Yom Kippur begins tomorrow at sundown.  TLD reader Mayer Sinensky pointed out that some of the synagogues on the Lower East Side now offer High Holiday services in English for people who have not been traditionally observant.  Here are two options he mentioned:

Wednesday, September 26th 11:30 a.m. –  p.m.

Are you looking for a fresh take on Yom Kippur services? Join me on the Lower East Side, at 371 Madison Street, where we’ll discover more than pray, and be inspired by what we learn from one another. We’ll be using a prayer booklet from our friends at Tikun in the UK. The services are in English. A program of the Aish Center.
Have specific questions? Curious about this meaningful program? Please feel free to contact Rabbi Stuart Shiff at 917-660-9341 or aishrabbi@gmail.com

  1. This is fantastic. First time I am hearing about a free High holy service on the lower east side, and in English yet. If I wasn’t recuperating from surgery , I would go myself. I hope to be able to attend one of these services next year with my family. Thank you for doing this.
