Do I need a ticket for the High Holy Days?
Tickets are needed for four High Holy Days services: Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah Morning Service, Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur Morning Service. Tickets will be sent to all members in good standing. Members in good standing are: those who have paid in full (1) the previous fiscal year’s (’22-’23) membership dues, building fund & security fee, and (2) the first quarter of this fiscal year’s (’23-’24) membership dues, building fund & security fee.
Tickets are not needed for other in-person Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. A ticket is also not needed if you are watching the streamed service.
How do I access streamed services?
Services can be streamed on the HCRJ website here. We will also email this streaming page link to the congregation the week prior to the holidays.
Do I have to watch services live if I am streaming?
No, you do not have to watch services live. All services will be archived and can be watched after the fact.
