High Holidays Central

Congregation Bet Haverim's High Holiday Services are open to all who wish to join us at no cost.
We offer a variety of services, children's services and child care, and we invite you to join us for Break the Fast following Yom Kippur.

Ticket-free services 
All services are ticket-free. Just come and find a seat. 
If you are attending as a guest, please RSVP in advance here.
♦ Please be aware of our High Holiday Seat Policy.
♦ Read the High Holiday D'vars
All services will be held at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 1790 LaVista Road NE, Atlanta, GA, unless otherwise noted. MAP



Children's services will be held Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings.
Childcare is available for infants and children's programming is available for children up to age 10 for First Day Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur morning, but SPACE IS LIMITED.
Please reserve your spot early. 


There is a parking lot behind St. Bartholomew’s, and it does typically fill up during services. Parking throughout the neighborhood is permissible (but not on LaVista Road). Please do NOT park in any spots marked Reserved for St. Bart's. We are guests in their home, please be respectful of their designated parking. 



These are opportunities to experience a sense of belonging in different ways. Please participate as you are so moved.  

Prayer Wall

On Rosh Hashanah we will have a prayer wall.  This will be an opportunity to offer up private prayers and place them together as an expression of personal and communal longing. 

Memorial Table

On Yom Kippur, we will have a memorial table where you are invited to bring pictures or other mementos of those whom you are remembering. (All items can be collected when needed.) 

Al Chet

Submit your Al Chet to the community. It may be read aloud on Yom Kippur.

Yizkor Memorial Book

We are proud to continue the Book of Life - Yizkor Memorial Book which follows the Jewish tradition of honoring the memory of our loved ones.  Yizkor Memorial Book will ensure that on the holiest of days, Yom Kippur, we remember and inscribe the names of those who have passed on. Names of loved ones who have passed away during the last year will be read at the service.

CLICK HERE to add you loved ones’ names to the Book of Life.


Please sign up to bring something to one of our onegs on Rosh Hashanah, or to the break the fast gathering.

Operation Isaiah

Operation Isaiah is an annual food drive throughout the Jewish community held in conjunction with the High Holy Days. At this time of year, Jewish tradition stipulates that in addition to prayer and repentance, one must offer tzedakah (charity) as both an act of contrition and in recognition of our responsibility to care for those amongst us in need. Donation bins will be set up at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. Please donate non-perishable food items that would help to feed a family of four for a day. 


If you require sign language interpretation, please let us know and we will try to arrange it.

Wheel chair accessible seating is available. Please arrive 30 minutes early in order to reserve the seats nearby.
