Complimentary Tickets for High Holidays for Newcomers, Graduate Students and Full Time Medical Residents, and Special Dues for Those Under 35
Individuals and families who have moved to Washtenaw County since last Yom Kippur, may request High Holiday tickets at no charge as Beth Israel’s way of welcoming them into the local Jewish community. Graduate students and full time Medical Residents with I.D.s may also request free individual tickets. Request forms for Rosh Hashanah must be submitted by 3 p.m. on Sept. 30, and by October 10 for Yom Kippur, and no tickets can be provided immediately prior to any service.
People who are 35 years old or younger may become members at a special rate of $300 for the whole family for their first year of membership (plus USCJ dues assessment of $37.25).
Tickets for the High Holidays are provided free of charge to all members of Beth Israel in good standing. Non-members may purchase tickets for the High Holiday Services, although no tickets are required for the Erev Rosh Hashanah Family Celebration for Young Children. Those interested in further information are asked to call the synagogue office at 665-9897.
