If you have family or friends who would like to spend the holidays at TIS we are happy to offer reciprocity to those who are members of other synagogues. Please have a letter faxed to us at (619) 697-1102 from their home congregation stating that your guests are members in good standing and we will gladly provide free HHD tickets.

If you are planning on attending another synagogue, please let us know and we will be happy to send a letter asking that tickets be provided for you. Contact Kandice Zelaskowski at (619) 697-6001 or by email. Please note that we cannot guarantee the reciprocity of any other congregation.

Please indicate if your companions are unaffiliated in-town or out-of-town guests, adult unaffiliated single children of members ages 28 and younger, active military and their dependents, college students, or members in good standing of another synagogue. Be sure to include your guests’ full names and let them know that we will require a photo ID.

When Should I Expect My Tickets?

Your High Holy Day Tickets will be sent to you the week of August 5. Remember that your 2012-13 financial obligations to the synagogue must be current and you will be required to have paid all dues for the 2013-14 year or be on a payment plan before the tickets are mailed to prevent delays. If you have any questions regarding your financial obligations, please call the synagogue office at (619) 697-6001.
