Yom Kippur Ticket sales have now closed.

Cost: Each ticket is a requested donation of $200 which must be paid ahead of time. This donation helps cover the costs of High Holiday programming, staffing, and supplies. Please note that Beth Shalom does not sell tickets to individual services or days for the High Holidays. Unfortunately, we cannot “divide up” a ticket for someone only looking for a single service. Requests for reduced rates are handled by the Front Office. Please call at least one week in advance.

Yom Kippur Only: Tickets for Yom Kippur only can be purchased starting October 2. These tickets are $100 each.

______________

Young adults (up to age 32): You may receive High Holiday tickets at no charge. (Donations are gratefully accepted via our Donation Page.) You must register in advance to receive tickets.

Beth Shalom Members: You will have tickets for each adult in your family mailed to you automatically; children up to age 22 do not need separate tickets. Please only use this form if you will be bringing guests and need to buy extra tickets, or if you would like to reserve young adult tickets for your children over 22 (up to age 32).

Members of Other Synagogues: Beth Shalom honors reciprocal tickets for other Conservative congregations; you don’t need to fill out this form. Out of town visitors who present a letter of good standing from their Conservative home synagogue will receive tickets at no charge. Please bring the letter to the office, or have your synagogue mail, email, or fax it to us by September  to receive your tickets on time. Reciprocity tickets will be held at Will Call, unless a local address is provided for mailing.

Non-Members (or members to be, we hope!): If you decide to join Beth Shalom within three months of the holidays, your ticket purchase price will be applied to your first year’s dues.

Our rabbis taught that one of the reasons for the destruction of the Temple was “sinat hinam,” senseless hatred amongst Jews.  Our rabbis also taught that the Messiah will be born on Tisha B’Av—suggesting that out of this destruction, there is also the potential of redemption, and reconciliation.
It is traditional on Tisha B’Av to refrain from eating, drinking, engaging in sexual relations, bathing and wearing leather shoes.  The study of religious texts is limited to those which enhance and reflect the day’s mood such as the books of Lamentations and Job and other texts referring to the destruction of Jerusalem.  Going to work, using money, driving and other  restrictions applicable to Shabbat and festivals are not applicable to Tisha B’Av.

Presented by Israeli American Council, hosted by CBS.

Since the days of King David, the Jewish people never had an artist like Naomi Shemer whose music was sung by so many and had such a vast and dramatic effect and influence on the Jewish and Israeli narrative.

Over 1,000 songs were written and composed by Shemer. Many of which tell the story of the State of Israel—from its birth through today, in happy times and sad. Her work is still very much ‘alive’ and cherished by all.  Naomi Shemer belongs to everyone, in the Jewish State and across the world.

Roy Rimshon, a self-confessed Naomi Shemer enthusiast, brings light and life to Shemer’s story. From her childhood in Kibbutz Kinneret through adolescence, from her musical education and early songs to becoming a living legend, Shemer’s life is a colorful narrative. Rimshon’s lectures combine well-known songs, videos and rare pictures, unfolding the life and work of this most influential and loved artist of the State of Israel.

Ticket prices:
Early Bird: $15 +1.78 fee (prior to May 23)
Day of: $18 +$1.93 fee (Day of)
