Seat Reservation for High Holiday
We look forward to sharing a meaningful High Holiday experience with you at Bar Yohai Sephardic Minyan. Once again, our services will be highlighted by the Chazzan Amikam Lasry, who for a fourth consecutive year will be with us from Montreal. He will help lead both Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services. Please take a moment to reserve seats for the Chagim, as well as your lulav and etrog.
Seat Reservations for High Holiday:
We kindly request the following donations with your reservation: $26 per person for member families in good standing; $150 per person for non-members; no charge for new members in their first year of membership. Please note that no one will be denied reservations due to financial constraints. If you feel you have a need for assistance, please contact Fred Zaghi at (408) 373-5287, in full confidentiality.
