Celebrating a simcha? Mazal tov! Please use this form to request aliyot and other honors for your special day.
Use this form to request honors, including aliyot, for your celebration
All are welcome to attend and participate in our services, regardless of ethnicity or religion. In keeping with tradition, aliyot, and most of the other ritual honors during the service may only be performed by Jewish people. As our congregation affiliates with the Conservative Movement of Judaism, the designation “Jewish” for all ritual purposes applies only to someone born to a Jewish (biological) mother, or someone
who has undergone a formal conversion ceremony in keeping with our movement’s standards. If in doubt, or if you have specific concerns about this, please speak to the rabbi well in advance.
While most of the honors can only be performed by Jewish people, we have special honors for non-Jewish family members and guests as well. This is especially encouraged if a parent or grandparent happens to not be Jewish. If this is relevant, please specify in "Other requests" at the bottom of this form.
As an egalitarian congregation, we ask that, as much as possible, an equal number of women and men be honored with aliyot.
We will try our best to accommodate your requests, though we cannot guarantee that we will be able to grant them.
All recipients of the above honors must be in the synagogue by 9:30 AM. If they are not present when the Torah is taken out, their honors may be
given to someone else.
