Location

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.

Mailing List
To do our part in protecting our beautiful planet, we are only sending postcard reminders to purchase tickets here on our website, but the postcard receipt is not necessary for you to purchase and join.

Tickets
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 via an ACH payment with your bank account (checking or savings) using a routing and account number.  We do NOT have any access to your personal financial data, credit card numbers, or bank accounts, as all processing is done by an external, very secure merchant service.  No information is stored on Gan Eden’s website.  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.  Note: if you lose this email reply, 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.  The site will automatically stop selling tickets when it has sold 500 seats!

We anticipate this to be a re-building year, due to COVID-19.  Please encourage your family and friends to join us for a joyful reunion of the Gan Eden Family.

Yiskor Donation Tickets
You will see that you can that you can, at ANY time, make your Yiskor donations.   We will remind you during Yom Kippur to come back to this site to make those donations.  Each donation ticket = $1, so for example, if you want to donate $36 to Hospice and $18 to the Soup Kitchen, you would buy 36 tickets and then 18 tickets in each category.  You will only get one email receipt for your entire purchase.  All Yiskor donations will be bundled in October (with absolutely no reduction) and sent to the charities with additional monies added from general funds on behalf of the entire congregation.  If you buy your service tickets now, and wish to come back later on to make your Yiskor donations, you WILL be able to do that. 

Volunteer Assistance
If you are able to assist us with setting up the Civic Center, please EMAIL us at events@congregationganeden.org and tell us which time slot(s) work for you.  Here are the two slots:

  • Sunday, September 25th at 10am at the Civic Center
  • Tuesday, October 4th at 10am at the Civic Center

IMPORTANT: Please do NOT just show up to the Civic Center at those times.  We need you to email us and let us know you want to volunteer, as the County often moves our setup times to different days and times as we get close to the event.

Questions?
If you have questions, please email us at events@congregationganeden.org, as we don’t have any staff answering calls.
