No tickets or reservations are required for admission. However there are certain requirements for entrance that we ask you to follow for security considerations, and to follow them as requested.
Everyone who attends these services must register. To register, please bring with you a sheet of paper with the following information. Please type or print clearly. The sheet should include your name, address, city, state, zip code, day and evening telephone number, your email (please print your email address very clearly), your profession or occupation and your business name, address and phone number. The registration sheet is good for you and one other adult who is a spouse or partner and who lives in your home. It is also good for children under 18. We strongly encourage you to bring this with you so as to facilitate a smooth and swift entrance.
If other adults come with you, they must register separately. If you don't bring this information with you, clearly printed, you will have to go to the Registration Table where someone to help you with the registration. Either way, once your registration is complete, you will be given an admission ticket that allows you to enter the service.
We ask that you dress appropriately in order to maintain the dignity of these services. Gentlemen, ties and jacket; Ladies, skirt or dressy pant suit. Please do not attend in jeans or inappropriate clothing.
We encourage you to bring a talit (prayer shawl) with you. This is not a requirement, but something you can do. In our congregation men and women wear a talit (though again, this is optional for either gender). You can obtain a wide variety in different styles, sizes and colors at West Side Judaica (ask for Shloimy) on Broadway between 88th and 89th Streets in Manhattan, 212-362-7846.
Due to security considerations, we ask that you do not bring backpacks, bags or briefcases with you.
We do not have childcare and do not, as yet, have children's services. Hence, if you have a child above six or seven that can sit quietly they may attend. However, children who cry out or can't sit still (and Mom and Dad have trouble with them in this setting) are disruptive to the worshippers and to our concentration. We must request that you respect the dignity of the occasion and not bring children under six or seven with you. We are not looking to be mean or unfriendly and we love kids, but in the past, this has proven to be very disturbing and we ask you to abide by this.
