High Holy Days

Dear Friends,

Find your center here with us these High Holy Days at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons. We look forward to seeing you during this time of renewal and elevated spirituality.

Please join us in preparing for this sacred and special time by sharing your holiday plans with us on the attached request forms. We hope to welcome you, as we welcome in the Days of Awe together.

These High Holy Days, explore the words that help lift our souls to genuine self-evaluation and resolve. Embrace the moments of introspection as we discover who it is that we are meant to be. Connect to your Hamptons Jewish community, and work to connect to something larger than yourself. Hear the sounding of the Shofar that awakens our souls, and calls us to dream of a more perfect time to come.

Join with us here in the heart of the Hamptons. Together we will rejoice in the new possibilities that await, express gratitude for the blessings of our lives, and sing the sacred melodies that connect to the Jewish past, present, and future.

L’Shanah Tovah Tikatevu… may you, your families, and all of us be inscribed for a good year of bountiful blessings.

High Holy Days Appeal

From 1959 through 2019 – we were there for it all.

We rejoiced at the births of children and grandchildren, celebrated at the coming-of-age
at Bar and Bat Mitzvah, danced at weddings and shed tears at the passing of loved ones.
We are caregivers.
We are educators of a lifetime of Jewish values and traditions.
Values that begin with a child’s first steps and traditions that continue for a lifetime.

This is our mission. For the last 60 years and for the next 60 years.
We are the Jewish Center of the Hamptons.
We build Jewish lives.

Make a difference today with your donation to our High Holy Day Appeal.
Your impact will last a lifetime.

In addition, we have made arrangements with the Village of East Hampton to provide some overflow parking at Main Beach, Lot 2 (87 Ocean Avenue). A JCOH staff member will be driving a marked van to escort you and your family from Main Beach to our tent.

Please make every effort to leave yourselves extra time to enter our tent for High Holy Day services this year.
