Inaugural High Holy Days 2019/5780

Everyone is welcome at no charge, but you must pre-register

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

For the 5780 High Holy Days, everyone is invited to attend Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur—there is no fee for guests to participate in High Holy Day Services, but for security reasons everyone must be pre-registered!

Admission to High Holy Days Services
Here is the crucial information for our upcoming Inaugural 5780 High Holy Days services with Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon:

*For Members of Congregation Beit Simcha:
1. All members of Beit Simcha will automatically be on the admission list at the door. You do not need to call to confirm your own attendance. You will not need an admission card or “ticket” to get in. We will have security personnel and ushers at the door checking names. Please bring a photo ID (your driver’s license is fine).

2. There is no charge for High Holy Day admission for your guests, but if you are a member and wish to bring guests, please do give us their names, addresses, email, and phone numbers. You can email the necessary information to rabbi@beitsimchatucson.org directly, or call 520-276-5675.

3. For security purposes, and to assure adequate materials, every visitor and guest must register.4. Service times are posted on the Calendar on this website, are included in weekly emails and posted on our Facebook page as well, and listed below.
5. We provide High Holy Day Machzorim (prayer books), and donations to assist in this are greatly appreciated.
6.  Torah Tykes services precede Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur morning services, and youth programming will follow for children too young for services during both mornings. There is no charge for this, but pre-registration is essential. Email youthed@beitsimchatucson.org to register your children.
