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, July 1st, there will be NO Kabbalat Shabbat service at OH, due to our summer schedule. Our summer schedule of every other Friday night is actually two off weeks in June, July & August and concludes with no services on Labor Day weekend. The dates of Friday nights with no services at OH are June 3 & 17, July 1 & 15, August 5 & 19 and September 2. There is a service next Friday.

Torah study & services on Saturday, July 2nd will be led by Rabbi Alanna. 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.

Evening Torah Study

July 25, 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!

Mahjong

July 5, 2022 - 7:30pm

Mahjong is in-person, vaccinated and masked in the community room at OH!

Group is open to experienced players and new players. We try to play twice a month, alternating between Mondays and Tuesdays. Please bring your 2022 card.

For more information or to RSVP contact Karen Stranz.

Summer Mussar

July 5, 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.

The 12 Step Havurah meeting

July 6, 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 (
