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.

Friday Night Shabbat Havurah

October 27, 2017 - 6:30pm

Get in on the Spirit of Shabbat at Or Hadash

It's great to take a deep breath at the end of a long week and create a separation between the week and the weekend.  That's what Friday night Shabbat rituals help us do, create a Shabbat frame of mind.  How we get to that frame of mind is probably different for each of us, but for many it may include some version of a relaxed evening meal with friends, lots of talking and kibitzing, and some Shabbat rituals.

Gala Evening

November 4, 2017 - 7:00pm

Rabbi Josh has been a part of our congregation for thirteen years. Come celebrate with us and enjoy an evening of food, fun, laughter, and community. Entertainment, social action, free babysitting, and so much more.
