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 21, 2016 - 6:30pm

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.


Shabbat in the Park has been moved to Or Hadash!

October 1, 2016 - 8:45am

Since the weather outside is very damp, and is supposed to remain so, we will be indoors at Or Hadash instead of at Robbins Park! 

We will have our regular Shabbat morning offerings at Or Hadash. There will be Torah study with breakfast beginning at 8:45.  Shabbat morning services will begin at 10 am in Rabbi Josh's office.

Love to have you join us! And look for Shabbat in the Park this spring!
