Mickve Israel Congregation to Live Stream High Holiday Services
SAVANNAH, Georgia (WTOC) – Congregation Mickve Israel has announced that its services for the upcoming holiday season will be broadcast live.
While the congregation initially planned a ‘hybrid season of worship for the holiday season’, the decision to broadcast live services comes amid growing cases of COVID-19 and demand from the mayor of Savannah Van Johnson on Tuesday that places of worship reconsidered holding in-person events.
Members of the congregation who participate in the services will be allowed into the sanctuary with their spouses and partners. Everyone else will be broadcasting live services on YouTube.
You can find the full schedule of events below. All services and events will be streamed live on www.youtube.com/mickveisraelsavannah, unless otherwise specified.
