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.
Or Hadash is offering an Antiracism Study Group for congregants and friends (yes, non-congregants can participate) focused on Ibram X. Kendi's book How to be an Antiracist. Now more than ever, it is important to educate ourselves on this very important and timely topic so that we can be better allies and activists for racial equality, and doing it in community can enrich the experience. The group will meet every two weeks and focus on two chapters at each meeting.
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!
The 12 Step Havurah will start again on October 7th, 2020. We will meet at 7:30 pm every first Wednesday of the month. Join us as we use Rami Shapiro’s book, Recovery--the sacred art: The Twelve Steps as Spiritual Practice to dive deeply into each step throughout the year.
If you have any questions or would like to join the Havurah, please contact Eileen Jaffe.
Kristallnacht Commemoration at 10:30 am-12 noon on the Or Hadash YouTube channel. Holocaust survivor Ronnie Breslow will speak of her experience of Kristallnacht and her journey aboard the St Louis. Save the date and time.
