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.   

Or Hadash is holding hybrid in person Shabbat services on Friday night and Saturday morning. Please click here to see Or Hadash's current Covid-19 policy.

We are looking forward to having everyone join us in person, vaccinated and masks recommended, or online! Please contact the office, by email if possible, (we close at 2pm on Fridays,) if you have any questions about services.

This Friday, December 2th,  3-part Harmony starts at 6:00 pm with Rabbi Alanna leading Tot Shabbat at Or Hadash. 2nd part is a Dairy/Pareve Potluck dinner in the community room at 6:30 pm, which will be followed by an Intergenerational Family Kabbalat Shabbat service (3rd part) promptly at 7:10 pm. The service will be led by Rabbi Alanna and hosted by the Prozdor SMILE school class. The service is hybrid, join us in the sanctuary vaccinated and masks recommended, or if you are not ready to join us in person, watch us on our YouTube channel.  Remember that we have our own custom YouTube URL, find us at https://www.youtube.com/c/orhadashsynagogue

Torah study & services on Saturday, December 3rd will be led by Rabbi Alanna. Both will be hybrid and Torah Study will be held in the community room. Torah Study begins at 9:00am, with a bagel breakfast before it at 8:45am. Shabbat morning services are at 10:00am and will be held in the sanctuary along with the Bar Mitzvah of Ben Mixon. Non-members wishing to join on Zoom must contact the office by noon on Friday.

Evening Torah Study

December 26, 2022 - 7:30pm

For congregants who are interested in learning more about Torah, lay-led Torah study will take place the second and fourth Mondays every month.  The approach is entirely different than on Shabbat. It’s an enrichment program, where we’ve proceeded in depth verse by verse. A knowledge of Hebrew is helpful, but not necessary. For more information, please contact Marty Jacobs or Jeff Chebot. Open to all!

Shabbat Havurah

December 9, 2022 - 6:30pm

Join us for Shabbat Havurah - Get in on the Spirit of Shabbat at Or Hadash

It's great to take a deep breath at the end of a long week and create a separation between the week and the weekend. That's what Friday night Shabbat rituals help us do, create a Shabbat frame of mind. How we get to that frame of mind is probably different for each of us, but for many it may include some version of a relaxed evening meal with friends, lots of talking and kibitzing, and some Shabbat rituals. Please join with your fellow Or Hadashers on any (or all) of six Friday nights this year when we will come together to create a Shabbat frame of mind. Empty-nesters, school-age families, and everyone in between, are encouraged to participate.
