B’nai Or Montreal is thrilled to be holding our services once again in the downstairs community space at Dorshei Emet Reconstructionist Congregation, 18 Cleve Road, Hampstead H3X 1A6. We are also extremely happy to offer an all-inclusive High Holiday pass to B’nai Or members for $36 per person. This amount includes all services. (There is no discount if you attend only one service.) There is no charge for a pass for children under 12, but each child must have a pass in order to enter the building. Dorshei Emet requires that, for security purposes, each individual (including children) who attends any services must have their own High Holiday pass. See attached poster for more information.
B’nai Or membership forms for 2016-2017 are attached to this email. Hard copies will also be available at our Friday night services. Please return this form with your payment to Reb Sherril.
