Mishkan Tefila Community Members: High Holy Day seats are included in your annual pledge. However, this year, everyone has front row seats from your home. We are excited for our dynamic services and we are grateful for the technology that enables us to remain connected wherever we are. If you are able, we would be grateful if you would symbolically purchase “seats” this year for all your extended family and friends. This will enable us to continue to provide this technology.

Mishkan Tefila Guests: 
We would love you to be a part of our amazing High Holy Day services. This unusual year has allowed us to welcome everyone, no matter where in the world you are, to our dynamic, spiritual and music filled High Holy Day experience. In order to make it technologically possible for us to provide these services, please buy a virtual ticket if you are able to.
