High Holiday Seats

Now that Chodesh Elul has begun, it is time again to begin making arrangements for Yomim Noraim. We ask that you take the time to read this carefully and to respond promptly according to the instructions below. We also ask your patience and indulgence as we try to make the holidays as safe and comfortable as possible for everyone.

We are planning for the following minyan choices for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur this year:

1) Main Shul 8:30am
2) Social Hall 8:30am
3) Hashkama, in the Beis Midrash 7:30am
All minyanim will exist throughout Yom Tov (for Shacharis, Mincha, and Maariv), and you are expected to attend the same minyan throughout Yom Tov.

Each minyan will have posted lists of registered attendees and we cannot accommodate people who select one minyan and then go to a different one, or people who are not signed up. As in the past, we will be assigning specific seats in the main shul and members with permanent seats will have first right to use these seats.

Each Full or Associate Member in Good Standing is entitled to THREE seats per family, and each Weekday Member is entitled to ONE seat per family. Additional seats in any minyan may be purchased by Members at the price of $100 per seat. Non-members may purchase seats in any minyan for $200 per seat.

If anyone has difficulty with the financial requirements described above, please speak with Ephraim Jacobson, Daryl Hagler, or Michael Kann. No one will be denied the opportunity to daven at KBY for financial reasons.

COVID Arrangements
We recognize that the Covid situation continues to evolve rapidly, and as a result, we may need to make changes to our policy as Yom Tov approaches. Our current plan is as follows:

1. Members and guests who are vaccinated will need to provide proof of vaccination to the shul’s Medical Advisors. Individuals who provide this information will not be required to wear a mask in the building, although everyone is still encouraged to wear a mask to help protect themselves and others.
One can provide proof by either uploading it upon submitting the form below; or by uploading it later at; or by emailing it to

2. Members and guests who are not vaccinated, or who do not provide proof of vaccination, will be required to wear a mask over their nose and mouth at all times inside the KBY building. Note that this includes all children under 12, and we ask for assistance from their parents to make sure this policy is observed.

3. In addition, anyone over age 12 who does not provide proof of vaccination will be required to submit a negative PCR test within 72 hours before both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at If this negative test result is not provided, the person will not be permitted to daven at KBY.

4. Any requests for exceptions to this policy should be submitted to the shul’s Medical Advisors for consideration, by emailing

5. The Board and Medical Advisors will take the necessary steps to ensure everyone davening at KBY complies with this policy.


Action Required - DEADLINE: AUGUST 29

1. Please request your seats in the form below and make payment.

2. Once we have received your seat requests AND your proofs of vaccination, we will confirm your reservation. All information needs to be received by August 25th.

We are excited about spending these holidays together again at our shul and your participation in the multiple minyanim being offered by KBY.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this process.
