Central Synagogue will be holding services in person for our members in 2022. As always, our services will be livestreamed and available to the public—there will be no registration, payment, or password required to access our virtual worship services on our website, Facebook, or Cable TV.
Tickets will be sent by e-mail on Monday, September 12, 2022 to members in good standing. “Good standing” means that you’re current on all membership dues, fees, and tuition from the 2021-22 membership year, or have made payment arrangements with our Finance or Membership departments and are current on those arrangements.
Members without an email address on file will receive printed tickets in the mail.
Please contact us if you're not sure how many tickets your household receives. Note: children under the age of 3 do not need tickets; children 26 and older need guest tickets (or their own membership).
Guest Tickets for Central members
To order guest tickets, please check your email for your personalized guest ticket order form.
To accommodate as many worshippers as possible, we hope you’ll help us uphold the following policies:
- Guest tickets must be ordered by Thursday, September 1, 2022. After this deadline, we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to accommodate your request.
- 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 the Union for Reform Judaism’s (URJ) reciprocity arrangement. Their synagogue should complete and send the URJ's reciprocity form to us on your guests' behalf, by email to [email protected] for fastest response time, or by fax to (646) 585-0040. 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 Service Tickets
Tickets to our Community Service in Beir Chapel will be made available to limited groups in Central’s extended community.
- Current students of Central’s Center for Exploring Judaism
- Central’s membership waitlist
- Central’s 20s-30s group
If you’re in one of the above groups and didn’t receive an email invitation to purchase tickets, please contact [email protected]. Remaining tickets will be available to the general public.
If you’re a member in good standing of another congregation, you can get courtesy tickets to our Community Services through the Union for Reform Judaism’s (URJ) reciprocity arrangement. Please request reciprocity directly from your synagogue using the URJ's reciprocity form, or have your synagogue email a reciprocity form to us at [email protected]. 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.
We encourage you to visit the UJA Federation of New York’s website which maintains a list of services at other NYC-area synagogues that may be available.
