Registration for Members and Family Members who are not Kol Emet Congregants
For security purposes, everyone, regardless of whether they are a member, needs to be registered for High Holidays services which they are attending.  Members of your family who are not Kol Emet congregants are welcome to attend all High Holiday services. When you register, please indicate how many non-congregant family members will be joining you at services.  We kindly suggest a donation of $118 per person, or whatever amount is meaningful for you.

Babysitting
Babysitting is available for any service, however prior registration is required either online or by calling our office to ensure that there will be a sitter available for the service you have requested. Parents must personally escort and sign children in and out of babysitting. Please understand that we reserve the right to refuse a babysitting request if you did not register in advance.

Accessibility
We are committed to ensuring that everyone, regardless of physical ability, is able to comfortably attend and participate in any of our High Holiday services.  If you have accessibility needs for any service, please note it and provide a phone number so that someone from our office may contact you to determine your individual needs.

Mahzorim
Due to limited storage space at Kol Emet, we do not have enough mahzorim (High Holiday prayer books) for every person.  We encourage you to bring your own machzor to services. If you wish to purchase a mahzor, we can order one for you for $54 per book.  They can be picked up from our office on or before the High Holidays.

Cars arriving at Kol Emet after the parking lot is full will be directed to the alternate parking site at the Lower Makefield Township pool. We only run one shuttle bus so plan to arrive at least 20 minutes before services begin. Drivers will drop off passengers at the upstairs entrance to Kol Emet. For your own safety, please do not park on Oxford Valley Road! Cars parked there may be ticketed or towed. You may also register to reserve a spot in our lot for $150, which is good for all High Holiday services.
