News and Events
The new year, Rosh Hashanah begins on Sunday evening October 2, heralding a time for celebration, contemplation, and gathering in community. This year i we’re being even more inclusive, ALL ARE WELCOME, NO TICKETS REQUIRED. Hoping to encourage you to bring friends and guests with you to High Holiday services, we will no longer require the purchase ofTishrei memberships or tickets for extended family or friends. We simply ask that you RSVP on line ahead of time, letting us know who to expect so that we can prepare name tags and ensure adequate seating. Do it now by following the link below to make your reservations (for friends, family, guests, and children needing childcare). Members do not need to make reservations for themselves, just for guests they expect to join them.
So, we will not be printing and mailing tickets this year. Members will receive a packet with the logistics. Once again, we strongly encourage members to make reservations for friends and family early, as we anticipate a higher number of reservations this year. Space may be limited.
