Shabbat at the Gazebo – Friday, September 6, 7:00 pm

Join us as we hold our annual outdoor Friday night Shabbat Service in the Gazebo at High Plains Community Center!  Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus will bring his guitar and lead us in a joyful “sing-along” service.  This is a wonderful opportunity to introduce prospective members to Or Shalom and to Rabbi Wainhaus.  Approximately 100 people attend this popular Service.  Some chairs are provided, but we encourage you to bring your own lawn chair.  (Note the grounds and pavilion will be available prior to the event, if you would like to bring a picnic.)  We will also be recognizing our new members during the Service.  We look forward to seeing everyone!  In addition, we will honor our past President, Marc Franzman.

Community Yizkor

Congregation Or Shalom, the only Conservative synagogue in Orange, is offering all non-members an opportunity to come to a free community-wide Yizkor Memorial Service on Yom Kippur Day (October 9, 2019) at 4:00 PM.  This service, which will last under an hour, is open to the public without any membership obligation.  The Service will be led by the synagogue’s Ritual Committee Chair, Robert Spaulding and his wife Tova Clayman.
