High Holiday Services

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

 

Tickets for our services at the MNjcc are available for purchase in advance by completing this form, through the shul office (info below), and by going in person to the MNjcc Information Desk. To see a full list of ticket prices please click HERE. 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.

To purchase High Holiday tickets, please complete this form. To learn more please email us at info@narayever.ca or call the synagogue office at 416-927-0546.

High Holiday Transportation and Parking


The MNjcc is located at 750 Spadina Ave., across Bloor St. from Spadina subway station. It is most easily reached on foot or by public transportation, but there are several parking lots nearby.

Maps and directions can be found at http://www.mnjcc.org/about-us/getting-to-us.

If you do park on a side street, we would recommend one of the following:

- Lowther Ave from Spadina Rd to Bedford Rd
- Major St from College Ave to Bloor St W
- Borden St from College Ave to Bloor St W
- Washington Ave from Spadina Ave to Huron St

 

We have received parking consideration from Toronto Police Services for those streets at all times that services are happening, You may wish to print the page out and display it on your dashboard to remind parking enforcement staff of its existence. Note that the First Narayever Congregation will not be responsible if you correctly or incorrectly incur a parking ticket.


 

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 info@narayever.ca and we will make every effort to assist you.
