Or Shalom's Mission:
Or Shalom Synagogue is a Jewish spiritual community affiliated with ALEPH: Alliance for Jewish Renewal. We are creative, egalitarian, traditional and participatory.
Davenning (praying) at Or Shalom is a rich, musical experience.
You are welcome to join us any Shabbat beginning at 10 a.m.
To find out what's going on, see the Calendar page.

Community survey deadline extended to April 18.
The Or Shalom 2014 Rabbi Search and Visioning Survey has been created to help us gather information about what our community wants, needs and should prioritize. This survey is completely anonymous and the more honest your responses are, the better we’ll be equipped to meet the needs of Or Shalom members and affiliates.
Alternatively, printed copies will be available at Or Shalom that can be filled out and returned to the office in a sealed envelope.
