Upcoming at Or Chadash

Dear Members of Or Chadash,
We hope to see you for our Summer events. Here are some helpful terms to explain our different Shabbat Worship formats over the summer.
Kabbalat Shabbat Services are brief (30-minute) services to welcome the Sabbath and include singing, Mi Shebeirach (healing Prayer) and Kaddish.
Shabbat Experiences begin with song, the blessings for candles, Kiddush and Motzi, and conclude with a program, discussion, film or special dinner event.

Be sure to check out our upcoming Summer FAQs on the website -- including info about welcoming casual attire, when Kaddish names are recited, why we have early services and how you can celebrate Shabbat at home when we do not have services at OC.

College Student Outreach

As fall approaches, the Student Outreach Program of Or Chadash is about to swing into full gear. The purpose of this program is to maintain a Jewish connection for our students away from home at preparatory, college or graduate schools. Students will be mailed a treat symbolic for some of the Jewish holidays. The Rabbi includes a delightful letter reminding students of the significance of the occasion. Students tell us each year how much they look forward to these packages and how comforting it is to know that they are still important to our Or Chadash Family.

We create a new “Student Address List” each year, so all interested parents should send in their child’s address for the coming year as soon as possible. You must submit this each year, even if there has not been a change. You will notice that there is space for an email address. 

Don’t let your child miss out on the first mailing!
