Congregation Or Ami welcomes the new Jewish year 5777 with High Holy Day services at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza in the Fred Kavli Theatre, led by Rabbi Paul Kipnes, Cantor Doug Cotler, and Rabbi Julia Weisz.
LOCATION CHANGE: All Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur Services will be at the Kavli Theatre, except: Both Yom Kippur Family (3:00 pm) and Neilah (4:45 pm) services will be at Congregation Or Ami.
TIME CHANGE: Yizkor Memorial service will be on Yom Kippur MORNING (about 12:15 pm) at the conclusion of the morning service.
PARTNERSHIP RENEWAL: To receive the tickets you are entitled to as part of the Or Ami community, you need to renew your partnership with the congregation, pay necessary financial commitments, and order your High Holy Day tickets no later than September 2, 2016.
ORDERING TICKETS: The number of Complimentary Tickets are determined by your partnership level. * In today's heightened security environment, no one will be admitted without a ticket, and we must collect names and contact information for all worshippers.
EXTENDED FAMILY TICKETS: Congregants may purchase additional extended family tickets. All tickets will be color coded and checked at the door.
FRIENDS' TICKETS: We ask that you encourage friends to purchase tickets with the non-congregant order form. Please do not purchase for non-congregant friends or aquaintances. Share only the additional tickets received as a Sustainer or Builder. Income from non-congregant ticket purchases significantly defrays the costs of renting the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Non-congregant friends or acquaintances may purchase tickets using this link.
PICK UP TICKETS: For Yom Kippur, please pick up tickets at WILL CALL 30 minutes before services begin. There WILL be a line. Please be patient (so you don't have more things to ask for forgiveness for during the service.)
PRAYERBOOKS: Or Ami uses the machzor (prayerbook) Gates of Light. Unfortunately, we are unable to loan High Holy Day Machzor (prayer books). Please purchase copies of the prayerbook using this form.
VOLUNTEER: Can you devote a few hours to help create a meaningful experience for the whole community? Look at volunteer opportunities and sign up.
Thank you for making High Holy Days 5777 a meaningful and enriching experience for all.
