At Or Hadash, tzedakah and giving to the community is very important to us.
Please join us for our 12th Annual Charity Golf Tournamentfor Safehaven on Thursday, June 12th at Wooden Sticks in Uxbridge to help us raise funds for Safehaven, www.safehavenproj.org, a charity that provides residential and respite care to families who have children with multiple disabilities and complex medical needs. Safehaven has non-institutional homes in Aurora, Woodbridge, North York, Etobicoke and Toronto.
Come for golf (it's best ball), lunch and dinner. Or just come for dinner and our awesome silent auction. Either way, you will have fun and you will be donating to a good cause.
Many people think of the synagogue as a building made of bricks but it so much more than that. Our tradition teaches that the synagogue is a Beit T'fillah, (house of prayer), a Beit Midrash (house of study), and Beit Knesset, (house of community). More than that, the synagogue is all about people.
We invite you to come explore the many facets that make Or Hadash a vibrant, warm and welcoming community. On Shabbat we sing, pray and study together in an inclusive, egalitarian setting. Our monthly Shabbat pot-luck dinners are informal and child-friendly. Our holiday parties are for all ages and our Sukkot hayride is legendary.
We encourage life-long learning through our religious school program for children, Bar and Bat-Mitzvah, regular Torah study for adults, and ongoing adult education. We open our doors and take part in the greater community by performing acts of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), working in support of community organizations and taking part in interfaith events.
We are all looking for ways to enhance our Jewish life. Each of us has our own needs and our unique abilities. Or Hadash is a place where you will find that community quickly becomes family, and the spiritual meaning of life deepens. We invite you to share our mutual love of Judaism, enhance your spiritual life and experience our mishpacha (family). We look forward to welcoming you.
