Join us for High Holy Days as we return to our home and come together as a congregation!

Introducing our new booking process for High Holy Day Seats

 Since our last in-person High Holy Days at Shaarey Zedek Synagogue in 2019, our community has undergone a series of existential challenges from the pandemic to the current war in Israel. Throughout this whole time, we have continued to push forward with a major renovation because despite the difficulties, we continue to believe that there is a vibrant future here in Manitoba for our Jewish community.

 Last Fall, we felt energized as we came together as a community with over 800 people for services. This year, more than ever, we need to feel empowered as a community. As we unite our congregation by combining first and second services, we hope to rekindle this sense of unity.

We welcome back Rabbi Alan Green, Rabbi Emeritus

 Introducing our new booking process for High Holy Day Seats

 An opportunity for a fresh start while respecting our traditions!

The challenges of combining the first and second services involve seating overlaps when accommodating both groups of congregants. This, along with the new seating layout in the Sanctuary, Chapel, and Auditorium to comply with building codes, presents an opportunity for a fresh start. Our goal is to maintain organized, orderly, and fair seat arrangements. We will be selling seats in stages, as per the President's directive, starting with those who have been members the longest, and continuing sales throughout the summer. You will receive one-week advance notice by email or mail before sales begin in your membership grouping. Sales will commence with members who have been part of the congregation for 40+ years.

 If you are looking to book tickets for online viewing of services only, you can do this anytime starting Thursday, July 11 at

While you wait for notification that seat arrangements are beginning in your membership grouping, please make note of the number of seats you will need, the names of the people you are arranging tickets for, and if you would like seats in a similar location to what you’ve had in the past. To see a map of the new layout, please click here. As a member, you can arrange seats for your immediate family as you have in the past – generations up and down – at member prices as long as you are paying for the seats. When your grouping is announced, you will be provided with a link to a web form to provide this information. These requests will be processed on a first come first serve basis.

We aim to organize this process and reduce stress for our congregation and staff. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we navigate this new procedure.

Thank you, 

Dr. Rena Secter Elbaze
