Make Friends

Ohev offers many ways to make new friends.  We have congregants who would love to accompany you to an event or a service. Contact the office and a congregant will be in touch.

There’s something for everyone!

Musicals – What better way to bond than on stage, or backstage, of the Ohev Players’ biannual musical!

Shabbat B’Yachad – Several times a year, members of the community join for a potluck (dairy/vegetarian) Shabbat dinner followed by a musical service in the round. See calendar for dates.

Oy Vey 5K – In the fall, this family friendly 1 mile walk or 5k or 10k run supports Mispallelim, Ohev Shalom’s Hebrew School.

Join us for services – Our committed core of daily “minyan-aires” would be delighted to meet you at 8:00 AM Monday – Friday and 9:00 AM Saturday-Sunday.  Kabbalat Shabbat services weekly at 6:00 PM.  Children are welcome in all services (though sometimes we find them giggling in the lounge).

For Kids and teens – Enroll in Mispallelim (our Hebrew School) or volunteer after your Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Contact the Youth Committee or Rabbi Miller for current teen offerings.

Volunteer – Ohev Shalom thrives because of volunteers like you. Whether you’d like to commit to a regular schedule in the office or gift shop, or want to help with one day of service, there’s an opportunity with your name on it.  Here’s just a sample of ways to get involved:

  • Deliver meals or provide a ride to ill or homebound congregants (Chesed Committee)
  • Work in the Ohev office or Gift Shop
  • Join a committee, like Ritual, School, Youth, Lifelong Learning, Interfaith, Development, Facilities, and more.
  • Help to build the sukkah, plan the Purim carnival, send High Holiday cards, plan a movie night.
  • Read Torah, take a class, attend a lecture.
  • Sign up to be a buddy for a new congregant
  • Host a Shabbat dinner
