Dear Friends,

As the summer days are starting to get shorter, we are proud to present our High Holidays Services 5780/2019. High Holiday Services will be held at 111 Lamplighters Drive. Our beautiful and heimish location will allow for praying in the utmost of comfort and will provide ample room for our children’s program. Please click here for our High Holidays services schedule.

At OTC we have always welcomed every Jew with open arms, regardless of background, affiliation or financial means. Members and non-members, regulars and visitors alike sit side by side with no tickets and no names on the chairs. This is a core value of our shul that we hope always to keep. At OTC we strive to build a strong Jewish community and ensure the continuity of our people by offering our wide range of programs. We do so with compassion and open minds, accepting each Jew as he or she is, at any level of commitment or interest.

As Rosh Hashanah approaches, we reflect on our accomplishments of the past year.  Our programs have attracted so many community members from all walks of life to discover the excitement of Judaism and the power of its traditions. Our highly acclaimed Hebrew School has over one hundred students enrolled, our shul membership is growing and our social/educational programs draw hundreds of participants annually.

I take this opportunity to thank all of you who have joined the membership club this past year and helped ensure the financial stability of OTC. Your contributions have taken us to where we are today and I value your friendship and support.

While we will maintain Chabad’s policy that everyone is welcome to OTC regardless of payment, we recognize that membership also has advantages. Membership in a shul represents a commitment to the community. It means that you are involved in keeping Yiddishkeit alive and seeing it continue to the next generation. It also gives you a framework of giving and contributing to the shul, and it means that you are a partner in supporting the financial needs of the shul which we are all part of and which is thank G‑d growing.

As we approach the New Year, I turn to you once again and ask you to renew your membership or consider becoming a new member of OTC. Membership dues for a family are $800 per year (which would include the $250 for High Holidays seats) and can be paid in different installments.

Looking forward to celebrating this upcoming High Holidays season with you.

Wishing you and your family a Happy and Healthy Sweet New Year.
