On Saturday, May 23 at 7:30pm, Or Shalom will celebrate Shavuot with the Southside Jewish Collaborative. Join all the Rabbis for a potluck dessert, coffee, havdallah and two classes. Classes begin at 9:30pm:

Ruth: Jewish Identity, Conversion & The Jewish People

Ruth: The Spiritual Practice of Tikkun Olam/Caring for the Needy 


At 11:00pm we conclude with a service "Receiving the Torah Anew". The festival will be held at 625 Brotherhood Way. See flyer for details.

Invitation Into Leadership

You don’t have to be a Cantor to lead a Shabbat or Shivah service, and you don’t have to be a Rabbi to teach Torah.  These avenues of leadership are traditionally open to anyone, and if you like to sing or speak in groups, now may be a great opportunity for you to learn and practice these sacred ways of giving back to your community.


In May and June Rabbi Katie will be teaching two workshops about these two different dimensions of leadership.  Both series will offer opportunities to practice skills with Rabbi Katie’s guidance and work towards leadership opportunities at Or Shalom in the future.


Service Leading Series

Two Sundays, May 17 and 31, 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM


Torah Teaching Series

Three Tuesdays, June 9, 23, 30, 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM



To register please email  assistant@orshalom.org. Make sure you note which of the workshops you are registering for. You may register for Service Leading, Torah Teaching, or both!
