Just a few notes…

Adult Services: This service is recommended for adults and children ages 10 and older. Enhanced by our professional choir and instrumentalists, our worship experience utilizes the Reform Movement’s High Holiday prayer book, Mishkan HaNefesh.

Family Services: Led by our clergy, this prayer service is designed for elementary school-aged children and their families, and often uses large screens to project prayers (instead of using a prayerbook).

Tot Services: Preschool-aged children and their families will love celebrating the High Holidays at this bite-sized service, led by our clergy, and featuring sing-along songs and stories.

Parking: There is off-site parking at the Scarsdale Pool, where we provide two comfortable Shuttle Buses for the quickest and most hassle-free way to get to and from services. Shuttle buses will be available for all services, for both Holidays (not for S’lichot nor Rosh HaShanah Second Day).

Security:  Have your High Holiday Ticket and Photo ID (for adults) ready to show at the entry.  Leave bags and packages at home; security will need to inspect any that you bring with you. Please avoid bringing unnecessary items into the building.

Community-wide Services: WRT offers certain services for the community (Members and non-Members are welcome) to attend at no charge (see the schedule of services). Registration is required for anyone who wishes to attend.

Childcare: Available at no charge for children 2-5 years old during the following services: Erev Rosh HaShanah, Rosh HaShanah morning, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur morning. Sign-up is requested in advance, so that we may plan appropriately. Click here to sign-up.

Reserved Accessible Seating is available for all Sanctuary services. There is a 2-seat request limit. If you have additional family members who would like to sit with you, please have them arrive early to find seating near your reserved placement. Click here to reserve seating online or call the temple office at 914-723-7727.

Large Print Prayer Books are available. Reserve your copy here or call the temple office at 914-723-7727.

Prayer books: Prayer books will be provided at services. Unfortunately, prayer books are not available for lending out (for live streaming from home).

Assistive Listening is now available within our Sanctuary. Listen to the services directly from your smart device. Full directions on how to download and use the app are available near the entrance of the Sanctuary. 

ASL interpretation is available upon request. Please contact the temple office at 914-723-7727 with your service time.  We can only work with requests made by August 18th.

Reciprocals:  WRT members in good standing may request tickets to attend services at other Reform congregations without charge. To place a request for a reciprocal letter, please contact the temple office at 914-723-7727 or click here to use the online form. You will need the name and address of the congregation, with whom you will be seated, and if attending services on Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, or both.

Similarly, your guests who are members in good standing at other congregations may request to attend at WRT at no charge. It is the responsibility of your guests to contact their congregation and have them send a reciprocal letter to the WRT office. Guest High Holiday Tickets issued without a reciprocal letter will be charged to the WRT member’s account.
