Tickets & Security

We are committed to making our services accessible to all. In past years, we offered free High Holy Day tickets. Unfortunately, many people claimed tickets but did not attend. This limited the number of seats available and wasted minyan resources. Although we would prefer not to, we find it necessary to request a minimum $18 donation in exchange for tickets. Please make your donation here, and we will send you a ticket. For security reasons, you must bring your ticket to present to the building’s security guards.

If this represents a hardship, please send us an email or speak with one of the gabbaim. We will keep your request confidential.

Location

Erev Rosh Hashana services will be hosted by Gail Labovitz & Bill Seligman (6521 Whitworth Dr.).

All other services will be held in Pilch Hall at Temple Beth Am (1039 S. La Cienega Blvd.). We recommend bringing a pillow as the chairs can be uncomfortable.

Meals

The community is invited to a potluck dinner after services on Erev Rosh Hashana. The services and dinner will be hosted by Gail Labovitz & Bill Seligman (6521 Whitworth Dr.)

If you have extra space at your holiday table or are looking for a place to dine for other meals, please let us know. We will do our best to connect you.

Break-Fast

There will be a community break-fast after Yom Kippur. Let us know if you are interested in attending. More information coming.

Childcare

Childcare is available through Beth Am. You must register in advance at Beth Am’s website.

Parking

There will not be any on-site parking. Street parking should be available, and you may park at the Beverly Hills Tennis Court on La Cienega (across from La Cienega Park). We will update this page if the normal parking restrictions are lifted.
