With many synagogues offering virtual-only Rosh Hashanah services because of COVID-19, Cantor Scott Borsky of Cherry Hill decided to observe the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Day season in-person, outdoors and socially distanced. His usual venue is the Mansion in Voorhees, but he knew that wouldn't safely work. After someone suggested Liberty Lake Day Camp in Bordentown he began planning the service. It was held on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, on September 19. Nearly all who attended came from Cherry Hill, Voorhees, Mount Laurel and Marlton, Borsky said. The service was livestreamed and anyone who would like to view it can contact Borsky at email@example.com.
