re: Astoria Center of Israel (ACI) High Holiday Schedule - A couple of corrections to my previous post:

1 - The non-member ticket price is $250 not $275 - Again - I stress that if price is an issue please get in contact and we could work something out !!!

2 - for S'lichot on Saturday Night, September 4 - There will be a dessert collation at 7:30 PM, BEFORE (not after services) which begin at 9PM

The tickets are not needed for S'Lichot - Please come and be our guest to see our beautiful and historic Synagogue for this delicious dessert next Saturday evening and then join us and listen to our inspiring clergy and choir as we begin the High Holiday season and raise your spirit with us !!!
