High Holy Days Tickets
High Holy Day Bulletin Article for September/October 2016
L’Shana Tova! Welcome to 5777!
The High Holy Days will be upon us soon and we are very excited to have Rav Ahud Sela and Hazzan Daniel Friedman lead our services. As in the past, our services will be inspirational and will include Rosh Hashanah Kiddush on the TRZ School Lawn; Preschool Services; Youth Services; and babysitting (call the office for more details).
As a reminder, you will need your own copy of the Prayer book which may be purchased in the office prior to Rosh Hashanah (copies are not available at the door or at your seats). Head Coverings (required for men and ladies who go on the Bema) and Tallit’s also are not available at the door.
Children are invited to worship with the main congregation and must sit with their parents. Our Religious School Director Julia Levine will lead Youth Services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings and on Kol Nidre. This year Youth Services will end at exactly the same time as the Main Service so parents must pick up their own child in Room 7 after Main services conclude. Babysitting will require advance reservations, please contact the Preschool office prior to September 1st.
In order to enhance our security we MUST REQUIRE that each person hold their own High Holy Days ticket when entering the Synagogue at any time, even if you leave the building and wish to reenter. Adults and children must all have a ticket to be admitted. On Erev Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur Yizkor, and Yom Kippur Mincha/Ne’ila services seating will be OPEN, Members of the community are welcome to join us for these 3 services, but they must personally come into the office to receive a ticket and pay a $10 security free. Please contact the office prior to Sept 21 for these tickets. Tickets not available at the door. Security will be checking all bags.
Regular tickets for non-members are $250 for adults, $200 for seniors and children, which provides entry to all services. $10 tickets include entry to Erev Rosh Hashanah, Yiskor, Mincha, and Ne’ila. Please contact the office for tickets. Members that need extra tickets should also call the office: 818-360-1881

Handicap drop off/pick up will continue in the circle but no parking in that area is permitted at any time by anyone.
Watch for more information on our Selihot Services September 24; Tashlich,; Sukkot; Shemini Artzert; and Smhat Torah Services all in October 2016.
Finally, a huge thank you to all of the people behind the scenes who make our services run smoothly….our clergy, office staff, members of the High Holy Days committee, ushers, and our many volunteers. Each role is essential for High Holy Days at TRZ to be special…please follow their guidance and thank them when you see them.
We wish you all a happy and healthy New Year! L’shana Tova!
Lawrence Schwartz and Dorothy Russell High Holy Day Co-Chairs
As we have in the past, the Department of Transportation has granted us relaxed parking for the High Holidays. However, there is an important change this year. You will NOT be able to park on the east side of White Oak Avenue, from Devonshire to San Jose where it clearly says ‘No Parking’ (actually the sign is a ‘P’ with a red slash through it). You will still be able to park on Devonshire from Zelzah to Encino and on the west side of White Oak in front of Heschel Day School. Please make sure you do not park in the bike lane on the west side of White Oak just north of Heschel’s parking lot, as you will be ticketed.
Heschel Day School is allowing us the use of their parking lot for the holidays with the exception of the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Monday, when they are doing some work at the school involving a crane. They have advised us that the crane could possibly be gone by 10:00am, in which case they will open the parking lot for latecomers to services. The parking lot will be available to us on October 2, 4, 10 & 11.
Thank you for your cooperation.
