High Holidays 5775

L'shanah tovah
from The Jewish Theological Seminary!

For decades, JTS has served as the makom tefillah (place of prayer) for Jews of the Upper West Side and the JTS community on the High Holidays. JTS's High Holiday services are warm, welcoming, and fully egalitarian, featuring traditional liturgy, engaging melodies, and words of Torah to enhance the prayer experience. To attend High Holiday services at JTS, you must register in advance.

JTS offers two High Holiday services:

Main Service—Feinberg Auditorium
Led by Rabbi Daniel Nevins, Rabbi Julia Andelman, Dr. Alan Cooper, and Liza Wohlberg. Chancellor Arnold Eisen will deliver a sermon at Kol Nidrei services.

Kehillah Minyan—Women's League Seminary Synagogue
Led by rabbinical student Lauren Henderson and doctoral student Rabbi Benjamin Resnick. Space is limited.

JTS will also host Kehilat Hadar for Rosh Hashanah. Reservations are required and open to members of the Hadar community. For more information, please visit www.kehilathadar.org.
