High Holiday Tickets

Congregation Beth Ahabah appreciates the commitment of J-Town participants to building a strong Jewish community in Richmond. The clergy and leadership of the synagogue want to make sure that you have a home for the High Holidays, and would like to invite you to services.

If you are not a member, and are interested in attending Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, Bet Ahabah would like to offer you tickets. Normally, guest High Holiday tickets are $250 for the season; however, we realize that this is a stumbling block to many in their 20s and 30s who are not financially able to invest that amount of money in synagogue life. A donation of $25 (or whatever you can afford) is suggested and will be used to subsidize future J-Town programs throughout the year. Also, all college students (undergraduate and graduate) are welcome to attend High Holy Day services free of charge when you show your student ID. 

Every person attending Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services must have a ticket. For High Holy Day tickets, contact Lori Lacy at or 804-358-6757, and provide your name, phone number, email and mailing address. If you would like to bring a guest, please include their information as well.

Apple Picking

Stock up on apples for Rosh Hashanah!

Join J-Town Saturday, Sept. 8 for apple picking at Carter Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville. We'll meet at 10:45 a.m. at Beth Ahabah, followed by lunch at Mountain Grille at 12:30 p.m. We'll be picking apples from 1:15-2:45, with help from the staff to know what's ripe, and how and where to pick.

The orchard will have plastic bags available, but you can also bring bags or baskets from home.

RSVP is recommended. Reply to Lori Lacy at or 358-6757.
