High Holiday Services | 5777

at Congregation B’nai Abraham of Philadelphia | Society Hill

What are “User-Friendly” Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah services?

Our technical support team consists of Rabbi Yochonon & Rebbetzin Leah Goldman, Rabbi Hirshi & Rebbetzin Shevy Sputz, & Cantor Levi Abramowitz as well as our host lay leaders who aim to make your High Holidays visit to the Center City, Philadelphia synagogue in Society Hill a truly meaningful experience. They will walk you through the prayers and provide explanations and anecdotes throughout the services.

In addition to the main service, we offer supplementary interactive classes during the service which will take place in the lower level sanctuary of our shul. Services are free of charge (no high holiday tickets required) and a delicious lunch buffet follows morning services on both days of Rosh Hashanah.


A break-the-fast buffet will follow Yom Kippur services. There is a charge for the meals (see below) and reservations are required.

Donations are always welcome and appreciated

Services are 100% free, but for security purposes please complete our 1-minute registration form below.
We look forward to personally welcoming you to B’nai Abraham!
