Legacy Circle

The Board of Or Chadash is proud to announce the implementation of our temple’s Legacy Program that was launched on Mitzvah Day.

A Legacy gift symbolizes the true meaning of L’dor V’dor, passing on traditions from one generation to the next. To be part of the Legacy Program no upfront funds are needed, only your intention to leave a future gift of any amount which can be changed at your discretion any time in the future.

As part of the Legacy Program you will be honored as part of the Legacy Circle and have the opportunity to create your own page in the Book of Life in both hard copy and digital versions. Our response so far has been tremendous with 16 congregants joining the Legacy Program.

Further information about the Legacy Program and the Book of Life are available online:

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!
