Please read this letter from our Rabbi and some information about our upcoming High Holidays services and events.

Order Tickets, Memberships, Yizkor Book

Visit the Membership and High Holidays section of our Online Store to:

  • Renew or begin your Actors' Temple Membership.
  • Buy your High Holiday Tickets for Rosh Ha-Shanah (Sept 9-11, 2018) and Yom Kippur (Sept 18-19, 2018).

  • Please note that you can order everything online and choose to pay offline by sending us a check or calling in your payment card.
  • If you prefer an entirely offline solution, please use the forms below.

List in our Yizkor Book

To provide the names and text for those being honored in the Yizkor Book, we recommend providing us with the text in two different ways, to make sure we receive the information correctly and on time.

  • Please send a copy of your Yizkor Book text to Rabbi Jill directly:
  • Also provide your text in the fill-in boxes when purchasing each Yizkor Book item while you are in the Membership and High Holidays section of our Online Store.
  • We encourage online ordering and payment but if you are using the forms below, please write in your text.
  • If you prefer an entirely offline solution, please use the forms below.

Please Join or Renew and Save!

Please note: You qualify for a significant discount on High Holiday, Passover Seder, and many event tickets only if you are a member, and our membership year now begins on September 1st, so please join the Actors' Temple, or renew your existing membership, and save even more.

Whether you are renewing an existing membership or joining for the first time, buying your High Holiday tickets, or purchasing space in our new Yizkor Book, you can do all these things at our online store, even putting them all into a single order, which can accommodate as many items as needed. This will save you time, effort, and possibly even a postage stamp.

If you are a new member, or an existing member who needs to change some information (address, phone, e-mail, family information, etc.) please make all your purchases online, then print and fill out the membership form, and return it to us, so that we can keep all of your extended information on file.
