Summer 2021

Dear Friends,

As the High Holidays are upon us, we are delighted to present our membership registration package and High Holidays Services for 5782. High Holiday Services will be held at our beautiful facility at 111 Lamplighters Drive as well as in our tent setup in our parking lot.

As we begin to see a glimmer of hope and enter the recovery phase from the COVID 19 pandemic, we hope and pray that our programming this year will reengage our community in person and inspire even more of our brothers and sisters to get involved in Jewish life. As our world gradually reopens, we pledge to remain true to our non-judgmental founding principle, that at OTC every Jew is accepted and loved. We will continue to maintain the OTC warmth as we bring our spiritual and uplifting approach to an ever-expanding circle of participants who will experience the joy of Jewish life.

Our services this year will have an indoor and/or outdoor option to allow everyone to experience the High Holidays in the safest way possible according to your comfort level. Please make sure to indicate your preference on the form so that we can prepare accordingly. Exact schedule will be posted on our website in the next few weeks.

As we approach the New Year, I turn to 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 in whichever option you choose) and can be paid in different instalments. To join our membership club please click here to fill out our secure online membership form..

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. 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. It also gives you a framework of giving to the shul to support our increasing financial needs and challenges that we have experienced during this pandemic.

I 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 look forward to celebrating this upcoming High Holidays season with you.

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