High Holidays at YIPPJC

To view a copy of the High Holiday letter that was sent out to the community, please click here.

We are delighted to invite you to High Holiday services this year at the Young Israel of Pelham Parkway Jewish Center.

Rosh Hashana this year will be on September 19th and 20th , and Yom Kippur will be on September 28th . Services will again be led by Cantor Yair Shahak, who has beautifully led the High Holiday services in our community for many years.

This year, services will be held in the beautiful upstairs sanctuary of our building.
While we are hopeful that the need for social distancing and other health precautions will decrease as we get closer to the High Holidays, for now we are working under the assumption that the following will be necessary to ensure a safe prayer environment for our entire community:

  • Only individuals who have registered in advance will be permitted to enter the building.
  • Individuals who are feeling sick or have been in close contact with people who have COVID-19 should not attend services until they are cleared by their doctors.
  • Seating in the sanctuary will be assigned to ensure proper social distancing.
  • Face coverings will be required for everyone in the building.
  • Everyone will be expected to wash or sanitize their hands upon entry.

We have decided to waive all membership fees for the 2020 calendar year. Whether you have been a paying member of our shul in the past or not, we invite you to join now, and enjoy the membership rate for High Holiday tickets. To do so, simply register for seats at the member price. Dues for 2021 will be billed in December at $360 for an individual membership, and $700 for a family membership.

To register for High Holiday services, you can use the form below, or call our office at 718-824-0630 between 9:00am and 1:00pm on Monday through Thursday.  Please note that we have sold out all seating for men.

No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.  Please call our office, or reach out to the Rabbi or Synagogue President to make arrangements.

High Holiday registration is now closed.
