“Prayers from the heart open all the gates of heaven.”      Rebbe Nachman

Ohr Kodesh is proud of its tradition of providing a twice-daily minyan, a welcoming place where we come together as a community in prayer.

Our minyan is made possible by our communal efforts - all Ohr Kodesh members are assigned "Minyan duty" on a rotating basis, alphabetically by last name twice a year. Your participation makes it possible for those of us who are in mourning or observing a Yahrzeit to be able to say Kaddish, the prayer in honor of the memory of our loved ones.

If you have not been able to attend lately, please come and hear the inspirational stories of our members’ families. They bind us together in untold ways.  

Please join us. All are welcome.

Religious Practice During COVID-19 

These are difficult times and finding a way to continue to pray and connect as a community can be challenging. As we continue navigating what it looks like to move forward together, we must all be mindful that it takes time to adjust. We must continue prioritizing and be guided by our core values: Derekh Eretz (Respect and Courtesy), Chesed (Acts of Kindness) and Kehillah Kedosha (Sacred Community). 

With these principles in mind, Ohr Kodesh offers both in-person and remote access to our daily morning, afternoon and evening services. We hope that everyone in the congregation will participate in helping make sure we have a minyan each day.

Saying Kaddish 

When 10 adult Jews are gathered together through real-time video and audio connection (e.g. a Zoom call) and/or in-person, those who are in a period of mourning or observing a yahrzeit may recite the mourner’s kaddish. If 10 adult Jews are not present, a Prayer in Lieu of Kaddish is recited.

We are using Siddur Lev Shalem for weekday services. If you would like to follow along, please download and print the appropriate service. PDFs are also available in the sidebar section of this page.
