We are Or Haneshamah: Ottawa's Reconstructionist Community.
Stay awhile and check out what we have to offer! 

Or Haneshamah is a vibrant, egalitarian and inclusive Reconstructionist Jewish community with an open door, open hearts and open minds. We welcome LGBTQ+ people, interfaith and multifaith families, and anyone looking to develop more of a relationship with Judaism or Jewish practices, regardless of personal history. If you are searching to belong to or return to Jewish connection and spirituality, we encourage you to come check us out!

OrH welcomes Jews, spiritual seekers, and their loved ones from all corners of the globe and from all cultural traditions and backgrounds. We are actively working to be an antiracist community that reflects and lives into our commitment to social justice and racial justice.
