We wish our members and friends
a meaningful and pleasant fast.
לשנה טובה תכתבו ותחתמו
לאלתר לחיים טובים ולשלום



We will convene a 2:00 PM Mincha on Tuesday afternoon. If you are in the area, please help us make this minyan.


We have made every effort to preserve your customary seats. To view your Yom Kippur seats, click here. There will be maps/charts in the back of the room, and your reserved seats have been labeled, but it's probably a good idea to check out your seat location before you come.

Although our Machzor inventory is extensive, if you have your own, please bring it. We are expecting a large turnout.

Reserved seats are free with membership. Additional reserved seats for members are $125 and $250 for non-members. If you do not have a reserved seat, we are still happy to welcome you. To make a payment, please send a check or make a donation on our website. To discuss any special seating needs or requests that you may have, please e-mail us.


Please be sure to enter the synagogue thru the main doors. If you must use the side door, please ask security for assistance.


We plan to provide childcare on Tuesday, September 18th, from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM and then on Wednesday, September 19th, from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Please remember that only children and their parents/guardians are allowed in the Beit Midrash during these hours.


We are thrilled that Dr. Shai Secunda and Rabbi Andrew Scheer will join us for services and enhance the day with their thoughtful insights.

We thank all those of you who have helped us prepare for Yom Tov. We are especially grateful to: Joan Nachmani and Cori Robinson for providing the flowers; Arezoo & Sam Jesselson for sponsoring the Break-Fast (in celebration of the birthday of their son, Adir), Avi Sosa and Dana Friedman for helping us to prepare our sanctuary; Neil Kitainik and Grace Auerbach for their administrative assistance; our building manager, Vincenzo Aiosa, and his team for the essential and aesthetic improvements they continue to make; Rabbi Gavriel Bellino for his leadership and vision, and the many of you who have chosen to spend Yom Kippur with us.
