High Holy Days

The High Holy Days experience at Congregation Shaarey Zedek is, unquestionably, without parallel. This is where our legacy shines brightest.

Traditionally, our sanctuary of more than 2,000 is filled with members of all ages, families and guests. With our clergy robed in white, and our choir under the direction of our Hazzan in front of the magnificent multi-story stained glass windows surrounding our bimah, we cannot help but feel an elevated sense of spirituality.

Join us for reflection, friendship, remembrance, a re-commitment to acts of loving kindness, and an experience that binds us to one another and God in a powerful and transformative way.

For 2020/5781, our services were held unconventionally, but our Clergy, Board and professional team worked consciously and thoughtfully to retain the joyful, meaningful and moving High Holy Days experiences that are authentically CSZ, presented in different formats. In our shul, there truly is something for everyone.

Sukkot, Sh’mini Atzeret and Simchat Torah

The final shofar blast at the conclusion of Yom Kippur isn’t the end of the holiday season. CSZ brings you exciting services and innovative experiences, both outdoors in our Sukkah, under our family tent on the William Saulson Pavilion, and online. We blaze new trails with Religious School celebrations, Sukkot Seders and musical services for Yom Tov.


We offer a rich mix of activities and observances for all ages, from Religious School to Sisterhood, including CSZ participation in community-wide holiday observances.
