Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions

Joining Or Hadash

Now is the Time to Join Or Hadash!
If you are looking for a haimish ("down to earth"), inclusive community with a dynamic rabbi, a fun & engaging religious school, meaningful, contemporary services, intellectually stimulating adult programming and an embrace of tikkun olam (social justice), Or Hadash is the place for you!
To welcome new members to OH, we are offering a discount of 50% off your dues for your first year of membership!
  • All necessary forms for membership can be found on the Membership Forms page.
  • Please consult the New Member Dues Commitment form at the bottom of that page for pricing.

Reconstructionist Judaism often cites “belonging” to the Jewish people -- not “believing” or "behaving" -- as the key to modern Jewish life. At Or Hadash, we value each individual and the contributions that they bring to the community. We welcome anyone that wants to be part of the Or Hadash community regardless of their personal financial circumstances.

For those with school-aged children, we’re also offering a FREE first year of Gan (Pre-K & K) at our SMILE religious school!

If you have any questions about membership, please feel free to contact our membership chair Gillian Szymanski or our Synagogue Administrator at 215-283-0276. 
  • Our SMILLE school director, Rabbi Erin Hirsh, would also be happy to discuss our SMILE religious school program with you.
