We are happy to share that this year’s High Holy Day services will be both in-person and streamed.


  • Erev Rosh HaShanah and Kol Nidre services will be at the Paramount Theatre. 

  • Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur early and late morning services will be held in the Temple Sinai Sanctuary.

  • Rosh HaShanah afternoon events will be at Marina Park in Emeryville.

  • Yom Kippur afternoon events will take place at Temple Sinai.


For a complete list of services and locations, please see our Schedule page.

If you have already renewed your membership, High Holy Day Passes will be sent for each adult member of your household. Passes are not required for dependent children, but registration is necessary for childcare and/or children’s programming.

Your High Holy Days passes are also name tags. Once you arrive at the event location, show the greeter your name tag and be sure to pick up a lanyard and holder so that all people can greet you by name. Please bring lanyards and nametags to all High Holy Days events and services.

If you would like to borrow machzorim for the virtual High Holy Day services, please contact the temple office.



The High Holy Days are a time for reflection, re-connection, and prayer. We are delighted that you are considering joining us for the upcoming High Holy Days. In addition to celebrating and observing these special holidays, people often use these services as a way to get acquainted with our congregation and community. 


We offer many ways to enjoy the beauty of the High Holy Days with a wide variety of services and musical styles and non-member participation in our services is always welcome.

Our members, who support our Temple year-round, absorb the overwhelming costs of our High Holy Day services. To help defray some of the costs, we ask non-members who can contribute to do so. 

Adult guest passes are $275 per person.

We know that this is another exceptional year and we do not want finances to stand in the way of anyone joining us for services or from participating in our community. Please make a donation that is meaningful to you. The cost of a non-member ticket can later be applied toward Temple Sinai membership if you decide to join before the end of the calendar year.

Contributions for High Holy Day tickets are fully tax-deductible.
