HIGH HOLIDAYS 2019

Summer is here and we are thinking of you as part of the wonderful High Holidays community we all create, and want to give you the opportunity to purchase tickets now at the early-bird price! We hope that you plan to join us again this year for services, featuring our unique traditional yet progressive and egalitarian service with Rabbi Elyse Goldstein and Yona Lunsky; “break-out” activities; interactive family programming and family services throughout the holidays. Childcare will be available for children. All children have supervision and age appropriate activities, and are also welcome in the main service.

This year we are “going green”, and will not be producing paper tickets, except for Kol Nidre tickets which will be mailed to you via Canada Post. KN tickets will not be issued for children under 25. We will have a master list with the names of all ticket holders, and you can “check in” at the door. Just a reminder that for security reasons, every participant, of any age, must have a ticket.

Tickets and prayerbooks can be purchased here.

Looking forward to seeing you at the High Holiday services!
