Congregation Or Chadash is a warm and welcoming community where all can experience God. Our mission reflects a commitment to our values.
Our Mission – We have joined together to create a religious community. We take seriously the spiritual dimensions of our tradition. We are committed to a synagogue that offers weekly services, Hebrew instruction, family study, holiday celebrations and life cycle events. This is being accomplished by continuous discussion and the creativity and commitment of the participants.

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