The month of Elul begins the High Holy Day season. Our High Holy Day observances begin with Selichot and continue through Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah.

High Holy Days 2016/5777

One Pass

With your One Pass, you may attend any service. You will need to show your One Pass at all services except those that indicate “No One Pass or ticket required” or “Open to the Community.” Students are welcome to come showing their school IDs; no passes needed.
Please note: All Passes for High Holy Day services are non-transferable.

Security

For the protection of everyone, security personnel reserve the right to inspect all purses and packages and check identification. In the interest of time, please bring only what you will need during the service. Allow extra time to pass through the security lines.

Parking — Changes This Year

Offsite parking will still be located in the Presidio, however the Presidio rules have changed and we are unable to reserve a lot or pre-pay for parking. The charge before 6 pm is $1.50/hour with a $8/day maximum and no time limit. This is no charge for parking after 6 pm. There should be ample parking available, and the parking machines accept credit cards.

We are still able to provide shuttles to bring you to the temple. To board the shuttles, please look for our security officer and the large light fixture we have rented to illuminate evening parking, which is located in the Main Post lot at Arguello and Sheridan streets. Please allow at least 45 minutes for transportation and the security check at the Temple entrance.

Transportation Assistance for Seniors in San Francisco on High Holy Days

In partnership with the Jewish Community Federation, Congregation Emanu-El is again offering to subsidize half of the cost of transportation for elderly and disabled San Francisco resident members. We are offering transportation for the 6:00 pm Classic Erev Rosh Hashanah service on Sunday, October 2, the 6:00 pm Classic Kol Nidre service on Tuesday, October 11 and the 5:30 pm Yizkor service on Wednesday, October 12. All services will be in the Main Sanctuary. Our transportation provider is SilverRide, a company that specializes in transportation for older adults.

Reservations for the subsidized SilverRide service can be made through the temple, and the firm deadline is Monday, September 12. To reserve and pay, please register or contact Director of Membership Services Terry Kraus, membership@emanuelsf.org or (415) 750-7552. The cost is $25 per person for each round trip.

Deadline for SilverRide service has now passed.

Child Care

Child care is provided during the early evening services, morning services and during Yizkor and Neilah. There is no childcare for the late (Contemporary) evening services. Child care is for children 2 – 10 years old. A form must be submitted in advance to enroll your child(ren) for child care.

If you choose to bring a young child to the Classic or Contemporary services, please be sure that your child is able to sit through the entire service (approximately two hours) so as not to disturb other worshipers. Otherwise, please Register for child care when offered, or make other arrangements.

Guests

You may include your friends or relatives who would like to attend in one of the following ways:

  • Register now online to request guest tickets. Tickets are $175 per seat per service or $600 if you are requesting tickets for all five services (two evenings, two mornings and Yizkor).
  • If your visitors belong to a Reform or Liberal congregation, please ask them to request tickets by having their synagogue send us a URJ Courtesy Request form. Your guests should ask their synagogue to indicate on the Courtesy Request form that they are attending with you.
  • We have a limited number of tickets available for visitors and they can only be purchased by members of the synagogue. It is important to emphasize that Congregation Emanu-El members are our first priority with respect to space at High Holy Day services.

Travel

If you will be traveling within the United States and/or abroad during the High Holy Days, we can request courtesy seats for you at other Reform and Liberal congregations. Please log into MyEmanu-El to fill out the reciprocity form.  Please note that your membership must be renewed for the 2016-17 fiscal year before you are able to request reciprocity.

High Holy Days Ushers

Every year for the High Holy Days services, we need Temple ushers who extend a warm welcome, hand out prayer books, help congregants with seating, and answer general questions. Enrich your High Holy Day experience and help make the experiences of fellow members a positive and spiritual one. There are openings for every service. Register.

Requirement: You must arrive 45 minutes prior to the start of the service to be at your post and ready to greet when the doors open. For more information, please contact our High Holy Days office at (415) 751-2541 x138 or email hhd@emanuelsf.org.

Questions

If you have any questions about the High Holy Days, please contact our High Holy Days office at (415) 751-2541 x138 or email hhd@emanuelsf.org.

YIZKOR AND NEILAH CONCLUDING WORSHIP

A memorial service called Yizkor (Remembrance) is recited near the conclusion of Yom Kippur. It is said by every person who has lost a parent or other loved ones.
Neilah (the full name of this service is Ne’ilat She’arim (Closing of the Gates), referring to the daily closing of the Temple gates in Jerusalem), follows Yizkor. On Yom Kippur, this literal closing is symbolically associated with the closing of the heavenly gates that remained open to prayer until sunset. If you wish to wait until the Yizkor service concludes, you may enter the sanctuary at the beginning of Neilah.

5:30 pm – Classic Yizkor and Neilah Services Main Sanctuary
Led by Rabbis Carla Fenves and Sydney Mintz.  Sermon by Senior Rabbi Jonathan Singer.
