Or Shalom is a home for those who seek a caring, supportive, engaging community grounded in Jewish values and contemporary, lively inquiry. Our membership reflects our founding principles: We honor and celebrate, not just accept, our diverse backgrounds. Many Or Shalom households are interfaith and/or biracial. We welcome Jews and non-Jews, whether or not you've had a Jewish education or speak Hebrew.
Or Shalom is a safe Jewish place for questioning and skepticism. We talk about our differences: our belief in God or our atheism; our complex relationship to Israel.
Whatever your background, we invite you to find your Jewish home at Or Shalom.
