UJA-Federation of New York Connects the Jewish Community to High Holiday Services

For More Than 20 Years, UJA-Federation Has Helped Families and Individuals Find a Place to Participate in High Holiday Services

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) - The High Holidays -- that begin with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, at sundown on Sunday, September 16, 2012 -- are a time for reflection and introspection. They also provide a unique opportunity for the Jewish community to reach out to and engage all those who wish to attend High Holiday services but might not have a place to go.

In an effort to respond to this need during the Jewish holidays, UJA-Federation of New York has once again compiled a comprehensive guide for New Yorkers who are not members of a synagogue but are looking for a place to connect with the Jewish community during the High Holidays. Through its free J-1-1 Information & Referral Center, UJA-Federation is able to refer families and individuals to Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur services of all denominations that are open to nonmembers.

Those interested in finding out about High Holiday services throughout the five boroughs, Westchester, and Long Island are encouraged to contact UJA-Federation's free J-1-1 Information & Referral Center Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (EDT), at 1.877.852.6951 or J11@ujafedny.org.

By offering this free resource, UJA-Federation of New York continues its role as a leader in creating a caring, inspired, and connected Jewish community. For more information, please visit www.ujafedny.org/high-holidays-services/.
