High Holy Days


We are looking forward to ushering in 5779 together.  The High Holy Days come early this year beginning with Selichot on Saturday, September 1st.  Each year, we share this meaningful service with other synagogues in our area and the service is enhanced with music from Cantor Cattan and several of his colleagues.  This year’s service will be held at Temple Beth El in Stamford.

Details on schedule, tickets, babysitting and more are available on the links listed on this page.

NEW THIS YEAR: We are excited to be introducing a Young Family Service open and free of charge to the community.  This service on Yom Kippur will be held from 10:15AM to 11:00AM and it is geared toward families with children in preschool through grade 2. It will be filled with music and stories, led by Cantor and Silvia Cattan, and include a visit from Rabbi Wiederhorn.  Please note that as with all services, tickets are required.

TICKETS:  For security reasons, everyone over 18 needs a ticket to attend services.  Congregants whose financial commitments have been met receive tickets based on their respective membership category such as general, single, or single head of household.  They may request tickets for their young adult children between 18 and 30 years of age and purchase tickets for parents, children-in-law, children over the age of 30 and out-of-town guests. Complimentary tickets to the Young Family Services and Rosh Hashanah Day 2 services are required and available on-line or at the Synagogue office.  Please remember to bring your ticket to each service and give it to the ushers at the front door.  If you forget your ticket, you will be directed to an individual who will have a list of all expected members and guests.

PARKING:   Convenient parking with shuttle service is provided and information is printed on each ticket.  If you require accessible parking at TCS, you must reserve a space in advance. This accommodation is available to drivers with a government-issued parking permit.  Please contact the office no later than August 27 and let us know for which days you need an accessible space.

TICKETS, BABYSITTING & BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE:  Babysitting is offered for children ages 1 – 5 throughout all morning services.  Reservations are required.  For efficiency, all ticket requests, babysitting reservations and book of remembrance forms are available here on our website. You may complete the forms on-line or download, print, and return them to the synagogue office.  All requests, either on-line or in paper form, should be made by August 10th.

On behalf of Rabbi Wiederhorn, Cantor Cattan, the staff, and the Board of TCS, we wish you and your family a New Year filled with joy, good health, and peace.  We hope to see you at TCS throughout 5779 for Shabbat Services, a tikkun olam project, a speaker or any number of our programs.

Shanah Tovah,
