Dear Congregants,

While most of you are planning your summer vacations, the arrangements for the High Holy Days have been proceeding in earnest. The High Holy Days are on the following dates:

     Rosh Hashanah
          Wednesday evening - September 20, 2017
          Thursday - September 21, 2017
          Friday -September 22, 2017

     Yom Kippur
          Friday evening – September 29, 2017
          Saturday – September 30, 2017

We will have three services for the High Holy Days: in the Albert M. Shulman Auditorium, in the Lewis Family Sanctuary, and Minyan Koleinu in the Curtis Hereld Room. On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Joel Pitkowsky will conduct services in the Lewis Family Sanctuary and Rabbi Matthew Berkowitz will conduct services in the Shulman Auditorium. On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Pitkowsky will conduct services in the Shulman Auditorium and Rabbi Berkowitz will conduct services in the Lewis Family Sanctuary. Minyan Koleinu will be conducted by lay leadership: Benjamin Mann - RH Day 1; Zoe Grossman - RH Day 2; Debbi Bohnen - Kol Nidrei; Adam Wall - YK Musaf and Uri Sobel - Neilah. All services will be conducted according to the guidelines set forth by Rabbi Pitkowsky and the Ritual Committee. Whichever location you select, you are certain to find the services meaningful and dignified.

All of our services will have reserved seating. If you have any questions about Minyan Koleinu, please direct them to debbibohnen@gmail.com. All other questions about High Holy Day seats should be directed to Marian Kugelmass - makugel@aol.com.

In order to improve parking for our handicapped members, the entire parking lot and the spaces on Rugby Road will be reserved for those who have Handicapped Hang Tags or Handicapped License plates. Please indicate your need for reserved parking on the Ticket Order Form or when requesting tickets on line. Please be sure to include your license plate number.

You can help the committee by completing the forms on line by July 21, 2017. If you wish to retain the same seats as last year, your ticket request must be received no later than July 21, 2017. Please keep in mind that after that date, your seats may be assigned to others.

Please make some very important decisions when requesting your tickets:

  • Will you be using your seats for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur? If not, please indicate which days you and your family will be at services, so other families attending on the other days can use the seats (see reservation form). If you are not using your seats for certain days, please DO NOT promise the seats to other people. The Ticket Committee may use your seats to meet the needs of other congregants. With your help, we should be able to accommodate the needs of the congregation.

  • If you are requesting seating in the Lewis Family Sanctuary, please note that there is limited seating. If your request is received by July 21, 2017 and you were seated in the Lewis Family Sanctuary last year, your request will be honored. If the requests exceed the number of available seats, a waiting list will be compiled, in the order in which the reservations are received.

  • If you are requesting seating in the Curtis Hereld Room (Minyan Koleinu), please note that there is limited seating. Requests will be filled in the order that they are received. If the requests exceed the capacity of the room, a waiting list will be compiled, in the order in which the reservations are received.

  • To order tickets:

    ​​​1. You must have NO outstanding financial obligations to the synagogue. You must be either paid up, have a signed contracted plan, or have arranged for recurring electronic payments prior to the High Holy Days in order to process your ticket order form. If you do have an outstanding balance, you may pay it and order your tickets at the same time.

    2. To make it easier to pay online for HHD tickets, Yiskor book listing or an outstanding balance, the synagogue is offering to absorb all credit card processing fees for this year on a trial basis. However, please note that CBS must pay 2.9% + 30 cent transaction fee per charge. We ask that you consider continuing to cover this processing fee when using the credit card or e-check option. The optional transaction charge is a tax-deductible donation and most members pay this when using a credit card or e-check. There remains no processing fee for paying by physical check or for using your bank's online Bill Pay System. As far as we know, this option is fee for most checking accounts.

    3. Please complete the ticket request and Yiskor Book request no later than July 21, 2017.

    4. The price of a ticket is $155. If you purchase your tickets before July 21, 2017, the price is $125 per ticket.

    5. Associate members may purchase tickets at any time for $155 per ticket.

Please be sure to send your forms before July 21, 2017 and take advantage of the $125 ticket price.

If you have any questions about your ticket request or Yiskor Book form, please contact Marian Kugelmass (makugel@aol.com) or call the synagogue office.

Sincerely,

Ticket Committee 2017
