Member Tickets

Members in good standing receive one ticket for each adult household member for our sanctuary services. Children 25 and under are included in their parents’ households.

Ticket distribution will be by email. Members in good standing should have received their High Holy Day tickets by email. If you have questions about your ticket eligibility, please email Maribeth Batcha at mbatcha@cbebk.org.

Guest Tickets

Members in good standing may purchase up to four (4) guest tickets for services in our Sanctuary. The cost per ticket is $180, per holy day, or $360 for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Tickets are available here. As of 9/14, our guest ticket form is closed for Rosh Hashanah, but you can still use it to purchase guest tickets for Yom Kippur.   

Guests will pick up their tickets at the members services table on the first day they come to services. Guest tickets for Rosh Hashanah can be used for all Rosh Hashanah services, and guest tickets for Yom Kippur can be used for all Yom Kippur services. When purchasing your guest tickets, please make sure to purchase for the day you need, as tickets are not-transferable.  

Reciprocal Tickets

Reciprocal tickets may be for those who live more than 90 miles from CBE who are members in good-standing at a URJ affiliated synagogue. If you are a member of a URJ affiliated synagogue who would like to attend High Holy Day services at CBE, please contact the Executive Director of your synagogue. They will fill out this form for you and should send it to the attention of Maribeth Batcha by email at mbatcha@cbebk.org.

To ensure the form is received in time for the Holy Days, we recommend that you start this process no later than August 21, 2023. We will fulfill member tickets before we fulfill reciprocal requests.

Brooklyn Jews Tickets

Tickets for our Brooklyn Jews services in the Union Temple House are available to all, and can be purchased here.

Tickets are $40 each or $140 for all Brooklyn Jews services. CBE members may attend for free, but we ask that they register for tickets using the same form.

Youth and Family Services (for ages 0–12)

Our Youth and Family Services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings are held under a large tent on the patio behind the Old Stone House in JJ Byrne Park and are open to the public. Services are broken down by age group, and are each about 45 minutes long. Our Yachad and camp team host children’s activities on site, and we encourage families to stay, play, and connect.

On Erev Rosh Hashanah and Kol Nidre, we also offer Tot Services for ages 0–5 in the CBE Ballroom, 274 Garfield Pl.


Is there assigned seating?

No, we do not have assigned seating at any of our services. We highly recommend that those with special seating needs arrive early so that we are able to assist you.

I’m not a member of any synagogue, and I would like to spend the holidays at CBE. What can I do?

You must be a CBE member in good standing to attend CBE Member Services in the CBE Sanctuary. If you’re not a member, this is a wonderful time to join! Please click here for information about CBE membership.

If you’re not quite ready to join, you can purchase tickets for our Brooklyn Jews Services (welcoming services geared toward those in their 20s–30s), join our Altshul Services (traditional egalitarian services), join our our Israeli Services (services in Hebrew for Israelis), or come to Egalitarian Sephardi Mizrahi Services (services delivered in Maghrebi and Yerushalmi nusahim). Youth and Family Services are also available for everyone, and you do not need a ticket.

What can you tell me about accessibility?

Large print machzors will be available for all sanctuary services. Sanctuary services are accessible via lift. Please enter at the blue vestibule on Garfield Place. ADA compliant restrooms can be found in the sanctuary building.

The Jewish Braille Institute can also help you or a loved one who is blind or visually impaired celebrate the Jewish holidays with FREE machzorim (prayer books), Selichot, Taschlich prayers, Yizkor prayers, a 16-month holiday calendar, and much more, all in accessible formats. JBI can help you or a loved one who is blind or visually impaired celebrate the Jewish holidays with FREE machzorim (prayer books), Selichot, Taschlich prayers, Yizkor prayers, a 16-month holiday calendar, and much more, all in accessible formats. Please make requests for High Holy Day materials prior to September 7, 2023.

I'm a CBE member, and I need help walking to services or I have a loved one who needs help. What support can you offer me?

We are happy to help! Please email Chesed, our group of CBE volunteers, at chesed@cbebk.org.

Tell me about security.
We provide extra security during the High Holy Days, and all bags will be searched. No one will be permitted to enter any of our adult services without a ticket.

What if I can't find my ticket?
Please contact us by 12:00 PM on Friday, September 14. After that date, we ask that you visit our Member Services table located outside the sanctuary prior to the start of the service that you wish to attend.

Which Mahzor do you use?
We use Mahzor Lev Shalem in our main sanctuary service. Brooklyn Jews uses Mahzor Chadash. Digital copies of mahzorim will be during the livestreams of our services.
