High Holiday Seating Information For Associate Members

The Parallel Service, held in the Levy Auditorium, is led by Associate Hazzan, Rev. Philip L. Sherman.  At the conclusion of services on the first day of Rosh Hashana, Parallel Serivce ticket holders will join their fellow congregants in the Main Sanctuary for Rabbi Soloveichik's sermon.   Throughout the second day of Rosh Hashanah and on Kippur day (until Neilah), Parallel Service ticket holders attend services in the Main Sanctuary.


Individual Associate Memberships include one seat in the Parallel Service. Family Associate Memberships include two seats, one in the men’s section and one in the women’s section. Associate Members may purchase additional seats for Parallel Services at $180 per person for one or all days.  Click here to purchase additional Parallel Service tickets.


If you wish to attend all of the services in the Main Sanctuary with an assigned seat, please upgrade to Full Membership, otherwise you may request Main Sanctuary seats for $400 per person. We do our best to fulfill these requests, however availability in the Main Sanctuary is limited. To request seats in the Main Sanctuary click here. Main Sanctuary ticket holders are welcome to join the Parallel Service any time.


Tickets will be sent this year by email (except to those congregants who do not have email who will receive them by USPS). You will need to print them at home and bring them to each service (through and including Neilah).  Please do not bring smartphones or present digital tickets; paper only please.


Children’s programming is available on the both mornings of Rosh Hashanah and throughout Kippur (Kal Nidre, Kippur morning and Neilah) and is open to all participants.


If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Gross at 212-873-0300, x 230.


To ensure everyone’s security, no one can be admitted to the building on Rosh Hashanah and Kippur without a printed paper ticket.
