Pop up Shul provides everything you need to create a meditative and unique prayer experience in the comfort of your own home, with your own family. Come as you are.  Recharge your spiritual connection in a whole new way- no stained glass or ebony pews needed. Without the externals, you’ll find yourself in a DMC with G-d like never before.

If you have any questions please email me at mlehrfield@joidenver.com.


What will my backyard service look like?

When you sign up to lead a POP UP SHUL you will be asked to choose from 4 types of services:

1.  The Traditional Service: This service is...traditional, English & Hebrew, the songs you know and the prayers that are familiar to you.

2. The Yogi Service: A meditative and experiential program that feels like Rosh Hashana in India.

3. The Family Service: This is for families with young children. Appropriate for all ages, but focused on the young ones.

4. The Millenial Service: A special program designed for families with teenagers and kids in college. It includes great discussions and tools for engaging even the most reluctant.

Will Pop UP SHUL provide any training?

Starting in September we will offer many classes and prep sessions through zoom to get you ready for to lead your own program.

Who leads our POP UP SHUL?

It's up to you. We recommend "sharing the Bimah", But it's completely up to you if it will be led by a grandparent, parent, or even the kids.

Will Pop UP Shul be providing any materials?

Yes, you will receive one of 4 companion boxes along with links for downloads to help make your service engaging and amazing.

Who is coming to my POP UP SHUL?

Only the people you invite. Anyone that you have not been socially distancing from can be there, family, close friends, or anyone you are comfortable inviting.

Will Aish be live streaming the High Holiday Services?

Aish will not be streaming or Zooming services. One of our core values is that we are a halachic organization and everything that we do follows Halacha. Halacha does not allow for Zoom or streaming on Shabbat or holidays. For further discussion on this topic please call me anytime.

When can I hear the Shofar?

This year the first day of Rosh Hashana is also Shabbat so the shofar is not blown. On the second day of Rosh HaShana we will be offering several opportunities to hear the shofar. Stay tuned for details.
