High Holidays 5781

Information for Guests and Extended Family Members

Welcome High Holiday Guests!

We look forward to having you join our community for this important part of our Jewish lives. For the past several months, our clergy and professional staff, along with our High Holiday committee, have worked diligently to create an unparalleled High Holiday experience, one that is engaging, spiritually fulfilling, and creative.

High Holidays will be different this year – everything will be online – and also very exciting. Many of the main services will be live streamed, which you can access through links that will be posted on our homepage. Anyone is welcome to attend and watch these live streamings.

To ensure the safety of our members, all Zoom services (including the second day of Rosh Hashana, children's and teen services), all of our lectures, videos and numerous other materials will be protected on a private High Holiday webpage. To obtain access to the full array of services and programming, please complete this form.

Please note that in this unusual time, we have decided not to require tickets for guests to attend services. Nevertheless, although not required, we hope that you will donate to our congregation to help us defray the many additional costs we have incurred in providing our High Holidays services and abundant programming.

We suggest a donation of $118 for those over the age of 25, the amount that we generally charge for High Holiday tickets. Guests under the age of 25 have traditionally been free of charge. To make your contribution by credit card, please click here and click “Donate” under “Continue as a Guest”, or you can send a check to Temple Aliyah, 1664 Central Avenue, Needham, MA 02492 and note TA Guest Ticket(s).

We are honored that you would like to celebrate these days with our community. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Aviva Jezer or Peter Seresky, High Holiday Chairs, at

Shana Tova. May you be inscribed in the Book of Life and may you have a happy, healthy and safe New Year.

The Temple Aliyah Community
