Update 17: Annual Shul Fees & Rosh Hashana Seats
IMPORTANT – PLEASE TREAT AS URGENT
Dear Tzemach Tzedek Members and Friends,
As we approach the Yomim Noraim, it is again that time of year to Renew your Annual Shul Membership (if you are a member or wish to become a member) or to Pay your Annual Shul Fee (if you are a shul user but not a member).
For those who are davening at home or elsewhere this Rosh Hashana & Yom Kippur, you can Renew your Membership, Become a Member or Pay your Shul Fee here: trybooking.com/BLHZZ
For those who wish to secure seats to daven at TT over Yomtov please read on:
This year, the impact of Covid has created a double challenge. On one hand, the Shul’s expenses, particularly for Tishrei have skyrocketed. This is b"H partly due to the large number of people who have answered our RHYK Survey indicating that they wish to attend Shul over Yomtov. Combined with the social distancing requirements needed to accommodate as many people as we can, we have arranged for 3 daytime Tefillah sessions on Rosh Hashana.
This means we have increased costs for three sets of daytime chazzonim and baalei koreh, three times the cleaning, extra expenses for a larger tent, etc. Therefore, we will only be able to assign RH seats to those who have paid their Membership/Shul Fee.
On the other hand, we are empathetic to the families who have been negatively financially impacted at this time. As such, we have decided to reduce the Annual Shul Membership/ Fee by 30% off last year’s pricing. For those who wish to contribute extra, you can add an extra amount in the donations option and it will be greatly appreciated.
If you require a family price or would like to work out a payment plan or require a further subsidised rate above the 30% reduced option, please contact Yehuda Spielman 0402 923 248 or Miriam Spielman 0401 512 927.
Pay your Annual Membership/Shul Fee and Book Your Seat in one transaction (complimentary seat included). Click here: trybooking.com/BLGMA
To comply with the very limited socially distanced space available, strictly no children under bar and bas mitzva may book. We apologise for this but we don't have another option at this time.
The session times for Rosh Hashana Daytime Tefillos are 7am in the Marquee, 9:30am inside the Shul and 10:30am in the Marquee. TT reserves the right to change the time and particulars of your Minyan if needed.
There will be additional sessions for Tekias Shofar for those who aren't attending these Minyonim and further details will be announced.
Please note we are not yet taking bookings for Yom Kippur seats as we are still sorting out the logistics. On Yom Kippur, being a full day davening, we are currently able to host 2 Minyonim and we are working to maximise our options.
Annual Membership/Shul Fees are now open and are due by next Friday 11th September (unless a special arrangement has been made).
Due to the very limited seat availability, last minute bookings will not be possible. We urge you to secure your seat now: trybooking.com/BLGMA
Wishing you and your family a Kesiva Vachasima Tova!
