On this Sabbath, join us exactly as you feel most comfortable in person or on Zoom. A few things to note about our service:

  • For those on Zoom, feel free to light your own Shabbat candles, share in drinking the wine/juice from your own Kiddush cups and taste the sweetness of challah at your house.
  • Please email Cantor Kathy Gohr ( no later than 5:00 PM on Friday with the names you would like her to read during the Mi Shebeirach.
  • If you need support or assistance using Zoom, please reach out to Betsy Zalaznick no later than 3:00 PM on Friday.
  • The link for Friday Night Services can always be found on our OC website Homepage.

I hope each of you is well. We look forward to sharing Shabbat with our Or Chadash community no matter how you attend.
