Calendar of Services and Programs





Worship services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are conducted simultaneously in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary (Fifth Avenue at 65th Street) and the Lowenstein Sanctuary (10 East 66th Street); our rabbis and cantor alternate between locations.
Admission is by assigned ticket unless indicated otherwise.

This year, all will come together with the full clergy in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary for Erev Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur afternoon services, including the solemn Yizkor Memorial Service and inspirational N’Ilah Concluding Service. If your seats are in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary, please confirm your attendance for Erev Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur afternoon services and your seats will be honored; if you do not plan to attend either of those services, we ask that you let us know so those seats can be reassigned. If your seats are in the Lowenstein Sanctuary, please confirm whether you plan to attend these services so tickets can be issued to you in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary. To best serve all who plan to attend, we ask that you inform us of your plans by returning the membership renewal form that arrived with your billing statement and which is available online, or by calling (212) 507-9514. Please call (212) 507-9514 or email [email protected].
