Celebrates and honors the diverse paths that have brought members home to Or Shalom.
Brings the joy and collaborative beat of music to everything, starting and finishing most meetings, services and classes with melodies or song.
Jewish, non-Jewish and “it’s complicated;” straight, gay and “it’s complicated;” single, married and “it’s complicated,” old and young and in between. All are welcome (and that’s not complicated.)
We began more than 25 years ago as a place where people could share their Jewish heritage with their children in a non-judgmental, egalitarian context. Today, our religious school is still central to our identity.
Or Shalom is committed to Tikkun Olam and has many active social action groups focusing on health care, interfaith relations, and environmental issues.
