Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions

Open Houses and Scheduling a Visit

We believe that the best way to decide if you would like to join our congregation is to attend services and special programs, speak to members and read more detailed information about our congregation and the Reconstructionist Movement. 

Open Houses

Our services are always open to the public.  However, in May, June and September we designate certain Friday evening and Saturday morning services as open house events, where we especially welcome prospective members who would like to get a "taste" of Or Hadash. 

Sunday morning school open houses are an opportunity to speak to our Education Director, learn about our curriculum and activities, and see our school in action.  We encourage families considering enrolling their children in the school to attend one of the school open houses in the spring or fall.

See the calendar for information on upcoming open house events.

Scheduling a Visit

Our synagogue office is usually open Monday 9 AM to 5 PM, Tuesday 9 AM to 6 PM, Thursday 9 AM to 5 PM, and Fridays 9 AM to 2 PM.  Office hours on Wednesday are variable.  If you would like to arrange a visit to see our facility, please call our Synagogue Administrator in advance, at 215-283-0276 or send an e-mail to  We look forward to meeting you!
