The Gospel Sounds of Jewish New Year
The wide distribution of vaccines and high vaccination rates in New York has made us more hopeful concerning the duration of the pandemic. However, at the point of this writing, there are certain Covid protocols for the services upon which we must insist.
Please bear in mind that since the pandemic is evolving, so too are the protocols, since they too evolve in relation to whatever might be the current situation, we reserve the right to revise them. At this point in time we are following these protocols:
In order to ensure your safety, we will be requiring that everyone who attends the services must have been fully vaccinated (and depending on your vaccine that might mean two doses with two weeks afterwards.)
In order to enter the service, you will have to bring with you proof of vaccination cards and a photo ID. There will be no exceptions to this requirement.
All participants will be required to wear masks covering nose and mouth. Please no breathing valve masks. We recommend you use surgical three-ply masks, KN95 or N95 are the best. We ask for your full cooperation.
Children under 12 who attend and are not vaccinated must wear masks at all times and will be seated in a separate area with their parents. In addition, they must have proof of the results of a negative PCR test within 72 hours upon entry.
We also ask that if you are not feeling well or have any symptoms associated with Covid-19 or have reason to believe that you are at risk of recent exposure to Covid-19, that you please refrain from attending the service.
We have followed these protocols in order to keep our congregation healthy and safe. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 212-606-4066 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again we are blessed that the services will be held at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church at corner of 73rd Street and Madison Avenue in Manhattan. This is a beautiful and awe-inspiring space that will deepen our High Holyday experience.
For the past 38 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!
