Below is the information we anticipate you will need to experience the High Holy Day season with ease, joy, and meaning.

Due to the popularity of the nametags in the past years, we are using them again this year. Nametags will be required for entrance to all services. A few notes:

  • When you attend your first service you will be given a plastic holder for the nametag at the Summit Avenue entrance. Please return this holder after the last service you attend.
  • We request that everyone, 7 years and older, keep the nametag on while in the building.
  • Please remember to bring the nametag(s) with you for every service during the High Holy Days.
  • For information about accessibility, click here.

If you need additional nametags for guests or dependents over age 26, there is a suggested donation of $54 per person, and you can request these online. Please let us know if you have any questions about this.
