High Holidays 5774

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. To attend services at JTS this year, you must register in advance.

There will be two services at JTS during the Yamim Nora'im. Both will be egalitarian, including men and women as full participants. Whether you are a well-traveled synagogue-goer or new to the path, JTS will be a warm and engaging community with which to spend these Days of Awe:

JTS's Main Service—Feinberg Auditorium
Conducted by Rabbi Daniel Nevins and Cantor Nancy Abramson, JTS's Main Service features a traditional liturgy with kavanot (explanations). Chancellor Armold Eisen will deliver a sermon at Kol Nidrei services.

Kehillah Minyan—Women's League Seminary Sanctuary
Join rabbinical students Rami Schwartzer and Lauren Henderson on a journey through the High Holidays liturgy, which will fuse traditional and contemporary melodies and modes. Space is limited.

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

If you are planning on making JTS your primary makom tefillah for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, or both, please register for the appropriate holiday at www.jtsa.edu/highholidaysregistration. Photo ID is required for admission. Students from JTS, Columbia University, and Barnard College will be admitted with student ID at all service times.
