Members (Year Round)
 

As a member there is no charge for High Holiday tickets, however, it is expected that you register.  This allows us to plan for seating, security, food, and other contingencies.  Also, note that members must be considered in good financial standing (i.e. renewed their commitment for the 2017-2018 synagogue year and up-to-date in their annual dues payments) in order to be admitted to services.

Children's and Teen Programming

Our children's programming is coordinated by our Director of Education, Geoff Prass.  The program is an engaging, fun and meaningful, interactive program which will give participants the sights, smells, sounds, tastes, and traditions of the High Holidays.  This is all done in age-appropriate groups with other parents and teenagers helping facilitate.

In addition, we will have programming for teens (grades 8 to 12).  If you have children in this age group, who would be interested in attending this program during part of the service time period, please indicate that on this form.

Please note that all children are welcome and encouraged to attend the main service with their parents. Please keep your children with you during the service.

Book of Life

We are proud to continue the Book of Life program which follows the hallowed Jewish tradition of honoring the memory of our loved ones. The Book of Life will ensure that on the holiest of days, Yom Kippur, we remember and inscribe the names of those who have passed on. Names of loved ones who have passed away during the last year and are identified by an asterisk * will be read at the service.
