Important Information

  • High Holiday tickets are offered at no cost to current members of Congregation Hakafa and are required for all High Holiday Services except for Family Services and services at CJE's Robineau House.
  • High Holiday Services are held at Winnetka Congregational Church (725 Pine Street), located east of Green Bay Road, west of Sheridan Road, and right around the corner from the Winnetka Community House.
  • Since the Congregation does not own a supply of High Holiday prayer books, it is necessary for each congregation member to bring his or her own prayer book. Gates of Repentance: The New Union Prayer Book for the Days of Awe is available to order on the ticket request form.  Preordered books will be available in the lobby of Winnetka Congregational Church before services. They must be ordered in advance.
  • There is no minimum age for attending the regular services, but we ask that children be mature enough to sit through the service.
  • For adults who want to attend the morning services without their children, child-sitting is available for children 5th Grade and younger. Pre-registration is required on the ticket request form. 
  • Family Services will be held at 1:30 p.m. on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. While open to everyone, these services are especially suitable for younger children. Tickets are not required for Family Services.
  • We suggest that everyone plan to arrive early enough to park and be seated before services begin.
