Based on the SOTC annual budget, the estimated cost of a member unit in our Shul is  $1625 per year per family unit. Sponsoring Members take the achrayus (responsibility) of fully supporting the operating costs of the Shul and insuring every individual, regardless of their financial capacity, is able to feel welcome in our kehillah by underwriting an additional membership.

Please make your seat request below. A member of our team will follow up with reservation details.
We will make every effort to seat your party as requested - we appreciate your understanding if alternate seats are presented. All seat requests must be confirmed with payment/payment plan by 8/1. At that time, seats will be released for reservation on a first-come first-serve basis. Member dues must be current/on a payment plan to purchase seats prior to the general public release 8/20.

YOMIM NORAIM APPEALThe Shul is reliant on the Yomim Noraim Appeal in covering normal operating and maintenances expenses that occur throughout the year. Every September, coinciding with the Yomim Noraim, we ask that you make a pledge to support the Shul we all love and frequent. Rather than ask volunteers to make calls, we hope you will respond generously to the appeal:

Yomim Noraim Groups are provided to assist parents in attending services by creating a safe, positive environment for children 2-10 years of age. Children 10-12 with a purchased seat are welcome to utilize the youth supervised break room (no programming will be provided).
