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.

Summer Mussar

August 20, 2019 - 7:00pm

Summer Mussar will be taking place for the ninth consecutive year at Or Hadash. These biweekly sessions are intended to be both maintenance for ongoing Mussar students as well as an introduction to Mussar for new students. This summer we will again be studying Alan Morinis’ “With Heart in Mind,” a book which describes many methods for changing our behavior to reflect a more mindful consideration of others. For those who wish to read ahead, we will start with Chapter 29 where we left off last summer and cover two chapters each class.
