The Civic Center is on Jog Road across from the Morikami Museum.
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.
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.
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.
To do our part in preserving our beautiful planet, we’ve sent our very last paper mailing on July 10th. All future communication will be here on the website and via email. If you didn’t receive the mailing, you may still purchase tickets below, and invite your friends to do so as well!
All ticket purchases will be made here online (see below). You will be able to use either a Master Card of Visa (no other cards) or your bank account. Please do NOT send any paper checks as we will need to return them to you. There is no longer a priority list, so please buy your tickets early. You will receive an email reply after paying for your tickets, and this will be your entry to the Services, so please print it, as we will not be able to view tickets on your smart phones. If you don’t receive an email with your tickets within a few minutes of completing your purchase, please check your spam folder. If you lose your emailed tickets, we WILL have an alphabetized list at the front door, but please make sure that you come as a single party, if you purchase more than one set. If your friends want to come, have them purchase tickets in their OWN NAME, so they can arrive separately. The site will automatically stop selling tickets when it has sold 500 seats!
Important Note: To thank you for supporting us, if you purchased tickets to last year’s years Zoom service, you will be provided the same quantity of complimentary tickets to this year, via email. For example, if you bought one ticket, but you need two for this year, you will need to purchase only one more ticket. We will be sending you a ticket voucher via email that will show how many tickets you purchased last year, and those will be your free tickets for this year. Please be patient with us, while we arrange this.
Yiskor Donation Tickets
We will make Yiskor donations available through this website at the conclusion of Yiskor, during the morning service of Yom Kippur. We will provide all attendees with a reminder card to come back here to make your Yiskor donations.
