This is the registration site for 2012 High Holiday Services with Dennis Prager. Services are non-denominational and people of every background are welcome.
Our heartfelt thanks to all who attended for helping to make another year's services successful and meaningful!
Check this site for info about 2013 services beginning early to mid-July. (Rosh Hashanah 2013 is Sept. 4-5 and Yom Kippur is Sept. 13-14.)
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services this year will be held in Burbank, very close to Burbank Airport.
Dennis will be leading four services:
1. The first evening of Rosh Hashanah (Sunday, September 16)
2. The first day of Rosh Hashanah (Monday, September 17)
3. The eve of Yom Kippur (Tuesday night, September 25)
4. The day of Yom Kippur (Wednesday all day, September 26).
(Please note: We sometimes receive requests to purchase tickets for only the evening or only the day service for one or the other holiday. We regret that we are unable to accommodate such requests because we are obligated to pay the expenses for both the evening and day service. Thank you for your understanding.)
(Please note: There will be no services on the second evening and second day of Rosh Hashanah.)
Yom Kippur evening service: 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm (but note that the fast begins at 6:47 pm)
Yom Kippur morning/day service: 11:30 am – 6:45 pm.
Those of you who have been with me in the past know that I remain at services all day on Yom Kippur. In the afternoon during the two-three hour break I am available to talk with you and answer questions about God, faith, religion, Judaism, life – anything except politics. (I feel strongly that the High Holy Days not be used as a forum for political advocacy.)
Once you are registered, you will receive information as to the exact location of the service, the times, and other information.
The prices are as follows:
$175 per person for Rosh Hashanah only
$175 per person for Yom Kippur only
$225 per person for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
Half the above prices for the first minor child accompanied by an adult;
All additional children under 18 accompanied by an adult are free (this is to encourage people to bring their children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, neighbor’s kids).
$75 flat rate for college students (whether they come for one of all four services).
Please note: There is a parking fee of $8 per car, per day that is paid directly to the venue.
It is our goal that these services wil be among the most meaningful of your life. Dennis will be explaining or commenting on almost all prayers and speaking about God, life, and our personal situations. Cantor Michael Freed, along with a small choir and instrumental accompaniment, will lead us in song and prayer.
