Or Hadash Welcomes You!

Or Hadash, a Reconstructionist congregation, is a progressive, engaging and creative community that welcomes people of all backgrounds, including interfaith families, LGBTQ individuals, as well as people of all races, ethnicities and disabilities. We strive to make Judaism meaningful through study, prayer, cultural, musical and other artistic expression. Social action and acts of tikkun olam are also important ways to engage at Or Hadash. We want all people to know that they are completely welcome and that they can quickly become an integral part of our friendly community.

Shabbat ba-Bayit (various homes)

Or Hadash celebrates Shabbat ba-Bayit - Shabbat at Home - on Friday, March 24th, Shabbat with friends done your way!

Shabbat ba-Bayit is an opportunity to get to know other families in a warm, casual setting at the home of a congregant.  Host families will provide the main course and participating families will bring a side dish or dessert to complement the dinner.  BYOB: check with your host.

There is NO cost to share Shabbat, so please check in with the host family to see how you can help out!
