High Holiday Registration

Welcome to High Holiday Online Registration 2022/5783!

This year's HIGH HOLIDAY REGISTRATION FORM is IMPORTANT....and long.  Please be patient, read carefully, and complete it in its entirety. 

This year we created the 5783 High Holiday Guidebook and mailed every member a copy; the information contained in that booklet may help answer some questions that you might have as you complete this form. If you did not receive a copy of the Guidebook, please contact Amy at


High Holiday services this year will be available to members IN-PERSON and/or VIRTUALLY, just as we did last year.  Since our sanctuary can only host a certain number of attendees at a time, we must monitor the number of congregants who attend each service. This form will ask you to specify each person's preference for attendance at each service, whether it's IN-PERSON, VIRTUAL, or NOT ATTENDING. 

For all IN-PERSON requests, please note: seats will be filled based on earliest registrations first.  If you are interested in being in-person for any or all services, it is in your best interest to submit your request EARLY.  We will do our best to accommodate your requests, however, we cannot make any guarantees.  Thank you, in advance, for your flexibility and understanding.

As we approach the start of Rosh Hashanah, each member family will receive an email indicating where they have been placed for each individual service, whether it's IN-PERSON or VIRTUAL.  You will need to print that email as your 'ticket' of entrance to the in-person service.  Streaming links will be sent out prior to the start of the High Holiday services for all VIRTUAL service viewing. Please carefully review your assignments so there is no confusion the day of services. 

IMPORTANT: if you are given VIRTUAL access for a specific service, we ask that you not show up to the IN-PERSON service location hoping to get a seat.  Each and every seat will be accounted for and we are unable to allow entrance to the building of anyone not on the IN-PERSON list. Similarly, please do not request a seat on this registration page if you or your family member(s) is/are not fully committed to attending the in-person service. We want to accommodate as many people as possible during each service.

Please take your time and complete this form carefully and completely.  If you have any questions, please contact Amy at

Just in case we need to ask you questions!
Please provide up to two email addresses for us to send all communications and streaming links prior to High Holidays.


Every congregant household who wishes to take part in Or Tzion High Holiday programming must make a Gift of the Heart commitment. Your Gift of the Heart includes your membership dues, High Holiday seats for you and your immediate family members (up to age 23) and your Yom Kippur appeal. We will not be selling non-member tickets for access to our services.  High Holiday tickets and access to services are only available to congregants. 
Gift of the Heart asks congregants to participate in a voluntary giving model that creates sustained financial support so that Or Tzion can expand the opportunity to create positive memories and learning experiences for all of our members. Congregants making a Gift of the Heart commitment of $3,600 or more will become a member of the M’orot (Luminary) Society, a new major gifts program of Congregation Or Tzion.
For more information and to make your commitment if you have not already done so, please go to:

(If you are unsure if you have made a Gift of the Heart pledge, please email Pam at


Services will be held at Congregation Or Tzion for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  In order to accommodate as many congregants as possible, there will be two, similar, in-person sessions of the same abbreviated service that will run consecutively during Rosh Hashanah Day 1 and Yom Kippur morning; please see below for service start times.  Both Sessions will be available to stream online during the live service or can be viewed at a later time. On Rosh Hashanah Day 2, a full Rosh Hashanah service will take place which will also be streamed for virtual viewing.

A____ H L___ (father of D_____ L____)
V___ A__ M_____ 
(sister of D_____ L____)
You are forever in our hearts,
The L____Family

My grandfather, A____L___, was quite a character!  He was a beloved teacher and highly sought-after photographer. A___ was a beloved husband, father, uncle, and grandfather and he loved his family fiercely in return. He always had hobbies; he spent decades collecting trains and antique toys, he earned his pilot's license, he loved to travel the country by car to see what each state had to offer, and he was a voracious reader and reciter of poetry. I was lucky enough to travel with my grandparents in their RV on several occasions where we listened to hours and hours of musicals and trucker music on cassette tapes.  We drove hundreds of miles each day, but we were never allowed to ask the forbidden question, ‘are we there yet?’. For him, the beauty was in the journey, not the destination. 

A___ was always kind and generous to waiters, bellmen, and the wheelchair guys at the airport. He was witty in conversation and in writing. And he unabashedly loved his wife with every fiber of his being. When his great-grandson, A___, was younger, he too loved trains and played with them constantly. Born 4 years after A____'s passing, how I wish they could have shared that together! But it makes me believe that A___’s legacy lives on in his great-grandson.

Project Isaiah is our Jewish Community's annual High Holiday drive benefiting the community at large.  It is named for the prophet Isaiah, who when asked why we fast on Yom Kippur, responded "Is it not to share your bread with the hungry?" (Isaiah 58:). Without question, Or Tzion's members have been overwhelmingly generous in donating both money and food during our Project Isaiah drive each year. 

Because of Covid-19, both Kitchen on the Street and Jewish Free Loan have been greatly impacted. There are more people in need than ever before. Please indicate below if you wish to make a monetary donation. Thank you, in advance, for your generosity in supporting these two worthy organizations.
