High Holiday 2017 Tickets & Seating

Dear CBSBH member,

The time is fast approaching for us to celebrate our second High Holidays together with our loved ones, in our new home. We look forward to welcoming you.

Due to space limitations, and in order to guarantee seats for you and your household, we must receive your High Holiday seat reservation form by September 8th. * If you want to sit in the main sanctuary on Day 1 of Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur (including Kol Nidrei), then you must request a ticket(s), even if it is included with your membership. Seats are available to all members in good standing. This means that all past dues and a portion of your current dues must be paid. Those who have questions or concerns about their status in this regard are encouraged to contact either Lesley Acton Savitz, President (Lesley@lesleyacton.com) or Jay Balaban, Treasurer (balaban.jay@gmail.com).

Synagogue members: Family members receive two tickets to all services, and single members receive one ticket. Tickets are not included with associate membership.

If you are an associate member, then you will need to purchase tickets if you wish to sit in the main sanctuary on Day 1 of Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur (including Kol Nidrei).

Tickets are not required for Rosh Hashana Day 1 afternoon service, Rosh Hashana Day 2 services, Neilah (end of Yom Kippur), or congregational break-fast.

Please read our seating policy carefully, and call or email the office with any questions.

*After all current members have reserved their tickets we will then open reservations to non-members for any remaining available seats. We expect this to occur after September 8th.
