This year's High Holidays are like no other –  in Israel and around the globe, the coronavirus pandemic has restricted or prevented communal and family gatherings – from meals to synagogue worship. Traditions are upended, and for some, the joy that comes with the holidays is tempered by the emotional, physical and economic challenges posed by the pandemic. At the same time, the difficult situation presents an opportunity to use technology and creativity to connect Jews to each other and provide an enriching experience. The Beit Avi Chai cultural and education center in Jerusalem has created an online platform, Open the Gates, offering an array of original, diverse content meant to enhance this year’s holidays.  The programming includes music, podcasts, lectures, cooking presentations, museum visits and more. The online content is free, available for download and streaming, with materials in Hebrew and in English. Among the English-language programming is a podcast series, Hineni, hosted by Rabbi Mishael Zion, director of the Mandel Program for Leadership in Jewish Culture, and co-founder of the Klausner Minyan in Jerusalem. The series features four episodes for the High Holidays period. Rabbi Zion spoke with KAN reporter Naomi Segal about the podcast series, the first episode of which is Selichot: The Wake Up Call.
