Join us for Sukkot and Simchat Torah

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services were a delight to behold as the community came together to celebrate the Days of Awe. We’ve posted online three messages delivered by our members on Rosh Hashanah: Malchuyot, Zichronot, Shofarot. We invite you to read them and share these words among friends and family.

We carry forward for Sukkot and Simchat Torah and hope to see you at Or Shalom in East Vancouver on Sept. 23, Sept. 30, and Oct. 1.

Shana Tova from Or Shalom

We hope the new year brings you many sweet moments with your family and friends, and that some of those moments happen here at Or Shalom.

If you’re looking for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, please join us at the JCC. Join us for Tashlich on Monday, Sept. 10 at 4 p.m. at Queen Elizabeth Park. And be sure to read the Rosh Hashanah 5779 edition of the Keren Or newsletter for Rabbi Hannah’s new year’s message and more stories from members.











We can’t wait to see you later this month in Vancouver for Sukkot during which we will kick off our kids program, Shabbat Sheli, and B’Nei Mitzvah program, B’yachad. The whole community is invited to contribute to the stone soup. We’ll also have a young adult night in the sukkah with craft beer and cider.
