Tree of Life

 Congregation Or Chadash's Tree of Life was designed to honor or commemorate friends and loved ones .

 

Designed and created by Lester Jacobs, AIA, the  Tree features rainbow stripes, leaves and bricks.  Seven stripes of the rainbow emanate from the Or Chadash logo;   approximately one hundred leaves descend from the branches; and a the base of the tree lie the foundation bricks and four bequest stones.  The Tree of Life itself is made of wood, using various toned veneers; brass plaques will be added for each item purchased.  The Tree of Life currently hangs on the North Wall of the Michigan Room, across from the Chapel.

 

 

 

 

 

Pricing for each level is as follows:

Rainbow stripe:  $3600 per stripe (7 stripes available)

Brick:  $720 per brick (36 bricks available)

Or Chadash Blogs Elul:  Check Us Out!
For the last few years, Rabbi Phyllis Sommer has embarked on a social media project to prepare for the High Holy Days through reflection and introspection in the month of Elul. Her project, #BlogElul, has resonated with Jews across the world, and has given rise to a lot of Elul content in social media–and now it’s time for Or Chadash to join the movement! During the month of Elul, as we prepare to receive the year 5776, members of the Or Chadash community will create posts centered around the themes provided by Rabbi Sommer. This blog will collect these posts and allow us to engage in meaningful conversations via comments and perhaps even your own responses on your social media. We encourage you to participate in the worldwide conversation in order to enrich your Elul experience.
