EARLY BIRD TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
The summer is soon upon us, so we turn our attention once again to the High Holy Days! Rabbi Goldstein and Yona Lunsky would like to welcome you again to another year of meaningful, spiritual experiences through the City Shul.
This year we have something special for families: Spirited, fun Family Services with Rabbi Emma Gottlieb, a full round of kids' activities throughout the holy days with City Shul teachers and youth workers, and childcare for the really little ones.
We are still in the same 'hood and the same comfortable, welcoming and spiritual space as last year, at Bloor Street United, 300 Bloor Street West (just east of Spadina at Huron). Our location is fully wheelchair accessible by public transit (subway to Spadina Station, walk one block east), parking available on Huron Street, Spadina, Bloor, other close-by-side-streets, and a small lot behind the church.
We invite you now to take part in advance "Early Bird" High Holy Day registration. The deadline for early bird registration is Friday July 29th at 5 PM.
We will not be mailing out tickets except for Kol Nidre pledge cards which function as your entrance ticket. All other High Holiday tickets are generated online on our Eventbrite site and emailed to you. You will need to print your tickets at home and bring with you to services. If you do not have access to a computer or email, please call us.
Online registration, or this registration form, including full payment MUST BE RECEIVED by 5 pm on Friday July 29th to qualify for this price. Our office will close for Shabbat at 5 PM on July 29th and reopen on Tuesday August 2nd with new higher prices. We do not issue tickets without full payment.
Prayerbooks: Each participant brings their own prayerbook; our services do not have any extra or loaner prayerbooks. We use the same prayerbook each year so once you obtain it you can use it again: Gates of Repentence (CCAR Press). To have a participatory, communal experience we ask that each person have a copy of that prayerbook so that no one feels like an outsider or a "spectator." We can provide a gently used prayerbook for you at a cost of $20 including tax which you order at the same time as your tickets. Please note that we do not sell or lend prayerbooks at the service. We often sell out, please order early!
To order tickets and/ or prayerbooks, you have four options:
1. Order online here.
2. Scan the form with credit card info and email.
3. Send the form on the back in with your donation in full, either cheque or credit card, to City Shul High Holidays, 360 Bloor Street West, P.O. Box 19044 Walmer, Toronto, ON, M5S 3C9.
4. Fax the form to 416 613-1329
We look forward to seeing you during the High Holy days and wish you and your family a happy, healthy and safe summer. Feel free to offer this early-bird discount to family and friends.
