So much of the holiday is about what we do together: seeing old friends, building tighter networks, sharing meals, singing. The OKC community has a long and powerful history of showing up for each other in many different ways, and that's something we won't let a little pandemic stop!
Send a little bit of love this holiday season! OKC's high holiday greetings are a great way to add a personal touch and a virtual hug to someone in our community. Donations of $15 per name are requested. Submit your order here.
Now seeking your reflections and sentiments associated with the High Holidays for a community sharing experience. The possible content is limitless: A happy memory of a particular Rosh Hashanah from years past; an insight or personal reaction to a section of the liturgy; or a hope that animates your own thinking about the High Holiday season.
