HIGH HOLIDAYS 5781/2020

Shalom! Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur envisioning and planning has been underway for months, and keeps changing, but we know the dates and are presenting our definite plans now. Rabbi Alanna Sklover will again be leading our High Holy day services. Our excellent education director and her staff are planning our children and teen programming. The teen and family services that have been so well received in the past, will of course continue this year. We are very excited to bring you the high quality experiences that you have always enjoyed here at Or Hadash, despite the fact that the current pandemic necessitates that almost everything be digital this year. This year's tickets are actually personal zoom links for all service options - traditional davening or one of our non-traditional, creative options.

Service extra offerings will include the annual adult study havurah's engaging discussion series the mornings of Rosh Hashanah (first day only) and Yom Kippur, tashlich (socially distanced outdoor service, also available digitally) following Rosh Hashanah first day services, shofar service on the second day of Rosh Hashanah (socially distanced outdoor service, also available digitally, preceded by a byo-picnic), meditation and a Healing service as part of Yom Kippur afternoon, and of course, spiritually fulfilling main services. 

Members have been sent a packet containing all of the schedules, events, and activities, and the forms to purchase guest tickets and include names in the Yizkor booklet. All of those forms are included in the attachments below.

Make our house your home for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
We cordially invite the community to join us for High Holiday services. The suggested donation for each High Holiday ticket (includes all Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services) is $250 for age 13 and over. You may also request one day tickets for Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur only for a suggested donation of $136 per ticket for age 13 and over. Activities are offered for children less than 13 years old at a suggested donation of $50 per child. Teens above Bar/Bat Mitzvah age are considered adults. This year, we ask for these suggested donations because we would like you to invest both in the present moment and the future of Or Hadash. As we innovate to provide high quality and meaningful digital experiences that keep our community and values at the center, we are also preparing for the future when we will be able to safely return to our building. Please support Or Hadash now, so that we will remain able to provide services and connection into the future
Note that ticket donation amounts may be applied toward your dues if you join Or Hadash this year.
Your tickets (zoom links) will be emailed to you.

There are many activities surrounding and during the High Holidays that we invite you to come and join us for.
