  • Or Chadash Sisterhood Presents: 
    Sunday Morning Trail Walks and Coffee Talks
    Want to meet some new people, or catch up with friends you only see in the hallways of OC or while waiting to pick up your children? Join us monthly for either a quick walk, and/or a quick coffee klatch!  We never seem to have time to get together, so a nice walk and talk during Hebrew school on Sundays seemed to be just the thing! We will meet at the front door of Or Chadash at 10:15 AM and take a 30 minute walk up Foothill Road. We will return to OC at 10:45 AM for coffee and treats. IF you prefer not to walk, meet us for coffee at 10:45 AM. We hope to see some new and familiar faces. Any questions, please contact Lisa Tauscher (tauscher3@gmail.com) or Debbie Weiss (deb1508@aol.com). 

    Everyone should ask at least ONE other person you know to join us!

    Please see Upcoming at Or Chadash for our schedule.

  • 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!
