High Holy Days at Yale


Please Note: While this academic year brings with it many changes, our High Holy Day offerings are one of them.  To find an updated list of High Holy Day offerings for the 2020-2021 Academic Year, please visit this new page: slifkacenter.org/high-holidays/.  Thank you!  Once we are all back and Holiday offerings return to normal, this information will become relevant again.



JOSEPH SLIFKA CENTER for Jewish Life at Yale offers Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, and  Alternative Services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.


We ask that everyone (including students) obtain tickets.  Tickets for current Yale students are complimentary.  You may request tickets over the phone, in person or by mail. We are located at 80 Wall Street in New Haven, CT 06511 (between College and Temple Streets).


Slifka Center is committed to meeting the religious, spiritual and cultural needs of our community during High Holy Days and beyond. Slifka Center maintains an ‘open door’ policy for the High Holy Days. However, as an independent not‐for‐profit organization that does not receive funding from Yale University, your voluntary contribution will support the vital services provided by the Center during the High Holy Days and throughout the year.  All donations to Slifka Center are fully tax deductible to the extent of the law.  Suggested donations for High Holy Day attendees:

  • $180 for adults and children
  • Current Yale students – complimentary

When you reserve a ticket, you may also reserve a free parking pass.  This parking pass will enable you to park at a legal metered parking spot during the time of services and meals during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
