High Holidays @ JCC Harlem

Dear Community,

We are delighted to be offering a full roster of High Holiday experiences at JCC Harlem again this year. Each experience is different - some are led by our very own Rabbi Abigail Treu, Director of the Center for Jewish Living and the Sonabend Center for Israel at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan; while others are led by our Harlem Jewish Communal partners (Beineinu, Kehillat Harlem, and Lab/ name a few!). Some experiences will have amplified sound, projection and instrumentation; others will not. To help you navigate our offerings and find the experiences that best match your needs, each program registration description has following information:


  • ritual leadership
  • who will benefit from the experience
  • what ritual aspects you can expect (will there be a Torah reading? Amplification? Projection? Instrumentation? Chanting? Text study? Hebrew and/or English?)
  • important logistical information like dates, times, and cost


JCC Harlem is committed to creating an inclusive landscape of Jewish life in Harlem. While we know that not every experience will be for everyone, we hope there's something here for you! If you have additional questions about what you can expect to see (or otherwise experience) or would like to request a particular accommodation, please email


An important note on financial accessibility for our High Holiday programs, and all of our offerings at JCC Harlem: It is of deep importance to us that our programs be financially accessible for all. If you or your family would like to discuss financial assistance for any of our programs, please email We can't wait to spend the holidays with all of you. We will be updating this page, please check back!
