We're So Excited to Meet You!

Welcome to Or Haneshamah!

Our Annual Fundraising Campaign is Now Open!

Each year we ask our members to contribute what they can to our annual fundraising campaign. The funds we raise with this campaign cover an essential portion of our everyday operating expenses. This year, to honour the 32nd anniversary of Or Haneshamah's founding, we are asking for a goal of $32, 000. In Hebrew, the number 32 is written "לב" or "lev", which is also the Hebrew word for heart. If you are able to give to our campaign, please give with your heart.

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.
