Other Holidays

We come together for other holidays throughout the year, & welcome those who may work downtown but wish to attend services, Yizkors, & other holiday services with us. Visit our Upcoming Events page for the schedule of holiday services & celebrations, including:


Saturday | March 23rd | The Boston Synagogue

Come as you are or in Costume! There will be light refreshments, hamantaschen & other treats + an open top shelf bar!  + mocktails for kids!

Megillah Reading with Carrie — 6:30 PM

The evening kicks off with Megillah Reading with parts in Hebrew + English with noise makers + other festivities!

Live Music + Dance Party at 7:30 PM

Featuring music from Zach Mayer’s NEW project. It’s a modern electronic spin on Middle Eastern music — that he explored during his stay last year in Jerusalem. It’s pulsing & exciting. Imagine a shuk– of music performed live with synthesizer, voice & saxophone!



Make your reservation for our festive Friday night dinner in our sukkah & watch the calendar for other events on the patio for Sukkot! We’re also conveniently located for a few hours of services if you work in down town, & we make available a few lulavs & etrogs. Services are followed by friendship & food in our fantastic sukkah during kiddush


Shemini Atzeret

Our Yizkor services remember our loved ones who have passed away. They are held on Yom Kippur, Shemini Atzeret, & the last days of Passover & Shavuot.

We typically hold both evening & morning services. The morning service includes the Yizkor memorial prayers.

Simchat Torah

Come celebrate with us at our evening festivities as we start anew & make l’chaim. Then join us the next morning — services start at the Synagogue & we then proceed with the Torah to the chapel at Mass General Hospital before returning for a festive kiddush at the Shul. Join us for this special mitzvah.



Enjoy fun, festive, & warm winter celebrations at the Synagogue. Our Chanukah events include spirited Friday night dinners, family celebrations, & YP parties — with latkes & dreidel, of course!



We celebrate Purim with a joyous celebration for all! Our Megillah reading & party are fun for all ages, with noisemakers, an entertaining skit by the Hebrew School students, Hamantaschen & appropriate libations. Costumes are always encouraged!



Join us for a warm & welcoming Passover Seder! Share your melodies & traditions with old friends & new! Both First Night & Second Night Sedars & Morning Services are offered.



Join us for services, dairy nosh, & interactive learning Erev Shavuot. We also make l’chaim with our craft Shavuot beer — which is brewed & bottled by our YP Community.
