Ticket Pricing
All tickets are $54 which gains you entrance to all services listed above. We do not offer reduced ticket prices for single services. You must purchase a full price ticket even if you only attend a single service.

Yiskor
Because we completely sell out all 500 seats, we are unable to open the doors for community Yizkor, as this service is part of the Morning/Musaf Service on Yom Kippur. For security purposes, tickets are required for admission.

Seating
There is no reserved seating, however wheelchairs are easily accommodated in all rows. Doors open 30 minutes prior.

About Our Services
Many ask if we are Reform or Conservative , but we are neither! We are Jewish Renewal. We hope you will find our services enlightening and inspirational. We ask that you come prepared to participate in our singing and reading. There’s plenty of both English and Hebrew text, and easy to learn songs. Our liturgy is a combination of the traditional High Holidays chanting mixed with delightful and joyous songs taken from music around the world including Broadway and Rock and Roll. Our Machzor, High Holidays Prayerbook, was created exclusively for our Congregation by our founder, Rabbi Nessa Bush Chamberlain, of blessed memory, and her sister, our Cantor Bobra.

Our Mailing List and Priority Tickets
If you aren’t sure you are on our mailing list, please first wait until at least July 15th to see if you get a package. If you don’t get one by then, please print and mail the Ticket Reservation Form along with your payment.

IMPORTANT: Please note that we sell out EVERY YEAR, at least three weeks before Rosh Hashanah. That is why you do not see advertisements in any newspapers for our tickets.  Please note that if you purchased a ticket last year, or attended Chanukah or Purim since then, you will be given priority over new congregant requests until August 1st. On that day, we will open up the seating to newcomers. If you are a newcomer, please download this Ticket Reservation Form (click here to print) and mail us a check to the address on the form. We will place you on our waiting list in the order we receive your check. On August 1st, we will begin to process that list in order.  Within about one week of that, you will receive your tickets.  If you mail your check in late August, and we are sold out, we will mail you back your check promptly.
