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!
