Harvard Hillel asks members of our community and guests (with the exception of Harvard undergrad and graduate students) to purchase tickets in order to attend the Orthodox Minyan's High Holiday services. Hillel generously provides our community with many resources. Proceeds from ticket sales help cover Rav Marlowe's salary, the Minyan's programming budget, security coverage, building maintenance, and more. Tickets can be purchased at this link. If the suggested donations are prohibitive, please reach out to Hillel - nobody will be turned away for financial reasons. Feel free to contact our leadership with any questions.

We wish the entire community a ketiva v'chatima tova.
