The High Holy Days are approaching. To ensure that our High Holy Day services will be observed with dignity, decorum and in comfort, please adhere to the following procedures.
Admission to all High Holy Day services, with the exception of our Public Yizkor service, is by ticket only. For safety and security reasons the front doors only are to be used for entrance and egress to the synagogue. NHC will have security for the holidays.
We ask that everyone have your tickets available along with identification, when entering. Please ask your guests to also have their tickets and identification available for security checking when entering the synagogue. No one will be admitted without a ticket and identification. If you have misplaced your ticket or do not have identification you will be asked to step aside until a board officer of NHC can come to the door.
Congregant Household Membership Includes one ticket for each husband and wife or committed adult in the immediate household. Tickets are not required for children under 18.
Young Adult Affiliation Ticket will be mailed upon completion of membership form.
Guest Tickets Tickets purchased for family members cost $125.00 per ticket. Guest tickets for all others in the community are available at $250.00 per ticket.
Congregants who are in compliance with our financial policy by September 3, 2019 will be mailed their tickets the week of September 9. All others may pick up their tickets and guest tickets or meet with the finance committee at the NHC office. You may also call the office to speak with a member of the finance committee.
For ticket pick-up, please enter ONLY at the lower level office entrance and not at the main entrance to the building. The finance committee will be available at NHC on these dates:
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 9:30 am – 1:00 pm
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 5:00 – 7:30 pm
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 9:30 am – NOON
Reserved seats will be available on a first come first served basis, at a cost of $125.00 per seat to members and $125.00 for their guests in addition to the cost covering the cost of a standard guest ticket. It is important to note that the purpose of selling reserved seats is solely that of a fundraiser.
Please note that any personal items left on seats which have not been reserved, will be placed in the book room at the conclusion of services. The Nanuet Hebrew Center will not be responsible for any lost or missing items.
To minimize any disturbance to those in prayer, please take your seat only when the ushers indicate it is permissible. No one may “hold” unoccupied seats; this practice is unfair to other congregants. Exceptions are limited to “working congregants”, e.g. ushers, individuals performing Bimah duties or honors.
To enhance the enjoyment of the holiday services and to provide an opportunity for personal participation of our younger children, we will have youth services.
Youth Services will take place on the first and second days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur for all children in grades kindergarten – 6 from 11:00 am –12:30 pm. All services for children in kindergarten – 6th grades will take place on the lower level. Please enter through the upstairs doors. Downstairs doors will be locked.
Baby-sitting services will be available for children up to 6 years old on the first and second days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Baby-sitting will take place from 10:00 am through the end of adult services in the Youth Lounge located on the lower level. Children may not enter or leave without an appropriate guardian.
Parking will be allowed in our parking area in designated spaces only. There is a commuter parking lot a very short distance south of the synagogue.
There will be NO parking on local streets posted with No Parking Signs.
