Seat Requests & Tickets       High Holiday Appeal    Book of Remembrance   High Holiday Schedule


If you plan on attending services for part or all of the High Holidays, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may ensure your seating. Once again we are pleased to offer complimentary High Holiday tickets to all members whose 2019 membership dues have been paid in full. All member families are entitled to two complimentary tickets while individual members are entitled to one ticket. Members who are receiving complimentary seats must request their seats so we know to expect you and  to assign you a seat.  Please note: You will not be automatically assigned a seat unless you have informed us of your attendance.

Purchase and/or request seats here

Additional seats for members' family (children and parents): $100 for one or all days
Seats for non-members and additional guests: $200 for one or all days
*Tickets are for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur*

See the Men's Seating Chart

While we are truly appreciative of the generosity of our Kehillah throughout the year and at the Annual Gala, the High Holidays are an opportune time to reflect on and reaffirm your commitment to WSIS.

It is your generous support that allows us to provide a warm, accepting and spiritual Jewish home fueled by inspiring Torah, beautiful prayer and innovative programming, and we hope we can count on you again this year. 

Once again, in lieu of auctioning off Aliyot or a public appeal, this appeal will serve as our primary High Holiday fundraiser. Please participate in our “Scroll of Honor” by giving to our campaign.

If you would like to participate, please fill out the form below or call the office at (212) 877-7652. You may also send in a check with "High Holiday Appeal" written in the memo line.

If you would like the option to bill to your account, rather than immediate payment, please log-in to your account. For assistance with your log-in, email

Community members may authorize us to publish the names of their departed relatives.There will be a charge of $18 for each name listed, for a maximum amount of $180 for unlimited names. For $250 you can dedicate a whole page.

The deadline to submit names for inclusion for Yom Kippur is Tuesday, September 24. (You must submit names each year to have a listing)
