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.
