Free High Holy Days Services

It’s almost August, which means the lazy hazy, crazy days of summer are almost gone. That means back-to-school, football season, and of course the biggest event for synagogues the world over – the High Holy Days.

The Washington Metropolitan area has a variety of options for Jews along the spectrum of observance from Orthodox to Reconstructionist and everything in-between.

Most synagogues require you to be a member in order to attend – some even require you to purchase tickets as well. The Jewish Week has a great online directory of all the area synagogues to help you find something nearby.

For the unaffiliated, there are also some good free (or almost free) options:
