Join us for the High Holydays

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.)

If you have questions or would like to get a printed packet, please contact the Dorshei Tzedek Administrative Director at (617) 965-0330 or admindirector [at] Please remember to include your contact information, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

New this year: Childcare is available for children 6 months and older on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur morning. In addition, childcare is available for children 3 years and older for the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur evening.

Note that every child under the age of 3 must be pre-registered, with no exceptions. We cannot accept un-registered, “walk-in” children under the age of 3 as we need to ensure proper childcare/staff ratios for young children. Thanks for your understanding!

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