New Year's Greetings 5782

Deadline to send - Friday, July 30

At Congregation Ohr Shalom-SJCC we have developed the custom of sending NEW YEARS GREETINGS to wish our friends and fellow congregants a happy and healthy new year.

We hope you will join us again this year in spreading greetings and warm wishes for 5782.


 The NEW YEARS GREETINGS consist of two parts:


1) PART 1 is an alphabetical listing of the names of those contributors desiring only this form of greeting. The charge for the names submitted is $29.00.

2) PART 2 is for those who wish to express personalized greetings. In this part you can express your greeting in your own words (Hebrew or English). The charge for a personalized listing is a minimum of $38.00. Please note that Hebrew listings can only be repeated from previous years due to digital constraints this year. Maximum is 20 words.

3) For listing in both parts, the charge is $65.00. This represents a savings over the cost of the parts individually.


Part 1 is free for Alternative Dues Members.  Parts 1 and 2 are free for Visionaries.


The New Years greetings booklet will be distributed during the week prior to Rosh Hashanah via email.
