Yom Kippur Afternoon: Musical Interlude

Ordering Tickets and Prayer Books

Adults 35 and under can take advantage of Shir Hadash’s New Song-Young Adult Membership and receive full membership in the synagogue, including High Holy Day tickets, for less than the cost of High Holy Day tickets alone!

Copies of Gates of Repentance are available for sale at the office, 20 Cherry Blossom Lane, Los Gatos, or you can order them from CCAR Press (see below). We encourage you to secure your own copy of the prayer book as we may not have sufficient books for loan.
