Dear Friends,

We hope that you are all doing well and staying healthy. In light of the Orange County Emergency Executive Order that was issued on Tuesday, the synagogue building will be closed beginning Friday, March 27th until Monday, April 13th at the earliest (while the order is in effect until April 9th, the synagogue would have been closed on April 9th and 10th for the first 2 days of Passover).

Staff will be working remotely as best they can. They will be checking e-mails throughout the day as well as checking their voicemail. 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’ll be in regular contact through e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, keeping you up to date with the latest information on virtual services, classes, programs, and more. Please see below for a current listing.

Thank you all for your understanding. 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
