Is this a typical High Holiday Service?
No way, it’s a High Holiday Service unlike any you have attended before!! Its interactive and you can even sing along! These interactive services, in which the prayers and customs are fully explained, are designed to provide a meaningful High Holiday Jewish experience to everyone who attends. Your High Holidays will never be the same again.
Is it in English or Hebrew?
We use a Machzor (High Holiday prayer book) that uses both Hebrew and English, but all of the Hebrew prayers are transliterated into English so that everyone can easily follow along.
Will I know all of the tunes?
Some of of the tunes will be familiar traditional tunes and some will be new, but everything will be taught and explained so you will feel part of the special experience.
Why will I love this service?
This Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, approximately 2 million American Jews will attend High Holiday Services. Unfortunately, you may not be one of them. Why? Is it because: You do not understand the prayers. Although highly educated and sophisticated you feel inadequate and illiterate in a synagogue setting. The sermons do not speak to you and the rituals make you feel awkward. Frequently, you leave the synagogue feeling guiltier than before you came so, it’s no wonder why you rarely come in, let alone come back!! With this in mind, the Boca Raton Synagogue, BRS West and the National Jewish Outreach Program (NJOP) has designed special “High Holiday Beginners Services” for you!

At BRS West, a satellite campus of Boca Raton Synagogue, on the Campus of Hillel Day school which is on the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County campus.
