Find local, in-person and virtual services for you and your family to observe the High Holidays

It’s almost 5782! Here you will find our roundup of High Holidays offerings from a wide spectrum of synagogues in the Greater Philadelphia area that warmly welcome guests.

This list includes in-person, virtual, and hybrid options for traditional services, children’s services, classes, Tashlich walks, and more. However, plans may shift rapidly due to COVID, so we encourage you to double-check with your chosen synagogue closer to the date —and, of course, to follow their COVID safety protocols!

If you would like help choosing a synagogue that might be a good fit, email info@jewishphilly.org with some information about what kind of experience you are seeking and we will help you narrow down your options.

Shofar Relay
Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.
Much like lighting fires on top of mountains to communicate the coming of the new month, Rosh Chodesh, across great distances, we will be using the shofar to signal the New Year across the distance between Adath Israel and Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El. Beginning at 4:30 PM, our hosts and shofar blowers will be gathering at locations along the map provided. At 4:30 PM sharp, a shofar blower at Adath Israel will begin sounding the shofar.
Once the next site hears, they will sound the shofar, and continue the message along the route until the message of the shofar is transmitted from Merion to Wynnewood. Gather along the route before 4:30 PM to hear the sounding of the shofar between 4:30 PM and 4:45 PM. No running required for this relay. Weather-permitting.
