High Holidays at Segulah

In 5778, Segulah is doing Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur yet again!!! This will be our 6th annual Yom Kippur, and our 3rd annual Rosh Hashanah! We’re doing morning services on both days of Rosh Hashanah, and all services on Yom Kippur.


There are no tickets for Segulah High Holiday services; we want these services to be accessible to anyone who wants to take part.  However, advance signup is required, so that we can be prepared for the correct number of people.  Please click here to register by September 7th; after that time, registration will only remain open if there is still space available.  (If the space fills to capacity, we will have to close registration and start a waiting list.)


Like Segulah’s activities throughout the year, high holiday services are run completely by volunteers.  Please click here and sign up to volunteer to help make Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur happen here.


We’ll be renting our high holiday space for many hours, so the rental costs are significantly higher than for Segulah services throughout the year.  Therefore, there is a suggested donation of $40 per adult ($25 per child) for each holiday to help cover the rental and other expenses.  If you can contribute more than this amount, larger contributions are also welcome, and if the suggested amount is too much, chip in whatever you can.  There will be no fundraising during services.
