Membership Dues & High Holiday Tickets
 
Tickets for High Holiday services are available to those who have contributed 20% or have made alternative arrangements with the Treasurer for their 2023-2024 membership dues. Tickets are now available for pick up at the front office at Congregation Beth Torah during business hours. During the holidays, a Will Call table will be in the lobby for ticket pickup.
 
As a reminder, we are asking all congregants to discard the orange tickets we first distributed and use the new BLUE tickets we are sending. Our security guards will have a sample copy of the new tickets on hand and will accept only blue tickets.
 
Please use your parking pass(es) and Shield of David pledge card provided to you.  Nothing has changed with your parking pass or Shield of David Card.

Become an Usher
Our Men's Club is recruiting volunteers to assist with ushering during the holidays. Volunteers will be tasked with showing attendees to their seats, assisting with the Shield of David ask, and being ready in case of emergencies.


Shield of David
 
One of our most important fundraisers is our Shield of David campaign. The monies raised go directly to our operating budget to cover the daily expenses and costs incurred by our synagogue. These funds are vital to our continued success and ongoing efforts to ensure we can continue to nurture an inclusive Jewish environment that connects our diverse community with passion and purpose through prayer, learning, love of Israel, friendship, and Social Action / Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).
 
Extra Shield of David cards will be available in the front lobby on Rosh Hashanah Day 1. Please pick up another one if you forgot yours and you can complete your pledge during the annual Presidential Shield of David appeal. You may also complete your donation through your ShulCloud account page, or click the button below.
 
We ask each member-family to consider a donation to the Shield of David. We want you to keep in mind Beth Torah’s mission and the importance of the Shield of David campaign to the synagogue.

Contact David Duchin, Development VP, at developmentvp@congregationbethtorah.org for questions.

If you need an additional parking pass, please call our front office at 972-234-1542.

Please enter our building for services through the west entrance/main doors with your BLUE holiday ticket in hand. As part of our security precautions, we may ask people we do not recognize for identification.

Parking

There should be ample parking available at Congregation Beth Torah for our holidays. However, if overflow parking is needed, attendees can park on W. Lookout Drive.

Canyon Creek Country Club also is allowing our community to park across the street in their lot next to the swimming pool.

PLEASE make sure to bring the provided YELLOW hanging parking tag that was provided to you with your tickets. This allows our security to know that you are here for services and that your car is not suspicious.
