Members

We are happy to share that this year’s High Holy Day services will be both in-person and streamed. All evening and daytime services will be at the Paramount Theatre. On Rosh HaShanah afternoon, Tashlich and children’s programming will be held at Emeryville Marina Park.

If you have already renewed your membership, High Holy Day Passes will be sent for each adult member of your household. Passes are not required for dependent children, but registration is necessary for childcare and/or children’s programming.

New this year, your High Holy Days passes are also name tags. Once you arrive at the theater, show the greeter your name tag and be sure to pick up a lanyard and holder so that all people can greet you by name.

Yom Kippur morning, afternoon, and evening services will all be live streamed.

If you would like to borrow machzorim for the virtual High Holy Day services, you may pick them up at Temple on Monday, September 12 or Tuesday, September 13, between 5:15pm – 6:30pm.

Non-Members

The High Holy Days are a time for reflection, re-connection, and prayer. We are delighted that you are considering joining us for the upcoming High Holy Days. In addition to celebrating and observing these special holidays, people often use these services as a way to get acquainted with our congregation and community. 

 

We offer many ways to enjoy the beauty of the High Holy Days with a wide variety of services and musical styles and non-member participation in our services is always welcome.

Our members, who support our Temple year-round, absorb the overwhelming costs of our High Holy Day services. To help defray some of the costs, we ask non-members who can contribute to do so. 

In the past years we have asked for a suggested donation of $250 per person.

We know that this is another exceptional year and we do not want finances to stand in the way of anyone joining us for services or from participating in our community. Please make a donation that is meaningful to you. The cost of a non-member ticket can later be applied toward Temple Sinai membership if you decide to join before the end of the calendar year.

Contributions for High Holy Day tickets are fully tax-deductible.

Parking and Accessibility at the Paramount Theatre

​Please let the temple know if you will be coming to the Paramount Theatre in a wheelchair so we can assist you with any necessary arrangements. The Paramount Theatre Box Office staff is available to assist you in acquiring seating that best meets your individual needs. There are wheelchair-accessible locations, as well as transfer seats with movable armrests for those who would like to transfer out of their wheelchair located in the Orchestra Front and Orchestra Rear sections on the main floor. The Paramount Theatre does not provide wheelchairs. Please note, there is no elevator in the Paramount Theatre.
