For Immediate Release [Hollywood, CA] – The Laugh Factory, Los Angeles’s premiere comedy club, ushers in the Jewish New Year with its joyous gift to the Jewish community – free High Holy day services.  This will be the 35th year the Laugh Factory will open its doors to the Jewish community for the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Jamie Masada, owner of the Laugh Factory said, “Two of the main reasons I love doing this is it gives so many actors, writers, comedians, and the entire Hollywood community who are away from their families a place to pray for the holidays.  And, with the economic crisis this country has been experiencing now for over a decade, so many people cannot afford the high cost of tickets that most temples charge in order to attend services.  At the Laugh Factory Temple, all are welcome to come and pray.”

Services are conducted in the Reform Jewish tradition by Rabbi Bob Jacobs. 

Rosh Hashanah will be celebrated on:

Monday, September 10, 2018

11:00 am until 1:00 pm with refreshments to follow


Yom Kippur will begin with the Kol Nidre service on:

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

5:00 pm to 6:30pm


Services will continue on the morning of:

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

11:00 am until 1:00 pm

Concluding with Neilah service from 5:30 pm until 6:15 pm.
