High Holiday Primer 5782/2021

We look forward to worshiping together in person for the High Holidays this year. Our goal is to maintain the beautiful traditions of the Days of Awe, though there will be some changes necessary due to health concerns. In the next week, you will receive via email complete holiday information, including our High Holiday 5782/2021 Guide, program details, and ticket request link. Below is logistical information to help you plan.

Seating Sections: Throughout the Holiday period, Open Seating sections with no spacing in the sanctuary pews will be available for those who are fully vaccinated, and Pod Seating sections (three feet apart) in the Social Hall for those who are unvaccinated or with health concerns. Masks are required of all attendees at all services indoors.

Member Request Period for Tickets: Members can request tickets online during an early registration period to ensure they receive tickets first. You are asked to request tickets only for members of your household and anticipated guests. We will strive to honor all member requests, but due to Covid protocols and limited space, seating is limited so we cannot guarantee availability. Tickets will be mailed to your home or confirmed via email to be held for pick-up at the Welcome Table in our atrium. The member-only request period will begin on August 10th, and for Rosh Hashanah it will remain open for members through August 20th. Requests received after August 20th will be available for members and the General Public.

General Public Purchase Period: The general public can purchase tickets if available during an Open Ticket Purchase Period. We will do our best to accommodate all requests depending on seating availability. The General Public Purchase Period for Rosh Hashanah will extend from August 21st- August 30th.

General Public Ticket Pricing (as available): 

  • Non-Members: $200 per seat
  • There is no charge for children under 18, college students and military personnel.

Assigned Seating: Due to Covid seating limitations, there are no reserved seats as in past years. However, to ensure orderly seating, attendees will be assigned seats. Ushers will assist guests in finding their seats throughout the services. We ask that members do not call the office to request specific seating assignments.

Tickets Required to Enter: For the safety of our community, tickets must be presented to the security guards or greeters to enter the building at all Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. 

Livestreaming of Services: We will continue the livestreaming of services this holiday season for those who for health reasons are unable to attend. Visit www.emanu-el.com/streaming or https://venue.streamspot.com/ffff8730 if you plan to view online.

Children: Outdoor holiday programming for youth will be available at designated times during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Children under 18 years old who will be attending services in the sanctuary must be signed up for a ticket. This will allow for us to plan seating adequately. All children under 12 years old attending services must sit in the Pod Seating area. There will be no baby-sitting this year due to Covid-protocols.
