GREETING EACH OTHER FOR REAL – VIRTUALLY!

High Holy Days Photo/Video Project

One of the things we know we will miss the most this year is meeting and greeting each other, whether seeing old friends, making new ones, or greeting folks joining in for the first time.

While nothing is quite like meeting in person for our biggest gatherings of the year, this year we can still show up and see each other.

You are heartily invited to take and submit:

  • A photo of yourself/your household
  • A video for Rosh Hashanah
  • A video for Yom Kippur

All you need is a SMART PHONE, TABLET, or LAPTOP. If you need technical guidance, reach out to elijah@orh.ca


PHOTO INSTRUCTIONS:

Take a photo of you/your whole household including a SIGN with your NAME/S. Save the file with your FAMILY name and email it to elijah@orh.ca


ROSH HASHANAH VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS:

Record a segment of NO MORE THAN 30 SECONDS responding to this query: As I approach this new year of 5781, what are my hopes?

Each household member can record a separate video. Name the file with your FAMILY NAME and FIRST INITIAL followed by _RH (for example, BoltonE_RH) and email it to elijah@orh.ca


YOM KIPPUR VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS:

Record a segment of NO MORE THAN 45 SECONDS responding to this query: As I reflect on this past year and especially recent months, what spiritual lesson am I learning?

Each household member can record a separate video. Name the file with your FAMILY NAME and FIRST INITIAL followed by _YK (for example, BoltonE_YK and email it to elijah@orh.ca


A FEW TECHNICAL SUGGESTIONS:

  • Wait a moment after pressing record before speaking, and pause for a moment before ending the recording
  • Stand close enough to your device to be heard clearly, and take a listen after the recording to ensure that you are audible
  • See if you can frame yourself so that all of your face is visible with a little “head room” above

Submit photos and Rosh Hashanah videos by SEPTEMBER 11

and Yom Kippur videos by September 21.
