Important Messages from OH President and Rabbi


Following up on the email announcement we sent yesterday afternoon, Governor Wolf has announced a COVID-19 mitigation effort for Montgomery County to reduce the spread of the virus. In compliance with the Wolf Administration’s guidance, Or Hadash will cancel all in-person group meetings, events and school activities at least for the next 14 days.

Groups, committees and others who typically plan to meet at Or Hadash during this time should consider meeting virtually rather than in person; using Zoom, Skype or some other web platform.

Please stay tuned as we are coming up with a variety of ways to support each other and celebrate Shabbat together. To quote our Reconstructionist colleague in Seattle, Rabbi David Basior, “we cancel events – not community.” Please watch your email and phones over the next several days for contact from our wonderful Chesed (caring committee) Co-Chairs, Carolyn Savitzky and Edith Lane. And we also encourage you to join our public Facebook page if you haven't already done so: as well as our member’s only space:, as they will also be methods of disseminating information in the coming weeks.
