Visitors from South Africa and abroad are invited by Rabbi Saar Shaked to spend the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at the friendly and welcoming Beit Emanuel Progressive Synagogue in Parktown Johannesburg. Our services are based on the new international machzor, Mishkan Hanefesh, which re-incorporates many of the traditional elements.
Beit Emanuel is conveniently located close to the main M1 motorway and the Oxford Road arterial. We are a five-minute drive from the city centre to the south and the business and hotel hub of Rosebank to the north.
This year, Rosh Hashanah runs from Sunday night 29 September, to the evening of Tuesday, 1 October. Yom Kippur is on Tuesday night 8 October and Wednesday 9 October.
If you wish to attend, please notify us at least two days in advance by emailing your personal details to Morgana Segel at [email protected], or complete the form on our Website here: http://www.beitemanuel.co.za/contact-us/forms/.
The fee for attendance on the High Holy Days is R360 per person (R540 per couple/single plus children or R720 per family). Those attending will need copies of the two volume machzor, Mishkan Hanefesh. Those who do not have this machzor, may arrange to buy the two-volume set for R700. Please contact Financial Administrator Christine McIntosh in this regard.
