Our services will be conducted as usual by Rabbi Matt Carl, Cantor Sam Levine and Assistant Cantor Aryeh Nussbaum-Cohen in our beautiful Sanctuary.

Everyone must have a ticket either for regular services or children’s services or both. Children through college-age are welcome to attend services at no charge but still require a ticket. Tickets purchased before September 6 are $100 members/$150 non-members; after September 6 the ticket price is raised to $125 members/$175 non-members. For those who hae hearing difficulties, when ordering your tickets, please indicate whether you would like to reserve one or more headphone listening devices.

Service dates and times including youth & family services information are listed below. On Yom Kippur the Regency Room on the second floor will be set up as a quiet space to support family members who are attending Sanctuary services. Following Joanne’s and Audrey’s programs, children will relocate to the Regency room for conversation, quiet play and board games. Child under bar/bat mitzvah age will be served a simple lunch.
