High Holiday 

Information Guide

Warm, Welcoming Downtown Toronto
Jewish High Holidays Services & Programs
at the Miles Nadal jcc and The First Narayever 





We offer a variety of services, programs and alternative ritual approaches for the community's High Holiday experience. As an unaffiliated, egalitarian synagogue, men and women can participate equally in all aspects of our services. Our warm and welcoming community encourages people to participate in the proceedings according to their own comfort levels. Led by Rabbi David Weiss, our main service at the Miles Nadal JCC utilizes the Conservative Harlow Machzor that follows the format of a traditional High Holy Day service.



Tickets for our services at the MNjcc are available for purchase in advance through the shul office (info below), and at the MNjcc Information Desk. Tickets for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Services are also included as one of the benefits of Narayever membership, and we welcome members of the wider Toronto Jewish community to consider affiliating with our warm and welcoming shul. Ticket sales help us to pay for the service itself as well as supporting the work of the First Narayever Congregation, and the amount paid can be applied toward the cost of a shul membership. With this support, we can continue to be a vibrant traditional egalitarian synagogue for Jews of all ages in downtown Toronto.

We look forward to welcoming both shul members and the wider Toronto Jewish community to worship and celebrate with us on the High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as we do throughout the year.

High Holidays: Kids, Teens and Families

The First Narayever offers a variety of high quality services and programming for children, youth and their families on the High Holidays. We've crafted this schedule of programs at the MNjcc for those 18 years of age + under so that you and your family can enjoy an age-appropriate High Holiday experience!

A Commitment to Inclusion and Accessibility
Those of you participating in services in either location, but especially at the MNjcc, will observe the current results of our ongoing commitment to increased accessibility of our services. We continue to work to design prayer spaces where everyone can participate. If you require braille or large print materials, ASL interpretation, or any other accommodation to attend the High Holy Day Services, then please contact the Narayever office by September 8 at 416-927-0546 or and we will make every effort to assist you.
