News and Events
The High Holidays bring a fresh start to a new year, a time for celebration and contemplation. This year, we approach the holidays in a new way. In order to be more inclusive, we will not be selling Tishrei memberships or family tickets; we simply ask that you RSVP ahead of time so we can ensure we have adequate seating. Reservations must be made online for friends, family, and guests; however, members do not need to make reservations for themselves.
We will not be printing and mailing tickets this year, though members will receive a packet with the logistics. We strongly encourage members to make reservations for friends and family early, as we anticipate a higher number of reservations this year. Space is limited. Please check in at the reception table.
