Secular High Holiday Observances

Rooted in a Jewish commitment to social justice, we have created unique programs of readings, reflection, and singing for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Whatever your level of Jewish knowledge - however you might define your own spirituality - we invite you to join us.


  • To respect the privacy of the hundreds of participants on the live call, we are making the full recordings of the services only available to who registered. If you attended services with us, an email with a link to the recording was emailed to your household. Not seeing it in your inbox? Email

The High Holidays are the most highly attended gatherings of the year at Boston Workers 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.

Your High Holiday contribution sustains the community that makes these observances possible. Boston Workers Circle depends on the support we receive at the holidays each year. At the same time, we are committed to making sure that all feel welcome at our observances. You are always welcome whatever you are able to pay.
