Calendar of Services and Programs


Worship, study and programming for all ages...



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.

We once again will host one service in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary for Yom Kippur Afternoon, where we will come together to mark the end of the High Holy Days. To best serve all who are planning to attend on Yom Kippur afternoon, we ask that you send us confirmation of your attendance. If your seats are in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary, they will be honored; but if you do not plan to attend, we ask that you let us know so those seats can be reassigned. If your seats are in the Lowenstein Sanctuary, then please confirm that you plan to attend so that tickets can be issued to you in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary. Please call (212) 507-9514 or email YKafternoon@emanuelnyc.org.

NEW for 5778... For members with children between 18 months and 5 years of age, we will be offering child care for the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur morning services. This amenity is complimentary, but space is limited. Parents must register by 5 PM on September 8.
