Welcome to Congregation Beth El’s High Holiday web page. Below is a list of our High Holiday services.

שָׁנָה טוֹבָה וּמְתוּקָה

In line with our casual and heimesh atmosphere, Congregation Beth El does not require tickets to attend services, however, we are currently anticipating a full house at High Holiday services. Due to security and in order to make sure we have space, please let us know in advance that you are planning to attend by sending an email to info@bethelaustin.org In addition, if you are not a member of Beth El and attend the High Holiday services, we request you provide a donation to help us cover our costs and expenses. If we have space, there is no charge for students or active military.

Families are welcome to join us at Beth El for the Holidays. In addition to regular services we will be offering children’s programming and will have activities and programs for children during the services. Our High Holiday services are liturgically traditional, and mainly in Hebrew.

For those driving, parking is available on Jollyville Road, which is one street up Mesa Drive, to the northeast of the synagogue. Most of both sides of Jollyville Road are available for parking, with the exception of the areas identified with no parking signs.
