FREE! HIGH HOLIDAY SERVICES

No tickets required!

The following is a list of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services being held at synagogues across the state that require neither membership nor the purchase of tickets. In other words, attendance is absolutely FREE – or, as Rabbi Yosef Wolvovsky, of Chabad Jewish Center in Glastonbury puts it, “no strings attached!” We anticipate there will be more shuls adding services to the list – so keep checking.

Rosh Hashana begins Sunday evening, Sept. 13 and concludesTuesday night, Sept. 15. Yom Kippur begins Tuesday evening, Sept. 22 and concludes Wednesday night, Sept. 23.
