High Holy Day Service Times


MJCBY’s Parallel Services are traditional, conservative and egalitarian using the Machzor Lev Shalem.

On Erev Rosh Hashanah, Shacharit, and at the conclusion of Yom Kippur (Mincha, Neilah and Maariv), there will be open seating with a single service in the Main Sanctuary.  The exception is Neilah when there will be two services, one in the Main Sanctuary and one in the Ballroom. During Neilah in the Main Sanctuary the ark will be left open. For the Torah Service and Musaf on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and on Kol Nidre, Rabbi Nesson and Cantor Shana Onigman will conduct one service while Rabbi Marans and Cantor Emeritus Attias will lead the other service (see service/room rotation below).
