Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions


Shalom! Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur envisioning and planning for 2023/5784 is to again hold hybrid services for all services. Rabbi Alanna Sklover will be leading our High Holy day services with musical selections by our Makaylah (choir) and its director as a cantorial soloist, Josh McHugh and our new Student Rabbi Sam rounding out this trio of leaders. 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, or from your home since hybrid options are available. This year's member tickets are both personal zoom links and sanctuary seats, and we are happy to be able to offer both forms of tickets to non-members.

Service extra offerings will include the annual adult study havurah's engaging discussion series on Yom Kippur afternoon, 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 5-13 years old at a suggested donation of $50 per child. Teens above Bar/Bat Mitzvah age are considered adults. As usual, we ask for these suggested donations because we would like you to invest both in the present moment and the future of Or Hadash. 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 and your name will appear on the check-in lists at the solarium doors.
