Dear Friends,

As the High Holidays are upon us, we are delighted to present our membership package and High Holidays Services for 5784. High Holiday Services will be held at our beautiful facility at 111 Lamplighters Drive.

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. We are proud to be at the forefront of outreach and it is our hope that our 5784 programs will inspire even more of our brothers and sisters to get involved.

5784 will be an exciting year for OTC with lots of new programming. Rabbi Leibel and Shterna Blum have recently joined the OTC team and will be heading a new department offering programming dedicated to reaching out and engaging young professionals, young Jewish families, and youth in Ottawa.

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 $900 per year (which would include the $300 for High Holidays seats) and can be paid in different installments. To join our membership club please click here to fill out our secure online 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 as costs of living continues to rise.

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.

Rabbi Menachem M. Blum
