News and Events
The High Holidays bring a fresh start to a new year, a time for celebration and contemplation. This year, we approach the holidays in a new way. In order to be more inclusive, we will not be selling Tishrei memberships or family tickets; we simply ask that you RSVP ahead of time so we can ensure we have adequate seating. Reservations must be made online for friends, family, and guests; however, members do not need to make reservations for themselves.
We will not be printing and mailing tickets this year, though members will receive a packet with the logistics. We strongly encourage members to make reservations for friends and family early, as we anticipate a higher number of reservations this year. Space is limited. Please check in at the reception table.

Ron Solomon, co-author of “BROKEN!,” will kick off Tuesdays with Morim by discussing and signing BROKEN!, which is based on the first-hand experiences of a high-level military intelligence officer who became a whistleblower. This fictional thriller, written with the consultation of Michael Kearns, retired Air Force captain, focuses on men and women caught in the crossfire of war, terror, drones, post-traumatic stress and a for-profit surveillance state. Solomon is a successful network television writer and Evergreen resident. The event is free and open to the public.
