Torah Scribe Project
June 9th & 10th and
February 16th & 17th
Congregation Or Chadash, as part of our Sanctuary improvement plans, will be purchasing a long needed new Torah. We have the once in the lifetime opportunity to participate in the writing of this sacred object. We have contracted with a scribe who will come to Or Chadash to help our member households write individual letters in the Torah. Learn more about writing a Torah! Help make our new Torah by fulfilling the 613th commandment! Please take advantage! The scribe will be here June 9 & 10, 2013 and February 16 & 17, 2014 with lots of time slots to choose. Please click here to sign up http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0545A4AB2B0-orchadash. "Torah 5773" is the access code.

As we prepare to start our new fiscal year on June 1, 2013, We would like to invite you to join our current and incoming Board for our Annual Congregational Meeting. The primary purposes of the annual meeting are to elect our Board of Directors candidates, to vote on our proposed budget and to share with you our major plans for the coming year.
Congregation Or Chadash Singers
AHH... Spring is in the air, baseball season is starting up, pollen is starting to make us sneeze, and the first thing everyone is thinking about is...
High Holy Days Choir Rehearsal!
O.K., maybe not, but this year the High Holy days occur early in the solar calendar, around Labor Day...so we need to get cracking on rehearsals and will be starting in mid-July!
Contact Ron Isaacson or Stephanie Weishaar if you are interested in joining!
Or Chadash Needs your help! We are looking to fill several volunteer roles. We need a volunteer to keep our website updated. This role is vital as the website is often the first place prospective members go to check us out. We are also looking for people to volunteer as oneg helpers one Friday a month. This person helps the oneg families set up. Please know that beginning in August, the first Friday of each month will be a 6:30pm service, open to all but scheduled to accomodate families with younger children. Please contact Deanie at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in helping. We have other volunteer opportunities available as well!
