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 has resumed holding hybrid in person Shabbat services on Friday night and Saturday morning. 

We are looking forward to having everyone join us in person, masked and vaccinated, 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, August 12th, Kabbalat Shabbat service at OH at 7:30 pm will be lay-led by Jeff Chebot. This service is on-line only, watch us on our YouTube channel. Remember that we have our own custom url - https://www.youtube.com/c/OrHadashSynagogue.

Torah study & services on Saturday, August 13th will be lay-led by Jeff Chebot and Gerri Goldman. Both will be hybrid and will be held outdoors, weather permitting. Torah Study is at 9:00am, with a bagel breakfast before it at 8:45am. Shabbat morning services are at 10:00am. Non-members wishing to join on Zoom must contact the office by noon on Friday.

Summer Mussar

August 16, 2022 - 7:30pm

Summer Mussar (ethics based on Jewish texts) will be taking place for the 12th consecutive year at Or Hadash (on Zoom once more). 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 be studying “Morality" by the late Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. The book describes how to lead a more meaningful life through our accepting our responsibilities to others, to society, and to humanity.

Evening Torah Study

August 22, 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!

The 12 Step Havurah meeting

September 7, 2022 - 7:30pm

The Or Hadash 12 Step Havurah is meeting at 7:30 pm every first Wednesday of the month. Everyone is welcome. The power of the 12 Steps in helping anyone to cope with everyday life is the motivation for the 12 Step Havurah. Join us as we use Rami Shapiro’s book, Recovery--the sacred art: The Twelve Steps as Spiritual Practice (

Welcome Back Picnic and 3-Part Harmony

September 9, 2022 - 6:00pm

Join us again or for the first time at our welcome back picnic in September, with dairy/veggie kosher hoagies, chips, salads, etc. It's a super chill evening of dining al fresco and reconnecting after summer. It's a modified 3-part Harmony where all you have to bring is yourselves! The first part is a Tot Shabbat that is filled with silly songs, a few blessings, and a story, read by Rabbi Alanna, which usually has something to do with the next holiday in the liturgical calendar.
