High Holy Days

High Holy Days 5777

Shaaray Tefila welcomes the Jewish New Year on Rosh Hashanah and observes the 10 Days of Awe with worship on Shabbat Shuvah and Yom Kippur
We conduct two (early and late) services on Rosh HaShanah morning, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur morning. 


Shaaray Tefila adds to the beauty of the holidays with special touches of our own. The High Holy Days season is ushered in with a late-night Selichot service of creative worship. On the afternoon of Rosh HaShanah, hundreds of congregants join in a Tashlich service conducted beside the East River. On Yom Kippur, services culminate with a deeply touching Neilah service. 

We host age-appropriate activities and services for all children during the High Holy Days, ranging from babysitting, to programs for children of various ages, to youth services for middle and high school students.
