High Holy Day Services and Seating Information

Please see the complete High Holy Day Services Schedule and Information 2016  Please pay your dues in full by August 31st or arrange a payment plan  in order to receive the same seats that you had in the past. After that date, seats will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis. To reserve additional seats for visiting family members or out-of-town guests, please contact the office so we can try to sit your family together.

Seats for Members and Out-of-Town Guests

Adult members receive one seat for an individual membership and two seats for a family membership. Member’s children who are under the age of 18 or full-time college students receive complimentary seats with their families.

Parents, adult children, siblings and visiting out-of-town guests of members who themselves are members in good standing at another synagogue receive complimentary seats, but we would appreciate a donation of $50 per adult.  Out-of-town relatives and guests who are not members of other synagogues may reserve seats for $100 each. Guests’ children under the age of 18 or full-time college students receive complimentary seats with their families.

Seats for Non-Members

Non-members who reside in the area and wish to attend services on the High Holy Days are welcome to do so at no charge.

A contribution is requested (we suggest $200 per person attending on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but any amount is welcome).  If you join Temple Beth Israel before December 31, you may apply this amount toward your first year of Temple membership.

Courtesy and Consideration

  • If offered an honor during the service, please take your place on the bimah at the appropriate time so services flow smoothly.
  • Upon entering the sanctuary, if the sanctuary doors are closed, please wait s until the ushers welcome you to take your seats.
  • Please refrain from wearing strong colognes, perfumes, or other scents to be considerate of those with fragrance sensitivities.
