Dear CBSBH member,

We are so excited to celebrate our first High Holidays in our new home! This is a tremendous milestone for our community, and we are looking forward to sharing it with you and your loved ones.

Due to space limitations, we need to receive your High Holiday seat reservation form by September 8th in order to guarantee seats for you and your household. We’ve outlined this year’s seating policy below – please read the rest of this letter carefully, and call or email the office with any questions.

1. Who needs paid tickets Anyone who wants to sit in the main sanctuary on Day 1 of Rosh HaShanah or Yom Kippur (including Kol Nidrei) needs a ticket.

The following services do not require tickets:

  • Alternative service on Rosh HaShanah Day 1 (afternoon) – see this flier for details
  • Rosh HaShanah Day 2 services
  • Neilah (end of Yom Kippur) and Congregational break-fast

2. How many tickets are included in my membership? Family members receive two tickets to all services, and single members receive one. Tickets are not included with associate membership.

3. How much do tickets cost? [Note – prices include attendance at all services]

Young children / grandchildren of members:

  • Under Bar/Bat Mitzvah age (13): $0
    • Please only request tickets for children who will sit in the main sanctuary during any part of the service. If they will only attend children’s / family service, they do not need tickets.
