About Or Shalom

 

About Or Shalom

We celebrate and honor the diverse paths that have brought our members home to Or Shalom.

We bring the joy and collaborative beat of music to everything we do, starting and finishing most meetings, services and classes with melodies or song.

We are Jewish, non-Jewish and “it’s complicated;” straight, gay and “it’s complicated;” single, married and “it’s complicated,” old and young and in between. All are welcome.

We began 25 years ago as a place where people could share their Jewish heritage with their children in a non-judgmental, egalitarian context. Today, our religious school is still central to our identity.

We are a Jewish Reconstructionist community, tasked with making Judaism relevant to our times while respecting the traditions of our ancestors. As Reconstructionists like to say, "The past gets a vote, not a veto."
