Rosh Hashanah 5778 with Or Shalom

Or Shalom staff and volunteers have been busy preparing for this fall’s programs for adults, youth, and children.  If you are an Or Shalom member or contributor, you can expect a package delivered to your home in the next week or so, with your seating cards, Keren Or, and the brochures below (so you don’t need to print these electronic versions).

We are all very excited about this year’s programs, events, and learning opportunities, and encourage you to find the events that inspire you and your family, and mark them in your calendars. Remember you can always check the Or Shalom Calendar for upcoming events.

May this next year 5778 be one of peace and happiness for you, for your family, and for the whole world.

Striving for Justice

Thank you to all those who took various initiatives to stand up against senseless hatred this past weekend. We were glad to hear that many of you set an intention as you lit Shabbat candles, to see so many praying for love, compassion, grace, and peace in shul, and to see so many Or Shalom faces praying with their feet at City Hall. We take comfort in the knowledge that our community will continue, each day, to stand for justice in our world.

B’yachad Program for B’nei Mitzvah Students – REGISTER TODAY!

What is B’yachad?

B’yachad is Or Shalom’s Bar/Bat/Simchat Mitzvah program with interactive study for youth and their parents taught by singer-songwriter Harriet Frost with Rabbi Hannah Dresner. At Or Shalom, Bar/Bat/Simchat Mitzvah preparation begins a year or more before our youth are called to the Torah for their first Aliyah. Ours is an intergenerational, multi-modality class meeting on Sunday afternoons during the school year. In addition to these sessions families are committed to participating in a Shabbat service or holiday celebration at Or Shalom each month. Our program will include a social action initiative.

Sunday classes take place from 3-5pm.
