Step-by-Step Instructions

  2. Select the services you plan to attend. Each member in your account will receive a ticket to those services. New this year, if you are a one-person household, you will receive a complimentary second ticket so you may invite a guest to attend services with you. If your plans change and you want to attend a service you didn’t select – no worries! Just show up on the holiday, and we’ll take care of you

  3. Add guest tickets. You can purchase Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur holiday passes for extended family and friends ($180/holiday). Children under the age of 6 are free. These passes allow guests to attend any and all services on that particular holiday. For guests ages 22-39, we offer special services designed for young professionals at a subsidized rate of $25 each. If you prefer to have your guests purchase their own tickets, you can share THIS LINK.

  4. Update/Add your listing for the Memorial Book. Every year at Yom Kippur, Washington Hebrew publishes a Memorial Book that is a meaningful remembrance of loved ones who live on in our hearts. You can update your listing or add one if the form fields are blank. Please note that Memorial Book information must be received by Thursday, August 24.

  6. Confirmation. After submitting your form, you’ll receive a confirmation email listing all the tickets you ordered (and any add-ons). Save this email on your phone or print it and bring it with you to services. We can’t wait to see you!
