Please be reminded that you will need a ticket for each member of your family who will be attending the main service (recommended for ages 12 and up) and tickets are non-transferable.

Family members or guests who belong to other synagogues must submit a letter from their synagogue stating that they are members in good standing in order to receive reciprocal tickets to attend Services at Moriah. Due to space constraints, we will only honor reciprocity from out of state USCJ Synagogues. Letters can be faxed to 847/948-8240.

Moriah is using a new High Holiday prayer book, the Koren Machzor. Members are strongly encouraged to purchase them for themselves, family members and guests. Additional donations are welcome to increase the Shul’s supply of books and can be dedicated in memory or honor of a loved one. The two-volume set ($50) can be purchased by clicking here.

Lulav and Etrog ($55.00/set) will be available for pick-up on Thursday, September 20th, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm.
