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.

Evening Torah Study

October 10, 2022 - 7:30pm

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!
