HOW DO I REQUEST TICKETS?

Fill out a ticket request form. There is a different form for Members and Non-Members; for each form there is an online version which you can complete and submit online and a paper version that you can download and submit via email to shul@asbi.org, fax to 773-248-5001, or mail or drop off at the shul.

Every ASBI Member is entitled to one ticket per immediate family member living at home. High Holiday tickets are not included with an associate membership. Please note that you must be in good standing to request tickets. Due to the high volume of ticket requests, you cannot call the office to make a request over the phone—you must submit a paper or online form to make a ticket request.

Please be sure to fill out your request form with the proper number of tickets and a name for EACH person for whom you are requesting tickets.

 

WHAT DOES "IN GOOD STANDING" MEAN?

BEFORE you make a ticket request, you must be in good standing. This means that at least half of your membership dues have been paid or you have initiated a payment plan and you have no previous outstanding balances. If you need to request an adjusted dues amount, please fill out a Dues Adjustment Form and make at least a partial payment so that you can be in good standing. You can view your current account balance and open invoices by logging into your asbi.org account.

 

WHAT IS OPEN SEATING?

Open seating means that you are given a ticket for entry but are not assigned a specific seat and may sit in any available seat during services. Even if you do not want an assigned seat, you still need to request an open seating ticket to be sent a ticket for the High Holidays.

 

HOW DOES ASSIGNED SEATING WORK?

Assigned seating is available for ASBI Members and their guests only. Please fill out the form letting us know the specific seat you would like to sit in, general preferences for your seat, or who you would like to be seated with. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL GET THE SEAT YOU REQUEST. We will do the best we can to accommodate your request and seat you as close as possible to your desired seat. Assigned seating requests cannot be accepted after 10:00 AM on Friday, August 17. Scroll down to view a seating chart of the main sanctuary.

Please note that demand for seats in the women's section is very high. We ask that you consider enrolling small children in programming or babysitting instead of requesting a seat for them, or requesting seats for your child(ren) with a parent in the men's section, if possible. Register your child(ren) for babysitting and/or programming at  asbi.org/camp-shana-tova.

 

CAN I ASK TO SIT NEXT TO ANOTHER MEMBER/FAMILY?

Yes. If you want to sit near another member/family, please state the names of those you would like to sit with in the "Seat Request" box AND state your seating preference. Please DO NOT submit separate forms with adjacent seat numbers without specifying that you would like to sit together, as we cannot guarantee anyone will be assigned the seats they request. Be sure to speak to one another to ensure that you have both submitted assigned seating request forms, listing your preference to be seated next to one another.

 

I WANT TO SIT IN THE SAME SEAT AS LAST YEAR

You can email shul@asbi.org to find out what your seats were the previous year. Seats are assigned new each year and we cannot guarantee you will be assigned the seat you had in previous years.

 

ARE THERE OPTIONS FOR KIDS?

Yes, we are again offering Camp Shana Tova programming and babysitting for kids this year. All babysitting and High Holiday programming for children is by-reservation-only. Register your child(ren) for babysitting and/or programming at  asbi.org/camp-shana-tova.

Please note that demand for seats in the women's section is very high. We ask that you consider enrolling small children in programming or babysitting instead of requesting a seat for them, or requesting seats for your child(ren) with a parent in the men's section, if possible.

 

GUEST TICKETS FOR MEMBERS

Members are entitled to purchase tickets for guests at a reduced rate. The cost per guest is $220. The cost per student guest is $72. If your guest is attending for only Rosh Hashanah or only Yom Kippur, tickets are half-priced. There is no cost for children under 12. Payment must be received before tickets will be mailed. If your guests are members in good standing at another shul, we are happy to offer them reciprocal High Holiday tickets free of charge. Please have a staff person at their shul send a note to ASBI via email (shul@asbi.org), fax (773-248-5001), or mail (540 W. Melrose St., Chicago, IL 60657), confirming that they are members in good standing.

Please be sure to include your guests in the number of tickets you are requesting and include a name for every guest. Guests should be included with your family's request.

 

NON-MEMBER TICKETS

Non-member tickets cost $440 per person, or $72 per person for students. All non-member tickets are for open seating. If you are attending for only Rosh Hashanah or only Yom Kippur, tickets are half-priced. Payment must be received before tickets will be mailed. If you are a member in good standing at another shul, we are happy to offer reciprocal High Holiday tickets free of charge. Please complete a ticket request form and also have a staff person at your shul send a note to ASBI via email (shul@asbi.org), fax (773-248-5001), or mail (540 W. Melrose St., Chicago, IL 60657), confirming that you are a member in good standing.

If you are unable to pay the standard ticket price and need to request an adjusted rate, there is an option on both the online and paper forms to request an adjusted amount.

If you are filling out a paper form, you can make a payment by sending a check made out to "ASBI," or pay with a credit card at asbi.org/payment.php and select "High Holiday Tickets" from the drop-down menu.

 

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY TICKETS?

All tickets will be mailed to the address noted on your form. Tickets will be mailed out in late August. If you would prefer to pick up your tickets from the shul office during office hours, please note so on your form.
