High Holiday Service Information

This year services will continue to look a bit different from years past but we are working hard to ensure that we can regain some sense of normalcy moving forward.

Similar to last year, we will require registration for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services and seats will be assigned for all who wish to attend, accommodating for social distancing and ensuring the safety and accessibility for everyone.  Therefore, tickets will not be needed for anyone to enter the building. Upon entering the New City Jewish Center, all clergy, congregants and staff are required to wear a proper face mask, covering both the nose and mouth.

As far as seating, first priority will be given to those people who own seats.  We will make every attempt to seat these individuals in the seats they own, or as close to their seats as possible.  Second priority will be for those who have in the past, or wish to currently, rent seats.  All other seating will be granted on a first come first serve basis. Please note that members need to be current in their dues in order to attend services. We ask that you register for seats as soon as you are able using the link provided below.  Please sign up as soon as possible, as this will give us a chance to plan properly.

For those who remain unable to participate in-person, our live stream will be made available for all to view.

Book of Remembrance

The New City Jewish Center has always prepared a "Book of Remembrance"  which is distributed on Yom Kippur when we say Yizkor. Congregants may include the names of departed loved ones to remember their passing in a meaningful way. The Book contains a compilation of prayers and meditations to recite and give comfort throughout the year, particularly on the occasion of the four Yiskor services held each year.
