High Holidays 5783

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 over the past two years, in what were without a doubt our most unique and taxing years, we were so proud to have provided wonderful accommodations for over 1,500 people to daven together despite the challenging and ever-changing times.

The online reservation form below will open Tuesday, July 5th at 8:00 am. This year 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 Wednesday, July 20th 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 office@bnaiyeshurun.org.

Please note the following details and instructions:
 
Minyan Locations:
•    New Main Shul
•    Old Main Shul
•    Beis Medrash (Nusach Sefard)
•    Social Hall
•    Sephardic Minyan
•    Tent on CBY Campus - 
Pricing for seats in the tent will be offered at a reduction to indoor locations.

Reservations:
As in the past few years, reservations will be processed exclusively via an online form through the CBY website, which will open on Tuesday, July 5th at 8:00 am. Immediate online payment (via credit card, e-check, or Paypal) will be required to submit the form. If this poses a difficulty for you, please contact Elysia Stein in advance of completing your reservation form to make specialized arrangements.

As you fill out your reservations, please keep in mind the following:
•  In recognition that the past two years brought many changes and anomalies to our seating arrangements, pre-Covid High Holiday 2019 seating will be used as precedent.
•   While we continue to welcome guests, we intend to prioritize the location preferences of our members, and those who reside with them.
•   Seats may be reserved for children age 9 and above. 
•   We are pleased to announce we are planning to offer High Holiday babysitting/groups for children (Pre-K through 4th grade).

As always, we will make every effort to accommodate the needs of our members in full confidentiality.
