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.

Healing Service

February 7, 2017 - 7:00pm

Healing services are held 4-5 times each year on select Tuesday evenings at 7 pm in the Rabbi's Study. This service is intended for those who are seeking physical or emotional healing for themselves or someone they care about. We share inspirational and comforting readings and music and enjoy the warmth and support of our community. The service usually lasts about an hour and is open to all, no RSVP needed. Rabbi Vivian will be leading the January 10th service.
