High Holydays 5778

Thanks for joining us for the 5778 High Holydays! If you attended but haven’t had a chance to donate yet, you can donate online or fill out the appropriate page from the registration packet and mail it in with a check. Thank you!

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.

This year for the first time CDT will be offering individuals with hearing impairments attending our High Holiday services small wireless Assisted Listening Devices (ALD’s) which will allow them to listen to services at a higher volume through earphones, or T-Loop equipped hearing aids and cochlear implants. To register for a device for one or more HH service (the supply is limited) please email access [at] dorsheitzedek.org.

Our 5778/2017 High Holydays registration packet for non-members is now available. The link is also available at the bottom of this page for a download. (Members: use this packet.)  Online Non-Member Reservations: Non-members may register and make their donations to attend our High Holyday services using PayPal.

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] dorsheitzedek.org. Please remember to include your contact information, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

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, by Wednesday, September 13. 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!
