High Holidays 5779/2018

Join us for the High Holidays at BHSS!

We are thrilled to have Rabbi Ilana Schwartzman and Cantor David Perper leading us in worship.

Members in good standing are entitled to tickets for their entire household, as well as tickets for other family members at a discounted rate. Please call the office at 201-512-1983 for details and pricing, and to receive a member High Holiday ticket form if you do not have one.

Non-members can purchase tickets that will allow them admission to our entire schedule of High Holiday offerings, including Kol Nidre.  For details, please call the office at 201-512-1983 or write to our administrator, Iris Greenberg, by clicking here.

We are once again offering our popular High Holiday Children’s programming during the services beginning at 8:15 a.m. on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings.  Your family does NOT have to be members for your child(ren) to participate; however, you must be holding tickets to the early morning service.  Click here for a form you can use to register: you may fill it out and save the file, then send it to [email protected] or you can print it out and fax to 201-512-1586 or mail or drop it off at the synagogue.


The High Holidays represent a special time to connect with the Jewish community. Through the EZ Key program, synagogues in the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey catchment area are saying “Welcome” to new members of the community (who have lived in our community for two years or less) by offering High Holiday tickets.  Don’t miss hearing the Shofar this year. Tickets are available for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, including Kol Nidre and YizkorClick here to request tickets.
