Shalom and Welcome to Or Hadash!

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.
