Ticket Policy

Temple members in good standing financially and their immediate dependent children under their family membership will be entitled to High Holiday seating as part of their membership.

“In good standing financially” shall be defined as: All membership pledges, assessments, Religious School tuition, and other such financial obligations required by the Board of the membership, hereinafter called “fees,” MUST be paid in full for all PRIOR years, AND the current year’s dues pledge form must be received by the Temple Office.

All current year fees shall NOT be required to be paid in full to be in good standing, provided that those current fees are paid in accordance with the timetables established by the Board of Directors.

All fees owed after July from the prior fiscal year which remains unpaid shall place the member in the “not in good standing” category. An outstanding current year’s dues pledge form will also place the member in the “not in good standing” category.

Members of other congregations outside the City of Columbia with proof of membership and/or with High Holiday courtesy passes are entitled to the same seating privilege as Tree of Life members.

Students at local universities, military basic trainees, and clients at state institutions will be admitted at no cost upon presentation of appropriate identification cards.

All persons not covered under any of the preceding conditions must secure a High Holiday privilege card [$150.00 per person or $350 for a family]. Further, out-of-town guests of Tree of Life members are welcome to attend High Holiday services. A contribution is suggested by the Board of Directors for each individual.

The Tree of Life reaffirms its long-standing policy of offering complete access to membership to all persons and full participation to those whose financial positions limit their financial support of the Temple. This policy of open membership is not in any way altered by this Resolution.

For residents living in the greater Columbia area (defined as a 50-mile radius), not covered by a previous policy provision, if their residency in this area has been longer than the previous High Holy Days, tickets will not be made available.
