___ We do not plan to be at Cong. Tifereth Zvi both days Rosh Hashanah and all of Yom Kippur, as we plan to daven somewhere else as well, but my family will be at Tifereth Zvi as follows:
All checks for DUES and SEATS should be made payable to "Congregation Tifereth Zvi" and either (a) returned with this form; or (b) delivered to the shul, 26 Columbia Avenue, Cedarhurst.
In accordance with Poskim (see Mishna Berurah 584:8), it is preferable for one to purchase for himself a yamim nora'im aliyah. The Kehillah sells each aliyah to the highest sealed bidder, with all bids made privately in advance of Yom Tov.
To bid on an aliyah, follow these simple steps: (1) send an e-mail to
email@example.com with "aliyos" in the subject line; and (2) in that e-mail, specify:
a. the aliyah desired,
b. the amount bid,
c. provide your name, or the name of the person for whom you are bidding, and
d. whether you would accept an alternative kibud as a second choice.
Kibbudim available: all aliyos and maftir for Rosh Hashanah (each day) & Yom Kippur (including Mincha) and pesichah l'Neilah.
