Yahad Hebrew School

Congregation Or Shalom of Orange, Connecticut, invites you to celebrate Judaism in our friendly, family-oriented synagogue.

Experience our "services-in-the-round" which enhance our sense of community and inclusiveness. Stand beside us in our commitment to social action--Tikun Olam--repairing and healing the world. Join us as we discover the ancient texts of our heritage and the light they shed on the issues of today.

Congregation Or Shalom is an egalitarian Conservative synagogue, drawn to tradition as well as aspiring to innovation. We welcome interfaith families and our religious school welcomes interfaith families raising Jewish children. And at Congregation Or Shalom, our LGBTQ members feel warmly included. Our members reside in the greater New Haven area Eastern Fairfield County, and the Naugatuck Valley, and encompass a spectrum of ages, political orientations and levels of Jewish observance. Yet, we all feel connected
