High Holy Day Schedule

banner

 

The Days of Awe are a special time of the year at Or Chadash. Beginning with Selichot through Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and culminating with Hakafot for Simchat Torah, we study, pray and celebrate together.

   

There is no charge for any service and everyone is welcome.  At the same time, the synagogue depends on the support of the community - your contributions and participation make our presence possible.  All donations will be gratefully received. 

We request that you register for services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as well as the Rosh Hashasnah Catered Luncheon.

The Rosh Hashanah Catered Luncheon
 Cost: $25 per person for Members and $30 for Non-Members.
 
Luncheon reservations must be received by September 8.

Or Chadash Blogs Elul:  Check Us Out!
For the last few years, Rabbi Phyllis Sommer has embarked on a social media project to prepare for the High Holy Days through reflection and introspection in the month of Elul. Her project, #BlogElul, has resonated with Jews across the world, and has given rise to a lot of Elul content in social media–and now it’s time for Or Chadash to join the movement! During the month of Elul, as we prepare to receive the year 5776, members of the Or Chadash community will create posts centered around the themes provided by Rabbi Sommer. This blog will collect these posts and allow us to engage in meaningful conversations via comments and perhaps even your own responses on your social media. We encourage you to participate in the worldwide conversation in order to enrich your Elul experience.

We will collect those posts in a the blog which will allow us to engage in meaningful conversations via comments and perhaps even your own responses on your social media.
