Below please find some important information about the High Holy Days at Temple Sholom this year. 

  • Tickets will be sent to your email after High Holy Day reservations are submitted and confirmed. 
  • We always encourage our guests to wear masks. If the city of Chicago remains at a "High COVID Level" during the High Holy Days, we may require facemasks for those attending services and High Holy Day programs in person at Temple Sholom. 
  • There will be a socially distanced and masked section for those who would like it. You can request this in your in-person reservation.
  • Temple Sholom requires proof of full vaccination for those who are eligible to be vaccinated and come into the building. For purposes of these protocols, an individual is ‘Fully Vaccinated’ when:
    • The individual is two (2) weeks past completing the full initial course of a COVID-19 vaccine; and
    • One (1) week past receiving a booster of any type, once eligible for a booster.
  • Members (and their guests who have purchased tickets) are invited to attend in person (this could change if there are unforeseen restrictions due to COVID.
  • This year Temple Sholom will hold one Kol Nidre service, beginning at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, October 4. This year's Kol Nidre Service will be available both in person and online.
  • Tashlich will take place at 4:00 PM this year (previously at 5:00 PM) on Monday, September 26.
  • The Children's High Holy Day Experience (JK - 3rd Grade) and babysitting (children under 4 years) return for the High Holy Days! Both are available during our Morning Congregational Services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
  • Strollers will not be permitted into Temple Sholom during services. You may park your stroller outside on a tarp in the small ‘courtyard’ next to the building which will be monitored by security.
  • Diaper Bags will not be allowed into the Temple during services. There are clear plastic bags located at the security desk. Please feel free to take one when you arrive at the temple. This will make it easier for security to check the bags and allow traffic to flow more efficiently and effectively into the Temple. 
  • To receive High Holy Day tickets, congregants must be members in good standing. This means that you have paid 50% of your Annual Membership Commitment, set up up an installment plan for your Membership Commitment, or have communicated with with Temple Sholom's Finance Department concerning your needs during the 2022 - 2023 membership year. For membership related questions contact Stacy Charnay at stacy@sholomchicago.org. For payment related questions contact Jodi Morady at jodim@sholomchicago.org.
