High Holiday Seats

Dear Members and Friends,

Rosh Hashanah 5782 will be observed on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 7th and 8th 2021.

Yom Kippur begins Wednesday evening, September 15th. We are looking forward to a meaningful and spiritual Yamim Noraim together.

Seats for all minyanim will be sold online and through the mail. If you wish to reserve the seats you occupied in 2019, the most recent year with our regular seating arrangements, please complete your High Holiday seat reservation by August 4th. All seats not reserved by this date will become available on a first come, first served basis. If you did not reserve seats in 2019, or have a different need, please indicate that when completing your reservation form. The seating committee will contact you if we have any questions or are unable to honor your request. All seat reservations must be submitted by August 29th.

The income from the sale of High Holiday seats provides critical funds needed to operate the shul both during the holiday season and throughout the year. As has been the case for many years, members are entitled to seats at a reduced rate.
