High Holidays

Congregation Or Tzion is dedicated to creating a meaningful, warm, engaging High Holiday experience for all. We offer a full schedule of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services including study sessions, meditations, and even a yoga session between services on Yom Kippur. We also offer an extensive children’s program and have a tradition of offering a community Break-the-Fast meal immediately following the sounding of the shofar. As we prepare for each High Holiday season, we publish a brochure that outlines times of services for all the seasonal holidays that we celebrate and observe as a community: Selichot, Tashlih, and the festivals of Sukkot and Simhat Torah. Please see the information section immediately below.

High Holiday Giving

Project Isaiah

Kitchen on the Street and Jewish Free Loan will be the recipients of this year’s Project Isaiahdonations. For the sixth year, we will be supporting Kitchen on the Street, an organization working to eliminate hunger in Arizona’s children by providing pre-packaged, child-friendly food for evening and/or weekend meals. We are asking you to bring gifts of non-perishable food items to our Kol Nidre service on Friday, September 29, 2017.

This year we also welcome our new partner, Jewish Free Loan, which provides interest free loans, food and gas gift cards to Jewish families in need. A list of requested donation items will be available at Rosh Hashanah services and on our website. Alternatively, donations can be made by purchasing food store gift cards or indicating a monetary donation on the High Holiday reservation form. Cash donations are always welcome.

The gift cards, cash donations, and items in our Bimah Baskets will be donated to Jewish Free Loan. All food collections will go to Kitchen on the Street.  For more information about these organizations, please visit kitchenonthestreet.org or jewishfreeloan.org.
