Rosh Hashana Schedule & Shofar Blowing locations


Shalom to all our dear friends

It is with pleasure that we announce this year’s Rosh Hashanah Program.

As you know due to the current situation with Covid-19 there are several limitations for this year’s program.


  • Both nights of Rosh Hashanah we will have services ONLY at the WBK.

  • Unfortunately, due to space limitations we will NOT be able to accommodate ladies during the night services.

  • For Morning services, we will have two locations, WBK and Shadis’ back yard (address below).

  • We will have a lady’s section during the morning services.

  • Each location we will only have 40 seats available in total.

  • Unfortunately, we will not have a children’s program. As such, we will not be able to accommodate children under Bar/Bat mitzvah age to either locations.

  • For those who want to hear the Shofar on Sunday, the second day of Rosh Hashanah, we will have a shofar blowing in the parking lot of WBK after the services. There will also be several satellite locations operated by WBK and Bikur Cholim to hear the shofar. Children are welcome to the parking lot and the satellite locations. These locations will be announced over the next few days.

RSVP is a MUST for admission to any of the services (Day or Night).

The price of admission is $100 per person/seat for all rosh hashanah services
