For Members with seating in the Main Sanctuary

If you have tickets to Main Sanctuary services and will not be attending all or some of the High Holy Days services at Central, we ask that you consider releasing your seats so that we can better accommodate other members and their guests.

If you have tickets to Main Sanctuary services but prefer to worship at one of our other locations this year, please alert us by August 30 so that we can issue you new tickets.

Guest Tickets

Central Synagogue is blessed to have an engaged membership, and our High Holy Days attendance has been steadily increasing each year. In recent years, our Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur morning services have been more than 90% full. To accommodate as many worshippers as possible, we hope you’ll help us uphold the following policies:

  • Guest tickets must be ordered by Friday, August 30. After this deadline, we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to accommodate your request. Please use the personalized link that was emailed to you or contact Membership.
  • A Two (2) guest ticket limit per household. Exceptions may be granted only for the parents, children, or siblings of a member, depending on space availability.
  • If your guests are members in good standing at another synagogue, they can attend services with you via reciprocity. Please have them complete the URJ reciprocity request form, which will submit a request to their synagogue asking them confirm their membership. The form must indicate which services they plan to attend and the name of the Central member they will be joining.

Please Note: Your guests will only be able to attend the services and locations for which your member tickets have been issued.

Non-Member Community Tickets

We are pleased to announce we are holding our Community Service for the greater Jewish community in Beir Chapel, located in our Community House.

Non-member High Holy Day Community Service tickets are now available for purchase here. You can view the full schedule of HHD Community Services here. If you have any questions about these services please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call 212-838-5122 x2000.

If you are a member in good standing of another congregation, you can receive courtesy tickets to our Community Services through “reciprocity.” Please complete the URJ reciprocity request form, which will submit a request to your synagogue asking them confirm your membership. To help us manage our capacity, please indicate specifically which of our services you’d like to attend.

If you’re a relative of a Central member and wish to attend services with them, your synagogue must list their name on the reciprocity form so that we can issue you the correct tickets.

For Central Members: Request tickets to another Congregation

Synagogues typically extend each other the courtesy of offering complimentary tickets to members of other congregations who are away from home for the High Holy Days and wish to worship at a different congregation.

Central members in good standing can submit a request to attend another congregation by filling out the URJ’s Reciprocity Request Form. Central will forward your request to the destination congregation.

Please note: Each congregation participates in reciprocity at their discretion, and we can’t guarantee that tickets will be available. Typically, you’re only able to request as many reciprocal tickets as you would receive with your Central membership. Please contact your destination congregation for questions about their policy.
