How can we celebrate the High Holidays in a time of social distancing? What does the coronavirus pandemic teach us about Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot?

In “HINENI”, the new podcast of Beit Avi Chai in Jerusalem, Rabbi Mishael Zion invites innovative spiritual leaders from across America to discover together how to enter this Jewish New Year. Through story and song, text and discussion, we will seek to build a gate to a sweeter new year.


Where will we get to hear the sound of the Shofar this year – and what will it mean to us? Join world-reknowned Spiritual leader and author Rabbi Arthur Green, and President of Boston’s Hebrew College, Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld, for a heartfelt conversation about the many meanings of the Shofar. Using the insights of poetry and Chassidism, personal stories and sweet family recipes, these two master teachers share insights for facing this season of crises – and drowning it in sweetness.


Rabbi Mishael Zion is director of the Mandel Program for Leadership in Jewish Culture, and co-founder of the Klausner Minyan in Jerusalem. He is the co-author of “A Night to Remember: The Haggadah of Contemporary Voices” and author of “Esther: A New Israeli Commentary”, a project of the AVI CHAI Foundation.
