Important High Holy Day Security Information
- Each time you arrive for a service during Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur, please have your ticket and a photo ID (driver’s license, passport, or state, military, TIS security ID, or student ID) ready to be checked by the ushers.
- The name on the ticket must match the name on the photo ID, and tickets are not transferable.
- For everyone’s security, adults without photo identification will not be admitted.
- Children do not need to show ID.
- If you use a different name at the synagogue than that which is on your identification, please contact the office and we will be happy to provide a replacement ticket.

Subject: Our New Reality – Living with Increased Security
Recent events have determined the need for all of us to practice increased security and caution in our daily lives including when we worship.
However, we can do a lot if we just work together and follow some basic rules:
- Do not open the entrance gate or hold the gate open for someone you do not know. Everyone should have a security badge. Be welcoming, but careful.
- If you see something, say something. Don’t be shy. You will see further information in My Shofar about the best way to report suspicious activity.
Specifically for the High Holy Days
- For the High Holy Days you must have a ticket and matching, government issued, valid ID to enter.
- No one will enter the Synagogue until security screening begins.
- Bags will be searched if the person has no ticket or is not known to the security team. Random bag checks will also occur.
- We will have increased security in the form of trained professionals.
