  • High Holidays 5783

Join Harvard Hillel for a joyous, meaningful, and memorable High Holiday season.

For current Harvard students, their Harvard ID will admit them to any and all of our services.

All others can get tickets here for access to any and all of the services listed below.


  • When you get tickets online, the confirmation email you receive serves as your ticket. 

  • In accordance with Harvard Hillel's commitment to sustainability, we ask that you do not print out multiples of the email, even if you have requested multiple tickets; one copy will admit you and the number of guests you have listed. 

  • Those who request tickets by mail or phone will be mailed tickets.

Should you wish to order tickets by check, one can be mailed to:

Harvard Hillel

Harvard Hillel turns nobody away for financial reasons. If the suggested donation amounts are prohibitive, please send us an email.

Reform Minyan:
Masks are encouraged, but not required.
