HONORS

Each year the high holy days give members of the congregation the opportunity to ask for a Torah honor. If you would like an aliyah on Rosh Hashanah (Monday, September 10th) or on Yom Kippur (Wednesday, September 19th), please be in touch with Faith (464-2632) or Susan (722-9200). To volunteer, for instructions, or for more information, call Faith or Susan as soon as possible. Descriptions of the honors, including the guidelines and blessings for an aliyah. are readily available online (Google has all the information!), or we can e-mail information to you.

SEATING

Membership in BAJC entitles you to a seat at high holy days services. If guests (family members or friends) are joining you, we ask a donation of $108 (6 chai) from each guest for each holiday, as well as from non-members wishing to attend the services. We don’t turn anyone away from services or require reservations, but we do hope guests will help us to cover the expenses of making the services available to all. Donations for seats should be mailed to BAJC in advance if possible.
