Davening at OC is amazing- Wonderful and singable melodies, meaningful words of Torah, and warm atmosphere! A special thanks to all who daven on Shabbat, share words of Torah, help with our children, set up and clean up after Kiddush/ Seudah Shelishit, and who tend to all the critical details that made our time in shul so special. Thank you to all of the people who come to add to our meaningful experience! It is great having so many children at OC, enjoying our youth program opportunities! 

We love when our youngest members participate at the end of tefillah...please encourage them sing Adon Olam in front of the Aron. It is so cute when they open the Aron and spend time in shul participating. Practicing at home, may help!



Rabbi Moshe Kletenik, Rivy Poupko Kletenik, and Dr. Shlomo Goldberg, thank you for the weekly classes you offer! Specific information comes to class participants by way of flyers and the OC weekly e-newsletter.

Shabbat and holiday greeters- Thank you for helping our guests feel comfortable at OC! Many visitors have expressed appreciation for Ohr Chadash being a warm and welcoming place.  In truth, we are all greeters, so thanks to all for your participation in Hachnasat Orchim, Welcoming Guests. 

Shabbat and holiday counselors, thank you! You help keep our children happy, safe, and engaged. Please remember to say thank you to them! Todah Rabah!

Thank you to our official Kiddush Teams and other volunteer helpers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We cannot accomplish all we do without your help.

Jana Miller and Bayla Friedman Treiger are gathering important dates, including birthdays, anniversaries, and Bar/Bat Mitzvah Parshiyot. Feel free to send them info about you and your children, which may not have been shared on your membership application. Jana or Bayla will also contact you to as they attempt to "fill in the blanks." This info will help us in forming youth programs and sharing in your smachot, while making our data base more complete. Thank you for your helpful responses.

Ruth Aaronson- Ohr Chadash loves having guests and we hope our guests love Ohr Chadash as much as we do. Visitors, please contact: adrienne.query@gmail.com or ruthaaronson@gmail.com and let them know how they can help!    OC Members. please let Adrienne and Ruth know that you want to help with meals or housing; please consider inviting someone new to your table...or someone who might be eating alone. Thank you!

Cleaning up after the event is important, too! Special thanks to our amazing Kiddush Team CaptainsKaren Weisstein, Karen Treiger, Jana Miller, Ruthie Voss, and Shoshanah Turpie, and all the people who help them weekly, officially or unofficially. 

GreetersTo join this very important Greeter Rotation or to help with coordinating Greeters, please email baylafriedmantreiger@gmail.com. 

Bayla Friedman Treiger coordinates our counselor and CIT rotations. Our youth are important OC members, so we are happy to offer them age-appropriate options when they are not in shul. Talk to Zev Feuer or Jason Shindler to see how you can become more involved with our youth! They are the Parent Point People who oversee our Shabbat morning programs for the Eitzim (6+) and Prachim (3-6) age groups. Parents are responsible for their own children and the Nitzanim room (0-3).

Counselors and CIT's- Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and offering a wonderful OC experience for your younger members.

Louis Treiger- Thank you for helping our boys learn the megillot and feel confident enough to read in shul.

Sara Weiss is our head mashgiach. Thank you, Sara, for all you do along with your team of mashgighim!

Jeremy Miller is heading up our Building Committee! The progress is exciting!

Karen Treiger heads our Shabbat of Learning program, arranging for various speakers and organizing community meals throughout the year.



Please visit our youth bulletin board for information regarding Shabbat and other programming.

Nitzanim, Blossoms, children ages 0-3: We have a room conveniently located off the Lobby in which parents can supervise children.

Prachim, Flowers, children ages 3-6: Meet in the last classroom downstairs with a supervisory rotation. Talk to Jason Shindler about signing up.

Eitzim, Trees, children ages 6+: Our first classroom downstairs offers a counselor supervised program.

For the safety of our youth, we ask that children not engaged in one of our programs should be in shul with a parent and not wandering the building or outside unsupervised. They are encouraged to join us for davening.

Material requests: Perhaps you have some less used, easy-to-clean toys and books to donate to the Fireside Room or Infant/ Toddler Room. We have a play kitchen for the children. Do you have some items for us to add to this area- pretend food (or durable, empty safe food containers from your own kitchen), pots and pans, dishes, etc. As our youth program grows, so do our needs. Your book and toy donations save us from having to buy new equipment.  Might you have a baby doll to donate? Perhaps, a doll stroller? Maybe an indoor riding toy for our Prachim?

!!!!!!Also, we are trying to collect a tub of outside play equipment including such items as basketballs, playground balls, and jump ropes. If you have anything to contribute, please talk to Bayla. In the nicer weather, it will be helpful for you to park cars away from the basketball hoop in the parking lot.

Does anyone have a spare ball pump and needle to donate or lend?
