BIG NEWS! We're working on redeveloping our website to make it more informative and more user friendly. STAY TUNED!

Due to the ongoing requirement to limit the number of people in the building, and to maintain appropriate physical distancing, we will have a strict Reservations Only policy for seating during Rosh Hashanah. Please contact the office at 604-872-4222 or no later than Tuesday, September 15.

Synagogue members who require seats in addition to what is allocated according to your membership must make a reservation and the fee for extra seats this year will be $90. Reminder that children age 9 and up are welcome for services but you MUST reserve a seat for them and they MUST remain seated with an adult at all times. There will be no children's program or child care available this year.

If the demand for seating is high, we will prioritize seating our members first.

If you do not have a membership at Beth Hamidrash there will be a charge of $360 per seat. (If you pay for seats for Rosh Hashanah and then join as a member after the holidays, this amount will be deducted from your membership fee).
