To pay by check, please see the rates below and mail a check to 6 Webster St. Brookline, MA 02446 with a note about how many seats you need for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.


Each year we invite all interested participants to help lead our High Holiday observances by reading a section of our unique and original program out loud. Please contact Linda Gritz if you are interested in being a reader. Children and adults are encouraged to participate!  

The High Holidays are the most highly attended gatherings of the year at Boston Workmen's Circle. They inspire, uplift, and remind us of the power of community.

Observances take place on the morning of the first day of Rosh Hashanah and on the morning of Yom Kippur. Adults and children of all ages are welcome.

Our Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur children's programs will be at the same time as the regular community-wide services from 10 AM - 12 PM in the Eliot Church Parlor. Parents can drop off their children ages 4-7 for fun, meaningful Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur programs with stories, songs, and hands-on activities. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Click here for more information.
