High Holidays

 High Holidays

HHD Ticket web


Tickets are not required for admission to High Holiday worship. Services are open to members, their guests and the community.  If you are a guest, please introduce yourself to the greeters and ushers.  Our clergy would like to meet you.  After services, they will greet the congregation at one of the sanctuary doors.


Reciprocal Tickets at Other Congregations

Temple Israel members in good standing may request tickets to High Holiday services at other Reform congregations. If you’ll be traveling during the holidays and would like to attend services, click here to request tickets. Temple Israel will forward your request to the host congregation, and that congregation will respond to you. All seating is subject to the host congregation’s policies; Temple Israel cannot guarantee seating at any other synagogue.


Parents, if you think your children are ready to attend adult services during High Holidays, please bring them. We especially encourage all children fourth grade and older to attend. Childcare, which includes hands-on, age-appropriate Jewish programming for children age 11 and under, will be available during all High Holiday services by advanced reservation only. To make a childcare reservation, click here.


Please bring your own copy of Mishkan HaNefesh if you own a set (we recommend that you write your name in your books). Temple lends copies of Mishkan HaNefesh on a first-come, first-served basis. You may purchase prayerbooks online from Amazon or the CCAR Press. You may also call the CCAR press at 212-972-3636 or send them an email.

Assisted Listening Devices

Temple has a small number of assisted listening devices to lend that work only in the Great Hall. They are distributed free of charge to the first who request them.


Ample parking is available at Temple Israel. Security will be present to direct traffic. Arrive earlier if you wish to park closer to the building. Handicap parking spaces are reserved near the front doors.
