The Family Service at 7:00 pm will be led by Barbara Weisman with Dave Levinson on guitar, live-streamed via YouTube. 


Torah study & services will be lay-led by Jeff Chebot this Saturday morning from 9:00 to 11:00 am via Zoom.

One way to get involved at Or Hadash is to join a havurah.

Havurah (plural: havurot) is the Hebrew word for “fellowship.” Membership in a havurah allows members to experience Jewish community on a more intimate scale within the larger Or Hadash community.  In a small, self-directed group, many aspects of Jewish life, including study, worship, celebration of holidays, and social action can be enjoyed.  A havurah is a mini-community that provides a rich Jewish experience in a more intimate social setting.
