What are High Holy Days like at Temple Emanuel Sinai?

Everyone is welcome for services at Temple Emanuel Sinai. Unlike other congregations, we don’t have tickets or requirements for admission. If you want or need a place for the High Holy Days, we are that place.

Our services are a blend of traditional liturgy and contemporary readings, as found in the new Reform Machzor (High Holy Day prayer book): Mishkan HaNefesh. The way we use our text allows us to create an environment that is welcoming and reflective of those with a wide range of theologies or none at all. The words and prayers are elevated by our inspirational music.

We find when gather at this important time of year, it is our warm community that truly enhances our experience. It is the people in the sanctuary, not the sanctuary itself that makes worship holy.

Not already a member of our congregation? We look forward to you joining us in worship either in-person or online. Our High Holy Day Services never require tickets. However, because the ongoing situation with COVID is so fluid, we are asking families to pre-register this year. Please contact the Temple Emanuel Sinai with any questions, at (508) 755-1257 or office@emanuelsinai.org. We will post a registration link to this website sometime in August.
