New Daily Prayerbook! Dedication Opportunity!

If you have attended the daily minyan at Ohr Kodesh recently – either in the morning or the evening – you will have noticed that we now are using a new prayerbook – The Siddur Sim Shalom for Weekdays. This handsome maroon and gray siddur is published by the Rabbinical Assembly and the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. It has ample translations and transliteration of many prayers, to facilitate participation by daveners, as well as commentary and “choreography” (that is, instructions when to rise, sit, bow, etc.). The decision to adopt this new Conservative Movement prayerbook was made after a study of various possible alternatives. The Religious Activities Committee recommended, and the Ohr Kodesh Board of Directors approved, the choice of this siddur as representing the best alternative for Ohr Kodesh and its members. It is user friendly, and we hope it will prompt thoughtful consideration and discussion of the liturgy.

Congregants have an opportunity to dedicate up to four of the new siddurim, at a contribution of $36 per book. Please click HERE or  contact Executive Director Jerry Kiewe (jkiewe [at] ohrkodesh [dot] org or 240-450-3486), or Tami Lautman (tlautman [at] ohrkodesh [dot] org or 301-589-3880 x 220),
