ABOUT HIGH HOLIDAY SERVICES 2021


This year there are three locations for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services: in the ASBI parking lot, the Social Hall (“Hashkama”), and the main sanctuary. Scroll down to view the full schedule of services. PLEASE NOTE: The Parking Lot and Social Hall have reached full capacity. There is still space available in the Main Sanctuary!

There will not be assigned seats for any of our services this year. This means that your ticket will provide entry and you are welcome to sit in any available seat during High Holiday services. Aisle seats will be reserved for those with limited mobility.

 

SAFETY POLICIES FOR 2021 HIGH HOLIDAY SERVICES

 

These policies were created with the guidance of Dr. Dylan Slotar and Dr. Stacy Raviv, informed by current CDC and Chicago city guidelines. All ASBI guidelines are subject to change based on evolving public health circumstances.

  • MASKING: Masks that cover your mouth and nose MUST BE WORN by all people over age 2 at all times indoors. We recommend KN95 or comparable masks which provide more substantial protection.
  • VACCINATION: Everyone 12 and older must attest that they are FULLY VACCINATED.
  • KIDS: Infants and children under age 2 should be held in the arms of a parent or otherwise prevented from walking around the shul. Unvaccinated children age 2 through 11 are welcome to attend teffilot, but should wear a mask at all times indoors. Please ensure that they sit or stand next to a parent or adult while in the shul and avoid unnecessary movement throughout the sanctuary.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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 (including children who are in college). Individual Memberships include only one adult ticket, in addition to tickets for any children 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.

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. If you are a member and are purchasing tickets for guests, please include your guests on your own ticket request form.

 

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.

 

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 email shul@asbi.org 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.

*If this cost presents a financial difficulty for you, please email shul@asbi.org to make arrangements.

 

ABOUT THE OUTDOOR MINYAN

The outdoor minyan will be meeting at the following times:

NON-MEMBER TICKETS

Non-member tickets cost $440 per person, or $72 per person for students. 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 email shul@asbi.org 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 pay 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. If you would prefer to pick up your tickets from the shul office during office hours, please note so on your form.

If you request tickets within a few days of Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur, your ticket will be available to pick up when you arrive for services. Please let the usher at the door know that you have a ticket ready for you.
