You are Welcome for the High Holy Days

Not a member of TBI? You are welcome to join us for any of our High Holy Days services. For planning and security purposes, please let us know you will be attending by registering below.

Guests / Non-Members – Welcome!

We are delighted that you are considering joining us for the upcoming High Holy Days. In addition to celebrating and observing these special holidays, people often use these services as a way to get acquainted with our congregation and community. We welcome you to do so.

Our members, who support our Temple year round, also absorb the overwhelming cost of our High Holy Day services (equipment rental, sound techs, security, etc.). To help defray some costs, we ask non-members who are able to do so to contribute by making a donation. We do not want finances to stand in the way of anyone joining us for services or from participating in our community. Please contact the Temple office (541-485-7218) if you have any questions or concerns about attending services.

  • Your High Holy Day contribution may be applied towards TBI membership if you decide to join before the end of Tishrei (October 9, 2018)
  • Contributions for High Holy Days are tax-deductible and non-refundable.
  • Full time college/grad students and actively military personnel are invited to attend at no charge.
  • Reciprocity – If you are a current member at another Reconstructionist synagogue you may attend our services at no charge. Please submit a letter on letterhead from your congregation to info@tbieugene.org stating that you are a member in good standing.

Holiday Meals

We endeavor to ensure everyone who wants to spend Rosh Hashana meals in community has the opportunity to do so. We are matching people looking for a warm and welcoming holiday lunch or dinner table with people eager to fulfill the mitzvah of Hachnasat Orchim (welcoming guests). Please sign up here by the end of the day on Monday, September 4th to sign up as a host or a guest. Or, consider signing up to host at one meal and be a guest at another! This opportunity is open to current TBI members as well as to those exploring the possibility of membership with TBI.


Free childcare is available for children ages 3-8 for select services. Pre-registration is requested so that we can be sure to have enough care givers.
