Ohr Shalom ( "Light of Peace" ) is a Jewish Congregation that is responsive to its members and to the community.  While diverse, we adhere to the religious principles of modern Reform Judaism.  We recognize the Torah as our lifelong process of traditions.  We are a Bet Tefilah - House of Worship Bet Ha-Midrash - House of Study Bet Ha-Knesset - House of Assembly We exist to provide our members a path to follow on their journey: to lifelong Jewish education, to the worship of God through prayer and observance, to the pursuit of justice, peace, and deeds of lovingkindness, and  to meeting our responsibilities to our community, to our nation, and to our world.  
From the celebration of new life to the saying of Kaddish, Ohr Shalom is your spiritual family for honoring life cycle events as well as the Jewish holy days.  Our members, lay leaders and student rabbi assist in the preparation and celebration of Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Confirmations, brit and baby namings, and sitting shiva. During the year, you will enjoy participating in our ritual services, including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah, Purim, Passover and other events which honor and celebrate the history of our people.
