Our Story 

Get Involved 

Join Us For Shabbat

  • 5782 High Holy Days Appeal

    Or Chadash stands as a place where all are welcome. Together, we instill and foster Jewish identity and community, perpetuate Judaism by being a community of lifelong learners, and enhance the quality of life through the practice of Torah, Worship, Acts of Loving Kindness, and Tikkun Olam.(more…)

  • Drash Program

    Take the opportunity to dig deeper!

    Each week, a member of our combined congregation reads his or her original commentary on the Torah portion of the week.  You, too, can have the honor of writing a commentary (drash) on the Torah portion of the week. (more…)

  • Update on our Work Together

    Hello Congregants,

    Following our vote to approve a Plan of Consolidation for Or Chadash & Temple Emanu-El, we learned that both Or Chadash and Temple Emanu-El were eligible to apply for the second round of the federal Payroll Protection Program (PPP) which (if successful) would provide us with funds for our personnel costs. Because the application requires documentation of the prior year’s financial situation and how an organization has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Kol Ami would not be eligible.


  • COVID-19 Vaccine Information Session

    Thank you to Dr. Beth Jacobs for a very informative session last Saturday. You can view the recording here.

  • Announcing the Name for our Proposed New Synagogue

    And the winner is…

    Thanks to the creative energy and widespread participation of our members, we are pleased to announce the name of the proposed new synagogue:
    Kol Ami
    “All of My People”
    Building on the Legacies of Temple Emanu-El (1910) and Congregation Or Chadash (1995).
