High Holy Days: Free, Open to All


Some congregants step into our outdoor garden for their silent prayer or Amidah.

Now in our 80th year, our High Holy Day services are free to all without tickets or reservations.    Free parking is available on City Island Avenue and in the Seafood City parking lot, across the street from the synagogue: persons using the parking lot should please use the spaces closest to the fence alongside City Island Avenue.
