ברוכים הבאים -- Welcome


Dear Friends,

We hope that you are all doing well and staying healthy. In light of the Orange County Emergency Executive Order, the synagogue building closed on Friday, March 27th, and will remained closed until we're confident we can reopen safely.

Our staff is remotely, checking e-mail and voicemail throughout the day, as best they can. If you call the synagogue you will have access to the staff directory (dial the number 3 to get to the directory) to leave a voicemail message.

We realize we are all in uncertain times but please know that your synagogue is operating as normally as the ever-changing situation allows. We're keeping you upt to date through e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the latest information on virtual services, classes, programs, and more. Please see below for a current listing.

We’re here if you need us. Hope to see everyone soon.

Stay safe and healthy!

Hearing Loop Installed

Congregation Ohev Shalom has installed a Hearing Loop in the sanctuary, chapel, and ballrooms.  This is to assist those with hearing loss hear more clearly during services.  A Hearing Loop is an assistive listening system that transmits sound directly into one’s hearing aids or cochlear implants rather than depending on sound coming from the loudspeakers.  To receive the Loop signal and hear more clearly, you will need to manually activate your T-coil or “telephone” setting on your hearing aid or cochlear implant.  If you don’t know if you have a T-coil or whether yours is properly programmed, consult with your audiologist or hearing aid professional.  If you don’t wear hearing aids, ask to use a Loop receiver to receive the sound. 

       Ohev Shalom Shabbat morning services may be viewed on Livestream

Congregation Ohev Shalom is affiliated with
the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism
