Following is detailed information regarding attendance at and access to CEEBJ’s High Holy Days services—in person or online.  We welcome you and your guests to join us in-person and online. 


In Person Attendance:

Name Tags/Tickets: To help everyone connect or reconnect at this joyous and sacred time, and to better support our security efforts, we’ve enclosed name tag cards for your household. We will also make them available for your guests. We ask that you bring your name tags to all in-person Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. These will serve as your High Holy Day tickets, and we will ask you to show them to our greeters as you enter our building.

We will have name tag holders and lanyards to help you display your name tags available for pickup right before High Holy Day services, and during the week prior at the office.

* Masking is optional at High Holy Day services and for all other activities at CEEBJ.

* Reservations are required for Children’s High Holy Day Experiences, Childcare, and Transportation. Click here to make your reservations, or by returning the reservation form in the information packet mailed to your home, or by calling the synagogue office at 414-228-7545. We also ask for all guests to be pre-registered so we can welcome them properly.

* Guests and Adult Children: While there will be no specific cost for your adult children and/or guests to attend, we ask you please click here to register them in advance, and please encourage them to consider making a donation to the CEEBJ High Holy Days Appeal to support our operations.
