High Holidays 5782

Dear Members,

The Yamim Noraim have always been a special time in our shul and we have continuously tried to make our davening and comfort equally as special. Even last year, in what was without a doubt our most unique and taxing year, we were so proud to have provided wonderful accommodations for over 1,200 people to daven together despite the challenging times.

This year, while perhaps not yet back to our pre-pandemic seating, we are very happy to once again open all of our minyanim for the Yamim Noraim. While our hope would be to accommodate every member’s seating request, reservations received after July 1st will run a higher risk of preferences not being fulfilled. We also remind you that reservation forms with a greater number of seats than prior years will have a higher likelihood of being moved within the sanctuary, being split within the sanctuary, and/or fulfilled in a different location.

We ask that you please read this document thoroughly before submitting your High Holiday Reservation Form. Of course, should you have any questions please contact Elysia Stein at

Minyan Locations:

We are happy to once again offer the following High Holiday Minyanim:

  • New Main Shul
  • Old Main Shul
  • Beis Medrash (Nusach Sefard)
  • Social Hall
  • Sephardic Minyan

In addition, this year we will be offering reservations for a minyan in the CBY Tent.

Reservations are once again being processed exclusively via an online form through the CBY website (below). Immediate online payment (via credit card, ACH check, or Paypal) will be required to submit the form. If this poses a difficulty for you, please contact Elysia Stein to make specialized arrangements in advance.

As you fill out your reservations, please keep in mind the following:

  • While we continue to welcome guests, we intend to prioritize the location preferences of our members, and those who reside full time in their homes.
  • At the time of publication of this letter our policy requires anyone who is not fully vaccinated to mask while indoors at Bnai Yeshurun.
  • Seats may be reserved for children age 9 and above. Please see masking policy above.
  • At this time we do not plan to offer regular babysitting/groups for children this year. However, the Youth Department is investigating some creative offerings for the Yamim Noraim and we will share more details as we approach Yom Tov.

Reservations will be accepted provided that:


Members who require financial assistance to cover the cost of seats or to satisfy their obligations with the shul are urged to contact Elysia Stein in the office as soon as possible. As always, we will make every effort to accommodate the needs of our members in full confidentiality. Please bear in mind that financial arrangements are made on the basis of the shul’s fiscal year, which begins on June 1st and that such arrangements must be renewed annually.

Deadlines, Pricing, & Refunds:

  • Full Members and their immediate families through Thursday, August 5th: $175
  • Full Members and their immediate families after Thursday, August 5th: $225
  • Affiliate Members and non-members, accepted only beginning Monday, August 9th: $300
  • Seats for Yom Kippur only, accepted ONLY after Rosh Hashanah, and only based on availability: $115

Please understand that no exceptions will be made to these deadlines. Additionally, our refund policy is as follows:

  • Cancellations made before August 9th, for circumstances beyond your control, will receive a 50% refund.
  • No refunds will be issued for cancellations after August 9th.

Please do not pressure the Shul office or Seating Committee to make any exceptions to this policy.


We urge you to complete your online reservation form as soon as possible so that we can best accommodate our members’ needs.

We remind all members that our tefilot will be heard from every location and that all our minyanim will be conducted in a manner that befits the holiness and dignity of the Yamim Noraim.

Thank you,
