Rosh Hashanah 5783/2022

Sunday, September 25 – Tuesday, September 27

This Rosh Hashanah, we look forward to praying as one community across Jazz at Lincoln Center, Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew, the BJ Sanctuary, Zoom, and Livestream. 

Registration for in-person Rosh Hashanah services is now closed. All members who have registered should have received entrance cards for the High Holy Days. All services from the BJ Sanctuary, as well as Family and Children’s services will be streamed. We also have a member-only Zoom option, which was emailed to all members. Register here for our livestream of services, open to all. >> 

In the event of heavy rain, the outdoor livestream on the rooftop terrace will move indoors to Frankel Hall. Like the rooftop terrace, this will be a mask-required space.
