Congregation Shomrei Emunah, Montclair’s Conservative synagogue, is advertising in the New Jersey Jewish News about free tickets for High Holy Day services. College students with ID are eligible, as are non-members who’ve never attended High Holy Day services at Shomrei.
Temple Ner Tamid will also open its doors to students with ID for the High Holidays. The public will also be welcome on Erev Rosh Hashanah, second day of Rosh Hashanah, family services and the afternoon of Yom Kippur.
Security at all synagogues is expected to be very tight. Rosh Hoshana, the Jewish New Year, starts at sundown next Wednesday. Montclair and Glen Ridge schools are closed for the holiday on Thursday. Bloomfield schools will remain open.

  1. Temple Ner Tamid will be open to the public for Erev Rosh Hashanah, second day of Rosh Hashanah, family services & afternoon of Yom Kippur. And college kids are welcome to all services with ID. Despite the security, which is sadly necessary in this day and age, TNT will be as welcoming as possible to all.

  2. Congregation Ahavas Shalom on Broadway in Newark (about 15 minutes from Glen Ridge/Montclair), an egalitarian conservative synagogue with a mission of tzedakah and tikkun olam, and the heart of the Jewish revival in Newark, is free to students on the high holy days and welcomes all others. No tickets are needed and only a modest contribution (which also makes you a member of this unique synagogue) is requested.
