Rosh Hashana Schedule

High Holidays 5782 Seating Reservations

This year, Rosh HaShana begins on Monday evening (Labor Day), September 6, through Wednesday, September 8, and Kippur is on Wednesday evening, September 15 and Thursday, September 16.

5782 Schedule & Our High Holiday Traditions

On Rosh HaShana and Kippur, the sanctuary takes on a special aura of purity and holiness. The Torah scrolls are dressed in white silk cloaks, and the Myer Myers Rimonim grace the Torah scrolls.

Shofar Blowing on Paved Paradise

For members and friends who are unable to hear the shofar during services, we will be offering a separate outdoor shofar blowing service.

Shabbat Teshuba Double-Header 5782

This year, Rabbi Soloveichik will be delivering a one-two punch of inspiring Shabbat Teshuba content, with one in-person address on Shabbat Teshuba itself, and a major livestream lecture on the Tuesday before Kippur.

Holiday Offerings

It is our custom to make memorial offerings during Kippur services and offerings of thanksgiving on Succot. These offerings are a beautiful way to memorialize or pay tribute to loved ones and help maintain our synagogue.
