Federation Offers Free High Holiday Tickets for Newcomers

MetroPass, a collaborative program between Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ and area synagogues, is designed to provide newcomers to our community—or to synagogue life—with complimentary High Holiday tickets. In its seventh year, this program is designed to lower the barriers of entry and to encourage Jewish people in Greater MetroWest (including Essex, Morris, Union, Sussex and parts of Somerset counties) to participate in Jewish life.

This year 47 synagogues, covering every geographical area and denomination, are participating in the program. The application process includes a series of questions to help identify the best match for each individual or family looking for a place to worship.

“This program has been very successful over the years,” said Federation’s Manager of Synagogue Initiatives Sarah Segal. “Last year, 115 families requested tickets from 24 different synagogues. The program enables people in the community who are not yet members of synagogues to experience the High Holidays at a synagogue that fits their needs. It’s a win-win. Families and individuals explore new places to worship and synagogues identify prospective new congregants.”

The request form for MetroPass tickets is available at www.jfedgmw.org/metropass until September 12. For more information contact Alejandra Castano at [email protected] or 973-929-2961.

Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ (Federation) stands at the center of a network of partner agencies dedicated to providing comprehensive social services and meeting the educational, vocational, recreational and social needs of Jews locally, in Israel and in 70 countries around the world. Responding to emergency and disaster situations around the world is another important part of the Federation mission.
