Jewish Living

We treasure Ohr Kodesh as a rich resource lighting our path and guiding our daily actions. It motivates us to bring Jewish learning to life in the world around us and to act in pursuit of Tikkun Olam (perfecting the world) and K'lal Yisrael (unity of the Jewish people).

Ohr Kodesh is a congregation that enjoys learning and worshipping together. Daily minyanim are a staple and Shabbat and Jewish holidays provide many opportunities for the community to gather together for special programming. Men and women are full participants in services and all members of the family are included.

Staff and various committees provide support for Jewish living amongst our members, ranging from support at ever critical life cycle events to fostering connections with the State of Israel. Ohr Kodesh also sponsors and supports a seemingly endless array of service projects including collections of food, clothing, school supplies, etc., blood drives, delivery of food to needy individuals in the community and strives to encourage environmental awareness and social responsibility.
