While this year will be different from all other years, we invite you to commemorate the High Holidays at Shearith Israel. Learn about our special traditions, see our safety precautions and your health responsibilities, view prayer schedules, reserve seats for services, and explore classes and lectures delivered by our clergy.


5782 Schedule & Our High Holiday Traditions

On Rosh HaShana and Kippur, the sanctuary takes on a special aura of purity and holiness. The Torah scrolls are dressed in white silk cloaks, and the Myer Myers Rimonim grace the Torah scrolls.

Shofar Blowing on Paved Paradise

For members and friends who are unable to hear the shofar during services, we will be offering a separate outdoor shofar blowing service. 


Shabbat Teshuba Double-Header 5782

This year, Rabbi Soloveichik will be delivering a one-two punch of inspiring Shabbat Teshuba content, with one in-person address on Shabbat Teshuba itself, and a major livestream lecture on the Tuesday before Kippur.



Holiday Offerings

We traditionally make offerings during the High Holiday season.  These offerings are a beautiful way to memorialize or pay tribute to loved ones and help maintain our synagogue.
