Join us for the High Holidays at Shir Tikvah

We will be offering in-person High Holiday services for the fall of 2022, with one seating per service.  Our High Holiday services will also be available virtually via livestream at (on the front page under the "livestream with us" block) and on our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.

Our congregation will follow the current COVID protocols put in place by our Health & Safety Task Force (based on guidance from the CDC and state and local authorities) for in-person services.  If you attend the holiday services in-person, masks are strongly encouraged while you are inside the building.  We will also have an abundance of seating available to allow for physical distancing during each service.

Tickets are required for Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah Morning, Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur morning services.  These services are open to all members ages 12 and above.  Families with kids under 8 years of age are invited to attend our children's services on the afternoon of each holiday at 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. (see below for details) and, weather-permitting, they will be held outdoors.

Tickets are included with a Shir Tikvah membership and are not sold separately.  Membership at Shir Tikvah is on a pledge-based system, which allows each household to self-select the level at which they are able to support the shul for the year.  If you are a Prospective Member interested in attending High Holiday services or in membership, please contact our Executive Director, Lorelei Berg, at or (248) 649-4418 x 1 for more information.  We would love to have you join us for the holidays!
