High Holidays 2021 -5782

We are pleased to announce that Shaare Tefillah, under the leadership of Rabbi Kenneth Schiowitz, will hold services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in our shul located at 510 Claremont Avenue. 

We are extremely grateful to be in a place where a traditional High Holiday experience, without Covid restrictions, seems to be safe and possible.

The minyan schedule will be as follows: 
a) Main Sanctuary – 8:30 a.m. on Rosh Hashanah. We expect the Rosh Hashanah davening to end at approximately 12:45 p.m., similar to past years. On Yom Kippur, davening will start at 8:45 a.m.
b) Social Hall – 8:30 a.m. on Rosh Hashanah. We expect the Rosh Hashanah davening to be at a faster pace than in the Main Sanctuary and end at approximately 12:00 p.m. On Yom Kippur, davening will start at 8:45 a.m. 
c) Hashkama minyan in the Beit Midrash – 7:45 a.m. on both Rosh Hashana and on Yom Kippur. Please note that if we cannot fill the Beit Midrash to near capacity, and the other minyanim are full, we will move this minyan to 8:30 a.m to accommodate the needs of our Kehilla.
 
We are currently working on plan to offer childcare during davening over the Yamim Noraim. We will have use of the tents outside and possibly some classrooms, depending on the Covid situation. We will follow up with more specific plans and costs as we get closer to Yom Tov.  
 
We will continue to require unvaccinated individuals to wear masks and vaccinated individuals will not be required to wear masks. 

We will once again be instituting a staggered ordering system based on membership status for the purchase of seats. 

  • Full Members will be able to purchase seats beginning on July 4, 2021
  • Associate Members will be able to purchase seats beginning on July 19, 2021
  • Non-Members will be able to purchase remaining seats beginning on August 1, 2021


For all seats purchased before August 5, 2021, the following discounted prices will apply.
FULL MEMBERS: $180.00 PER SEAT, if purchased by August 5
ASSOCIATE MEMBERS: $250.00 PER SEAT, if purchased by August 5
NON-MEMBERS: $280.00 PER SEAT


All seats will be priced at the Non-Membership rate of $280.00 per seat for all reservations received after August 5, regardless of membership status. 

Full Members may purchase seats for their immediate family, at the Full Member rate of $180.00 per seat for all reservations received prior to August 5.  

Though with the opening of the Social Hall for davening we anticipate having more seats available than in previous years, we still have a limited number of seats and want to ensure we can fulfill the needs of the entire Kehillah. We kindly ask that you reserve seats only for those who will need them.

Reservation and Payment Process
Payment for seats can be made with a credit card through our website or by dropping off a check in the shul mailbox. All reservations must be paid in full in order to reserve seats. For those members who opt to pay by check, your reservation is not considered complete until payment has been received. Payments should be received by the shul no later than August 20, 2021.

Both Full and Associate Members purchasing seats must fulfill their past dues obligations from the current or previous years, and Full Members must be current with their Building Fund obligation. If you are not current, you must make financial arrangements to do so with our Treasurer, Hillel Olivestone.

Assistance and Special Requests
If you have a specific seating request, please note it where indicated on the online reservation form. We will do our best to fulfill all requests on a first-come, first-served basis.
