High Holiday Seating: The High Holiday season is approaching and we hope that the coming year will bring good tidings for us and all of Klal Yisroel. Plans for our 5779 High Holiday Services are now underway. This year Rosh Hashanah falls on Monday, September 10th and Tuesday, September 11th, 2018. The web link to register for seats and the configuration of the seating plan in the shul can be viewed on-line at http://HighHolyDays.BethElNewton.org. When you register, you will find a display of the seats that you had the previous year. If you wish to retain those seats, please check the box that says: "Check here to request the same seats as last year". If you wish to change your seats or are ordering seats for the first time please give three preferences in priority order for the section and seats you want to sit in. In any case, please enter the number of seats you are ordering in each category (Men's, Women's, Children's), and complete your registration. We will work to assign seats on a first-come, first-serve basis, but will be mindful of other criteria when we assign seats as we strive to be accommodating to all our members. We ask that your seat orders be in by Sunday, August 19th, 2018 so that we will have ample time to make the seating assignments fairly and properly. If you do not renew your previous years’ seats by that date, the seats will be released to the general seating pool. Please go to the above link and fill out the on line form ASAP. Those who do not have access to a computer can call the Shul office for a paper copy to submit.
