"Beyteynu-Our Home"

Have You Heard? We're Moving to a New Home!

Congregation Or Tzion is moving to its 21,230 sq. ft. new home in August 2017. We have initiated a Capital Campaign designed to provide an opportunity for everyone to participate with gifts of all sizes. With your help - together - we can make a sanctuary and more, where holiness will dwell among us and we we can dwell together as a community for years to come.For DETAILS about the new location, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

There are Many Other Ways to Support Or Tzion...

Whether you volunteer your time and talent, or make a charitable financial contribution, you help us realize the vision and full potential of Congregation Or Tzion – a joyous, participatory congregation.

We are grateful for your support.

Fundraising Activities:

There are many ways to support Congregation Or Tzion beyond generous charitable donations. Fundraising is one of them. Raising funds beyond charitable giving allows the congregation to respond to the needs of our growing and extremely busy community. Opportunities range from the Amazon Associates program and eScrip to restaurant nights and our annual Martini Night. For more information, please continue reading.

Amazon Associates:
It’s as simple as clicking on the Amazon logo at the bottom of the homepage or click here. You’ll quickly be redirected to Amazon, where a percentage of your purchases might qualify to give money back to Congregation Or Tzion. Use the link every time you shop on Amazon!

Restaurant Nights:
Local restaurants support our community by agreeing to give back a percentage of a day or evening’s proceeds to Or Tzion, so be sure to check your eBulletin for the next dine-in and/or dine-out.

Scholar-in-Residence Weekend: This is one of Congregation Or Tzion’s most significant fundraising events of the year. As an example, in February 2014, we were honored to welcome Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson for a weekend of inspiration, learning and discussion. In February 2016, musical artist Craig Taubman was our Artist-in-Residence, enhancing our Shabbat services and entertaining the community at a Saturday evening concert.

Martini Night:
This annual event is held in the spring. It’s an evening of fun where congregants come together to celebrate and raise funds for the congregation. This year, our Martini Night has evolved to become “Martini Masquerade,” a unique "take" on this always popular event.

Mishloach Manot:
Purim Basket Fundraiser: In keeping with the tradition of Purim, you will be able to order misloah manot baskets for your friends and relatives.

Cookbooks:
A few years ago, our predecessor congregation, Or Chadash, created a cookbook! Get your very own copy with "hamish" recipes, in the office for $20.
