Sanctuary Banner Campaign

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - 12:00pm to Friday, September 27, 2019 - 5:30pm

For the first time in decades (if ever), our High Holy Days services will be held in our home location rather than having to schlep all our stuff to a separate venue! We are so blessed that our new location, Hillsdale Community Church (HCC) has a sanctuary large enough for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur!

In order to create a warm Jewish environment for our services, we have commissioned two banners (and the associated hardware) that will cover the cross on the altar (Bima) and a large stained glass cross 30 feet above the sanctuary entrance. After our services, we’ll remove the banners so the crosses will be visible during HCC’s worship services. Throughout P’nai Or’s residency at HCC, when we hold our services in the sanctuary, we’ll erect the banners to facilitate Jewish worship in this beautiful sacred space.

The cost to produce the banners and install them will run close to $4000, including construction and labor.

We are asking your help in meeting this expense!

Your contribution to the Sanctuary Banner Campaign will ensure that our lovely sanctuary is ready for us in September when we welcome the Jewish New Year 5780.
