This year in 2023 our Rosh Hashanah service(only ) will be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church located at the corner of Lexington and 88th Street NYC. Entrance is off Lexington toward Park.
And once again we are blessed that our Yom Kippur services will be held at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, corner 73rd Street and Madison NYC.
These are beautiful and awe-inspiring spaces that will deepen our High Holyday experiences.
For the past 40 years, we have been presenting High Holyday services open to the New York Jewish community, to introduce our synagogue for the unaffiliated and disconnected. We are the most celebrated High Holyday services in New York and people talk about their experience with us for months afterward. We invented the concept of “open door” services. Our rabbis are dynamic and relevant, presenting compelling and moving services that connect to your life. Thousands of people have attended our services and have been transformed; their Judaism renewed and revitalized.
Our services are open to young professionals, singles (20s, 30s, 40s and above), empty-nesters, young families/couples, intermarried, the interfaith dating, beginners, people interested in Judaism, seniors, students, Russian Jews, or anyone else—everyone is invited! We especially welcome veteran worshipers who found past High Holyday experiences bland, boring, or lacking in meaning, and are looking for a fresh, new, and exciting way to experience Judaism!

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are one of the most moving and spiritually uplifting times of the entire year.
The purpose of these days, among many other things, is to ascend the ladder to reach the Heavens, to fix our lives, to fix the world, to realign our souls. We look forward to sharing these awesome, joyous days with you. We look forward to making the journey together to wholeness and rebirth and renewal. These days are more than just holidays–they are holydays, days that impact on the deepest parts of our lives. May God, the Holy One of Being and Blessing, be an active presence in your life in the forthcoming year and we pray that it will be for you and yours and all, a year of health, happiness, prosperity, and meaning!
