Rosh Hashanah 2022: Know Before You Go

Sep 22, 2022 / 26 Elul, 5782

We are so excited about the tremendous response to Rosh Hashanah services and look forward to welcoming you. We want your arrival at 8500 Hillcrest or on Temple livestream to be easy, to maximize your joy, and to connect you to community. Here is some information to help.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at or call 214.706.0000.

In-Person Services

Digital Admission: Your admission to High Holy Day services is tied to a QR code that you received when you completed your online registration, it will give you access to all services you registered for this year. An email reminder will be sent Friday, September 23, at 10:30 a.m. from Temple Emanu-El to every email address associated with a registration. Look for the subject line, Registration Confirmed — High Holy Days. Be prepared to show your QR code at the single entrance to the Temple parking lot (Hillcrest Road) or before boarding the complimentary shuttles at NorthPark. There is no need to print it if you have easy access to it on your phone.

Lost or Missing QR Code: Registered members who arrive at Temple and cannot locate their QR code will be asked to pull aside in the parking lot for assistance and further instruction.

Guests: If you are looking for more information on how to register a guest, please contact us at 

Additional Worship Spaces: The Celebration Garden and Linz Hall will be open for overflow seating. Water stations will be available, and you can follow along on a screen displaying the service in Olan Sanctuary.

All-Gender Bathrooms: Two Temple restrooms identified by the sign “Everyone” are available in the hallway leading to the Early Childhood Education Center, near the men’s restroom.

Parking: Our parking lots are expected to fill up quickly. As in past years, comfortable shuttle buses will be available between NorthPark Center and Temple during the High Holy Days. Catch the shuttle at the Macy’s parking lot facing Park Lane. Our access entrance in the back of Olan Sanctuary will be open for drop-off only for those who need mobility assistance or a shorter walk. When you arrive, let our security team know that you are looking for the access entrance and they will guide you.

Shuttle Rides: Temple will have multiple golf carts in the parking lot to offer rides to people from their cars to the access entrance of Olan Sanctuary and doors to Tycher Gathering Space.

Security: Security is a priority at Temple. In order to keep everyone safe and keep the entry process as quick as possible, please refrain from bringing large handbags, backpacks or duffel bags to Temple. Occasional searches may be necessary at the discretion of security personnel.

Online Services

Livestreaming: This year, all livestreamed services will be available HERE on the Temple website. Services will be available to watch immediately after the conclusion of the live recording. That way, if you are used to attending a later version of a duplicate service, you can still watch at your preferred time.

Creating Your Sanctuary: The phrase hiddur mitzvah means to elevate your celebration. Whether it’s a new Kiddush cup, fresh flowers by your computer, a special tablecloth or a fabulous piece of Judaica, adding an aesthetic dimension to our surroundings helps us to enter more fully into the holiday. See this insert from the special book we prepared for our online observance of the 2020 High Holy Days.
