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.
Minyan Hadash is held daily at 8:15 am (except Saturdays) via Zoom. Rotating leaders, including Rabbi Alanna. Link is in Today at OH.
SPIRITUAL GROWTH HAVURAH - We meet monthly to discover Rabbi Rami Shapiro’s hope-filled approach to spiritual and personal growth. He uniquely interprets the 12 Steps to speak to everyone seeking a freer and more God-centered life. Drawing on the insight and practices of Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam, Rabbi Shapiro’s wisdom helps us move more deeply into our own spirituality.
The book club will next be reading The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store by National Book Award winner James McBride for Monday night, December 11th. His new novel takes place in Pottstown, Pa, in a dilapidated neighborhood where immigrant Jews and African Americans lived side by side and shared ambitions and sorrows.
For congregants who are interested in learning more about Torah, lay-led Torah study will take place the second and fourth Mondays every month. The approach is entirely different than on Shabbat. It’s an enrichment program, where we’ve proceeded in depth verse by verse. A knowledge of Hebrew is helpful, but not necessary. For more information, please contact Marty Jacobs or Jeff Chebot. Open to all!
And now there is Torah Study via Zoom!
The first meeting of the Or Hadash Singing Circle was at Or Hadash in the sanctuary on Wednesday, February 8th at 7:00pm. If you need a ride please let us know. Future meetings will be monthly on the second Wednesday of the month.
Contacts are Joe Adler and Rabbi Alanna.
