This is the registration site to attend the 2021 High Holiday Services with Dennis Prager. Services are non-denominational and people of every background are welcome.
Please note: This is the registration site to attend the services this year in person. For those who aren't comfortable attending live services or don't live in the Southern California region, there will be live-streaming of the services. The live-streaming operation is being run by Dennis's radio syndicator, and the site to register for on-line access can be found here.
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services will be held this year at a private venue in Sherman Oaks.
Dennis will be leading four services:
- The first evening of Rosh Hashanah (Monday, September 6)
- The first day of Rosh Hashanah (Tuesday, September 7)
- The eve of Yom Kippur — Kol Nidre (Wednesday night, September 15)
- The day of Yom Kippur (Thursday all day, September 16)
Erev Rosh Hashanah (evening service)
7:30 PM – 10:00 PM (candle lighting is at 6:54)
Rosh Hashanah (morning service)
10:00 AM – 1:30 PM
(Please note: There will be no services on the second evening and second day of Rosh Hashanah.)
Erev Yom Kippur – Kol Nidre (evening service)
7:30 PM – 10:00 PM (sunset is at 6:58 PM; the traditional fast begins at 6:42 PM)
Yom Kippur (morning/day service)
11:30 AM – 6:57 PM (the traditional fast ends at 7:35 PM)
Those of you who have been with us in the past know that Dennis remains at services all day on Yom Kippur. In the afternoon, during the two-hour break, he is available to talk with you and answer questions about God, faith, religion, Judaism, life – anything except politics. (Dennis's statement on this: "I feel strongly that the High Holy Days not be used as a forum for political advocacy.")
Once you have purchased tickets, you will receive details such as the address of the venue for services, times, and other relevant information.
Please note that as we are obligated to pay expenses for all services on any given day, we are unable to accommodate requests to purchase tickets for only an evening or day service for one of the holidays. Thank you for your understanding.
Prices (including valet parking & tip):
$250 per adult (Rosh Hashanah only)
$250 per adult (Yom Kippur only)
$350 per adult (both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur)
One minor child accompanied by an adult: Half the above prices.
All additional children under 18 accompanied by an adult are free (people are encouraged to bring their own children, as well as nieces, nephews, grandchildren, neighbor’s kids, etc.).

- Parking is limited at the venue, so valet parking and tip are included in the ticket price; no money will be needed upon or arrival or departure for parking services.
- We apologize, but for those who prefer not to drive on the holidays, there is not a hotel within easy walking distance. However, there are hotels in the area. The two closest are Hampton Inn & Suites (.7 mile away) and Best Western Plus Carriage Inn (.8 mile). There are a variety of additional options for lodging in the area at varying distances and price points.
It is our goal that these services will be among the most meaningful of your life. Dennis will explain or comment on almost all prayers, and will speak about God, life, and our individual situations.
Cantor Michael Freed, along with a small choir and instrumental accompaniment, will lead us in song and prayer.
