Free High Holidays Services



Free High Holidays Services

Are you are looking for inspiration and meaning this new year? The Jewish Learning Center of New York is pleased to announce our Free High Holiday Services for September 2019/Tishri 5780. Everyone is welcome! Our traditional Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services will be held in a spiritual, warm, welcoming, and inclusive environment. Join us for powerful prayer, the reading of the Torah, and the blowing of the shofar. We will feature singing, dancing, thought provoking explanations and a few surprises.

There are no tickets or membership fees, just come.

Rabbi David Kalb will be officiating along with our Balei Tefila (prayer leaders), Rabbi Isaiah Rothstein and Yitzchak Schwartz.

Everything will take place (except Tashlich) at the Hudson Yards Synagogue (also known as Congregation Beth Israel/West Side Jewish Center):

347 West 34th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue.

Services will take place in the social hall on the ground floor.

While our services are free in preparation for the Holidays it will be helpful to have a sense of how many people will be in attendance. Please click HERE to fill out the High Holiday form.
