Note from Melissa Caplan, clergy administrative assistant

We encourage you to keep us updated on the Yartzheit information of your loved ones. As the Yartzheit date approaches, we will send an e-mail with a reminder and also invite you to join at Sunday morning or weekday evening Minyan, Friday evening and Shabbat morning services to recite Kaddish.  We have also renewed a long time pre-Covid tradition of inviting those observing a Yartzheit during the week to share a group Aliyah on Shabbat morning.   

For Yartzheit updates, please contact our Clergy Administrative Assistant, Melissa Caplan at mcaplan@ohev.org or at 215-322-9595 x110

If you would like to add a loved one to our private REFUAH SHLEMAH - prayer for healing - list, please click here. Rabbi Perlstein and Cantor Ocanto-Romo will privately add their name to the list as the prayer is chanted.
