Or Shalom holds warm and inviting Friday night Shabbat services with our rabbi and cantorial soloist. Worship begins at 7:30 p.m., on most Fridays (7:00 p.m. in the summer months) and use the Reform prayer book, Mishkan T'filah. Please check our calendar or contact the office to confirm worship times.
Celebrate your birthday, anniversary or other special event at our monthly Simchat Shabbatot.
6:00 p.m. Young Children's Service
Join our youngest worshipers and their extended families for a special service specifically geared toward young children. Follow along using our age-appropriate prayer booklet and sing along with Rabbi Margolis. During this service, we recognize all of the children who are celebrating birthdays throughout the month. The rabbi shares a favorite story as the kids come up to the bimah to sit. Often, we are treated to an original "Baa-aaby" story. The children look forward to this low-key, special time with the rabbi. The Young Children's service typically begins at 6:00 p.m., and lasts about 40 minutes.
7:30 p.m. Adult Service and Discussion
Guest speakers or discussions led by Rabbi Margolis are featured at these monthly services in addition to recognizing birthdays and other milestones.
Hebrew School Grade-Level Shabbat Services
Several of our Shabbat services throughout the year are led by our Hebrew school students. This is a wonderful opportunity for families of students in the same grade to welcome Shabbat together. Our students look forward to their turn on the bimah as they become more and more familiar with the prayers. Students also enjoy bringing their favorite sweets to share at the Oneg table on these special Shabbat evenings.
