Days of Awe/High Holy Days 5778 (2017) Guest Information and Donation

Bet Am Shalom warmly welcomes your family and friends and is open to the community for participation in our services during the Days of Awe.  

We appreciate your cooperation in complying with our guest policy. A guest is anyone who is not a part of a membership household.  A membership household consists of the adult(s) of the household and their children while they maintain student status.  

So we can plan appropriately, please let us know in advance of any guests who will be attending in either of two categories:

  1. Non-members (excluding seniors and college students)We request a donation for each guest of $360/person for all Days of Awe Services, or $180/person for Rosh Hashanah Day 1 & 2 and $180/person for both Kol Nidre & Yom Kippur, if you are able, to help us sustain our “open tent.” If you decide to become a member of Bet Am Shalom during this membership year, the monies you send for High Holy Day attendance will be applied toward your membership dues. Please submit donation below or click here for mail-in form.
  2. Seniors on a limited, fixed income and students attending local colleges:  We welcome you as guests of the congregation without any expectation of a donation, but you must register. Seniors and non-member college students click here to register without donating.
