We wish to give everyone the opportunity to celebrate the High Holy Days with our congregation. If you have not worshiped with us in the past, I am sure you will find our Holy Day services to be warm, welcoming and spiritually fulfilling. In order to ensure our ability to seat all those who wish to join us for the Holy Days, we require that non-members purchase "passes." In order to purchase a pass, please download, fill-out and mail us this form. The fee for an adult pass is $300 and includes seating at services where passes are required. There is a $500 fee for a family of two adults and dependent children over six years of age to attend those services. Children under six years old may be in childcare (childcare registration form here). If you will only be attending services on one of the Holy Days, the cost is one-half the amount stated. If the fee for the pass is a financial hardship for you, please contact Rabbi Kadden at (253) 564-7101. No one will be turned away because of need.
High Holy Day passes are included with Temple Beth El membership. If you purchase passes and decide within 30 days of Yom Kippur to join our congregational family, the cost of your passes will be applied toward your dues.
Passes are required for the following services. They will be checked at the door.
Erev Rosh HaShanah on Wednesday, Sunday, September 16 at 8:00 p.m.
First Day of Rosh HaShanah on Sunday, September 17 at 10:00 a.m.
Kol Nidrei on Tuesday, September 25 at 8:00 p.m.
Yom Kippur on Wednesday, September 26 at 10:00 a.m.
We offer community services that do not require passes. For security purposes, however, we need you to make either a telephone reservation by calling (253) 564-7101 or an e-mail reservation to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Friday, September 14 for Rosh HaShanah and by Monday, September 24 for Yom Kippur.
