Join us for the High Holydays

Thanks for joining us for High Holydays in 5776. If you attended but have not yet had a chance to donate, you can send a donation by using the envelope you received at services, or using our PayPal donations page. Or contact us at info [at] or 617-965-0330.


Congregation Dorshei Tzedek opens its doors to the wider community for all of our High Holyday services. We are proud to to be able to offer a full and inspiring array of services for our members and the community at large during these days of awe. We meet at the beautiful Gann Academy, 333 Forest St, Waltham, MA.

Our 5776/2015 High Holydays registration packet for non-members is now available. Click here or see the bottom of this page for a download. (Members: use this packet.) Pre-registration is easy via PayPal; it’s also fine to just show up at services if you cannot pre-register.

Childcare registration for children under the age of 3 is now closed. Childcare will be available for children 3 years and older for the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur evening. Please pre-register if you are able.

Note that every child under the age of 3 must have been pre-registered, with no exceptions. We cannot accept un-registered, “walk-in” children for childcare under the age of 3 as we need to ensure proper childcare/staff ratios for young children. However, a “family room” for parents of infants is available if you were unable to register, and kids are welcome with parents in the main sanctuary at any time. Thanks for your understanding!

Online Non-Member Reservations: Non-members may register and make their donations to attend our High Holyday services using PayPal.
