Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions


Shalom! Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur envisioning and planning has resulted in the decision to hold hybrid services for the first day of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and online services for Erev Rosh Hashanah, second day of Rosh Hashanah, and Kol Nidre. 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 only limited in person options are available. This year's member tickets are partially personal zoom links, and we are only able to offer digital tickets to non-members.

Service extra offerings will include the annual adult study havurah's engaging discussion series only on Yom Kippur afternoon via zoom, tashlich (socially distanced outdoor service) following Rosh Hashanah second day services, 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 for family members 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 zoom-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 and invite others to join us. 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.
