1. Do we need tickets and can we bring other family members?
Tickets are not necessary.  Extended family members are welcome to attend, and you certainly may invite friends and neighbors, too.  Members should pay their dues prior to the holidays, and we ask and encourage nonmembers to make a donation after the holidays.  If you are inspired to join the shul, just let us know - we'd be happy to have you! 

2. Which machzor will the services follow?
Once again we will using the Art Scroll Machzor for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  We will have a limited number of extra machzorim available.  Otherwise they can be purchased at Rosenblums, Kesher Stam, or www.artscroll.com.

3. Will there be children’s programing?
Yes!  We will be coordinating Rosh Hashanah kids' programing for children from ages 2 to 6 (with the help of some of our wonderful teenagers).  We hope to also offer programming for older children and are working on the details now.

4. Who is leading our davening this year?
Once again we are honored to have the talented AY Karsh serving as our sheliach zibur for maariv, musaph, and Kol Nidre.  Shaya Avner will blow shofar, and our many in-house talented members will lead other parts of the davening.  Marty Zimmerman will once again be gabbai rishon, assisted by Ken Avner.

5. Will there be security?
Yes, there will be security which we have coordinated with the Cook County Sherriff and the Village of Northbrook.  If you plan on parking your car overnight for any of the holiday, it is imperative to use our parking lot.
