Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions


There is no power at Or Hadash as of 6:00 pm on Monday, November 11. We will update the website as information is available. Please call 215-356-2030 if you have an emergency. Thank you!  

Remember to check here anytime you are not sure if we are open or not.


One way to get involved at Or Hadash is to join a havurah.

Havurah (plural: havurot) is the Hebrew word for “fellowship.” Membership in a havurah allows members to experience Jewish community on a more intimate scale within the larger Or Hadash community.  In a small, self-directed group, many aspects of Jewish life, including study, worship, celebration of holidays, and social action can be enjoyed.  A havurah is a mini-community that provides a rich Jewish experience in a more intimate social setting.

PS - Don't see something you like?  Have any idea for a new havurah?  Take action and make it happen - just grab a few folks and email Nick or Stefie to let them know what you are up to!
