You can book your tickets for the High Holidays now using this online form.

You can use the form to book tickets for you and your family and friends, and order Rosh Hashanah lunch and prayer books (machzorim). Please complete the form by 8th September. It should take about 15 minutes to complete. If you have problems with the form, please contact our administrator Edwin.

Ticket prices

Tickets are free for members of Kehillah North London.

We do ask non-members to contribute to the costs of supporting our Kehillah throughout the year though your donation for a High Holiday ticket. This enables us to sustain our community and your contribution is very important to us. If you do decide to join us as a full member before the High Holidays, you will of course be welcome to come to all services without any further donation!

Ticket prices are:

Paid-Up Supporting Friends of Kehillah: £42 per adult

Non-members for all services (waged): £90 per adult

Students and Children (under 18) go free.

NB: No one will be turned away for financial reasons.

Rosh Hashanah Lunch will be from 1.30pm at Trangallan, a few minutes walk from New Unity at 61 Newington Green, N16 9PX (on the corner of Ferntower Road). We ask everyone intending to stay for lunch to please book in advance using the booking form above, as we need to know how many people to cater for.

  • £15 per adult
