We are Mitzvah Workers. Sometimes we are visible helping hands and hearts, sometimes behind the scenes. Although always helping others, we are impacting our own spiritual sensitivity and growth.
We provide moral support, food, and transportation for those experiencing life cycle transitions. We visit hospitals and nursing homes. We also provide and help to coordinate and serve the meal of condolence. In instances where long-term care is required, we connect with Interfaith Community Services (ICS) to provide services beyond our membership capabilities or expertise. We offer retreats and awareness opportunities to the congregation. More
This program is designed for preschool kindergarten children ages 3-5 years old. The group meets every Sunday for Jewish learning, storytelling, music, crafts, and more. More
The Ritual Committee is a Bylaws-required committee of congregants who help Clergy regarding elements of worship.
The committee reviews changes in ritual and worship-related issues raised by Clergy, and is also writing and reviewing a new congregational prayer book. Meetings are held monthly.
Congregation Or Chadash’s Social Justice and Action Committee pursues the Jewish tenets of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness). There are two basic facets to what we do. First is to partner with existing organizations to help the needy in our community and second is to inform our congregants of important issues that can influence life in Arizona. Membership on the committee is open to all members of the congregation. Meetings are held on the second Monday of the month at 1:30 p.m. More
This is a bylaws-mandated committee to oversee all the financial obligations of Or Chadash. The finance committee oversees adherence to the current fiscal year budget and assists with the formulation of following fiscal year. The finance committee also assists with the long term strategic financial planning of the congregation as well. The congregation treasurer chairs the finance committee and selects its members.
The committee is in charge of selling burial plots in the Or Chadash section of Evergreen Cemetery. Membership is open to any congregant of Or Chadash. No regular meetings. The committee meets as needed.
