High Holidays Community Observances 2017

Come together as a community rooted in a Jewish commitment to social justice for a program of readings, reflection, and singing.  Whatever your upbringing – whatever your level of Jewish knowledge – however you might define your own spirituality – we invite you to join us!

    • Rosh Hashanah Service: FULL TO CAPACITY Thurs., Sept. 21st, 10 AM - 12 PM
    • RH Children's Service: FULL TO CAPACITY Thurs., Sept. 21st, 10 AM - 12 PM
    • Yom Kippur Service: FULL TO CAPACITY Sat., Sept. 30th, 10 AM - 12 PM

      We no longer have any seats in the main sanctuary for either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur, but we have 2 options for you:

      Live Stream Overflow Room: This year for the first time ever, we will be streaming live on Facebook. Our overflow room will seat up to 75 people who will participate together, singing along with the main service in a more intimate setting.

      Standing Room in the Main Sanctuary: We have a limited number of standing room only tickets in the main sanctuary. As seats are not assigned, this is on the honor system. If you register for standing room, please do not sit in a seat until 9:50, as you will be taking that seat from someone who registered for it.

    • If you have a seat that you will not be using for any reason, please let us know ASAP. 


All services are held at 474 Centre St. (Eliot Church), Newton, MA 02458 


Suggested Donation Amounts (covers Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services):

    • WC members: $100 per individual/$175 per family

The High Holiday suggested donation is an important way to help sustain the community that makes these holiday observances possible. Boston Workmen’s Circle depends on the support we receive at the holidays each year. At the same time, we are committed to making sure that all feel welcome at our observances. You are always welcome whatever you are able to pay.
