High Holiday Seat Information

Kesher Israel is pleased to offer seats for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur together or for each individual holiday.

Seats for all services and locations must be purchased in advance and will be assigned. Charts of seat locations will be posted in the shul upon arrival.
