The West Side Minyan conducts open, warm, friendly, egalitarian, traditional Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur Services on the Upper West Side.

Our services, for singles and families of all ages, are led by knowledgeable members of our
own community. Beautiful Havurah-style services are conducted in a comfortable space in a
mixture of Hebrew and English. Translations are available, communal singing is encouraged.

Let your New Year begin on a high note!!

We meet at
Congregation Ansche Chesed
100 Street and West End Avenue.
West Side Minyan services are on the 5th floor. Times are subject to change!

  1. Every one should order a ticket (at no charge) from Ansche Chesed in advance of the Holidays. Members of Ansche Chesed already have ticket order forms. If you are not a member of Ansche Chesed, please print and mail the non-member ticket request form. Note that you need to order by August 27 to receive tickets by mail; after that date, you will need to get your tickets from the Ansche Chesed office. Please do not ask West Side Minyan for tickets: we have none to issue. Only the Ansche Chesed office issues tickets.
  2. If you do not order a ticket in advance, you must bring a picture ID and request admission to West Side Minyan services on the 5th floor. Security will not admit people without ticket or picture ID, for the safety of the community. Please bring a minimum of carry-ins as security will examine all bags. We urge everyone to comply with security out of respect for each other and for the entire community.

Childcare and Family Services

Ansche Chesed offers family services as well as childcare on both holidays but you must register in advance; call the office at 212-865-0600 for more information. 

Kiddush and Break-Fast

We will have a Kiddush on both days of Rosh Hashanah following our morning services, and we will offer a light break-fast after Yom Kippur Maariv service.
