Ticket Information

Health and Safety Guidelines:

In line with Northwestern University’s requirement that all students, faculty and staff must be vaccinated against COVID-19, we expect all High Holiday attendees to be fully vaccinated in order to attend services in person. We will have a livestream option for our Reform services for those who are not vaccinated.

All participants must keep their mask on at all times.

We're pleased to welcome full-time university students - at Northwestern or any other university - free of charge and without reserved tickets. Simply bring your University ID.

All others must purchase tickets. Why do we charge for admission?

When you buy a ticket for the High Holidays at Northwestern, you not only attend some of the best services on the North Shore, you touch the lives of hundreds of Jewish students and thousands of Jewish alumni.


Your ticket enables Northwestern Hillel to bring wonderful High Holiday service leaders and also supports our Shabbat dinners, Birthright Israel trips, theater performances, a capella singing, and an exceptional Hillel staff.

Northwestern Hillel is committed to welcoming all to attend our High Holiday services, regardless of their financial situation. To inquire about financial assistance, please call Ronna Belinky at (847) 467-4455; all inquiries will be kept confidential.

We encourage you to consider sponsoring part of our services. Sponsorship opportunities include new machzorim (prayer books); and subsidized tickets for young alumni and other young adults in the Chicago area. To discuss a meaningful contribution, please contact Rachel Morof at

We wish you and your loved ones a New Year filled with sweetness, good health, and joy!
