High Holidays 5779

The clergy, staff and Board of Trustees at Temple Beth Am are hard at work to ensure that your worship experience here will be meaningful, and that you will feel comfortable and welcome in our synagogue facility during the Holidays and all year long.

*NEW THIS YEAR!*
Our High Holiday tickets are "general admission" for any service. Given limited space during construction, extra tickets are available to members only. Cost is $300 per ticket. We will do our best to make accommodations for those with special circumstances and may require reserved seating - reach out to our Executive Director, Sheryl Goldman.

Tickets for the full High Holiday experience are for TBA members only.
