Best wishes to you and your family for a shanah tovah u’metukah, a happy, healthy and sweet 5778.
We look forward to greeting you at our beloved shul during Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and other occasions.

Rosh Hashanah will be celebrated on Wednesday, September 20 (6:30 pm service), and Thursday, September 21 and Friday, September 22 (8:00 am service start both days). Yom Kippur begins on Friday, September 29 with Kol Nidre (5:45 pm service) and then Saturday, September 30 (9:00 am service). Our services will be conducted by Rabbi Matt Carl and Cantor Sam Levine, along with our new Assistant Cantor Julia Ostrov in our beautiful Sanctuary.

We invite you to join us, and you can reserve your seat online with this form. For each seat in the Main Sanctuary, a ticket is $125 for members and $175 for nonmembers of East Midwood Jewish Center. Each ticket covers all Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services.
