High Holiday FAQs
My child is home from college/ a recent graduate / living at home. Can they join us?
Yes, children under the age of 26 are invited to join us and do not require a guest ticket.
Will childcare be available this year?
No, unfortunately due to the complexities added by COVID, we will not be able to offer onsite childcare this year.
Are we holding a communal Break-the-Fast?
As of now, we are not offering Break-the-Fast, as we are unsure how communal eating will be affected by COVID in September. Please stay tuned for more information as we near the High Holidays.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the office with any questions or concerns. We are here to help!
Family, Guests, and High Holiday Visitors
High Holiday participation is of course included in CBT membership. Just like any other year, we welcome guests from near or far. In the past years, High Holiday ticket donations have been a significant portion of our annual budget and help to sustain this community, so we can open our welcoming doors and provide a loving and caring community for all. While we are not selling tickets this year, and invite you to join our community virtually this season, we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation. Our suggested donation is $360 for a guest and $125 for family or guest of a CBT member. We understand that many are experiencing financial hardship at this time, and are grateful for any donation in support of our community that is meaningful to you. We look forward to celebrating the High Holidays with you and welcoming you into our midst. Click here to register to join us if you are not a CBT Member.
