouTube page, you will see the top video with a "LIVE" icon (during the service, and a few minutes beforehand); just click on that to watch.
 
If you are logged in with your Gmail account (YouTube is a subsidiary of Google), you can participate in the live chat below the video. (At times Rabbi Hannah may invite you to post in the live chat; but you'll never be required to.) If you don't already have a Gmail account, you can sign up for one here.
 
An online version of the Hill Havurah Machzor is available hereAnd you can find a special supplement focused on racial justice -- originally crafted a couple years ago by Rachel Conway and Virginia Spatz in consultation with Rachel Faulkner -- here, along with a new supplementary text here

A Shavuot Celebration for All Ages!

Our Shavuot Celebration with our friends from Bet Mishpachah was engaging and fun for all ages. After enjoying some socializing and plenty of bagels, cream cheese, cheesecake, and other treats outside, most of the adults moved inside for a dramatic reading of the Book of Ruth, followed by a discussion of what makes a "torah family." Most of the kids remained outdoors for some creative, energetic hands-on learning and celebrating. It was wonderful that so many of us could come together for this special day.

 

 

A Marvelous Lag B'Omer Picnic!

It was a glorious evening for our Lag B'Omer picnic in Garfield Park. There was an ample array of food and beverages, and good spirits all around. The kids particularly enjoyed the campfire, toy archery sets, and kite flying. It was so nice to all come together and reignite this annual Hill Havurah tradition, which had been cancelled by Covid the past two years.

A Fun-Filled Purim Party!

We were so pleased that so many of you (well over 200!) attended Wednesday night's Purim party at City-State Brewing Co. (thank you, James and Melinda Warner, and the terrific City-State staff). It was multifaceted fun for all ages, featuring: a full throated Purim spiel (kol hakavod to Dan Rogger, Keiana Mayfield, Allison Ackerman, Joe Hurowitz, Lou Perwien, and Sam Glaisyer!); a Purim Charity Cake/Pie Raffle; face painting, crown making, grogger making, and mishloach manot making stations; the megillah reading (kol hakavod to Michael Allen, Laurie Solnik, and Yosh Halberstam!); a plethora of eye catching costumes; a wide variety of hamantaschen and other yummy food; and the finest beer DC has to offer.

It was wonderful to all be together in person, with masks worn primarily for celebratory (not Covid) purposes -- and smiles visible all around!
