Inspiring, musical High Holiday Services with a blend of traditional liturgy, contemporary music and poetry, meditation, sermons and reflections, and congregant participation. 

For the first time since before the pandemic, Rosh HaShanah First Day and Kol Nidre will feature an SAJ choir that is made up of long-term and new SAJ members. On the second day of Rosh HaShanah, we welcome back Naomi Less, the Hiddur Band, and congregational speakers.

Donation-based Ticket Model

Through our donation-based model, we are asking everyone to support SAJ with an amount at least equal to what you donated last year, which covered both your High Holiday tickets and your Yom Kippur Appeal contribution. We also ask that you keep in mind that ticket prices for the main sanctuary were $360 per seat for members and $500 per seat for visitors and $200 for Family Services the last time we charged with the pay-per-ticket model. If you contributed less than these amounts per ticket last year, we ask that if possible, you consider contributing $360.00 - $500.00 per ticket  this year, or as close to that amount as you are able, especially if you register for in-person services.

If you contributed less than these amounts last year, we ask that if possible, you consider contributing $360.00-$500.00 per ticket  this year, or as close to that amount as you are able, especially if you register for in-person services.
