COVID-19 UPDATE

July 28, 2021

 

Join COS for In-Person or Virtual Shabbat Services

Coming in person?

  • Face masks are required for all congregants and visitors entering the synagogue.
  • Respect the different comfort levels of fellow congregants. Some may be fine chatting but without physical contact. Others are good with an elbow or fist-bump, while some are ready for a hug. It is okay to ask!
  • Practice good hygiene by washing hands regularly or using hand sanitizer. Sanitizer dispensers are available in the lobby and sanctuary, including a touchless automatic dispenser in the lobby.
  • The Play & Pray Room at the back of the sanctuary is available for single-family use by reservation or, if not reserved, on a first come, first-served basis.
  • Some rows in the sanctuary will remain closed for social distancing as indicated by gold ropes.
  • Please review Congregation Ohev Shalom’s revised COVID-19 safety procedures, which can be found HERE.

For those who prefer to attend services via online streaming, our daily minyan and Shabbat services will continue to be streamed and will be available on LiveStream, Facebook, and the Ohev Shalom website home page.   




 

We offer a variety of Friday night and Saturday morning experiences that will spark your interest and uplift your spirit. Our warm and haimish Shabbat services engage all ages and backgrounds to participate, are fully egalitarian, and maintain the beautiful traditions of modern Conservative Judaism. 

In addition, our innovative special services and Shabbat learning experiences offer fresh and inspiring Jewish connection. And the Orlando Community Weekday Minyan offers services each morning from Sunday to Friday.

All are welcome!




 

SHABBAT

 

FRIDAY NIGHT

 

Traditional Friday Night Service [7:30 p.m.]

Join Rabbi Murray Ezring and Cantor Allan Robuck on his keyboard in our chapel for a joyful, engaging service with all of the traditional prayers. 

 

 

SATURDAY MORNING

 

Shabbat Morning Sanctuary Service [9:30] 

Our Shabbat morning service is full of singing and congregant participation. Torah reading is handled by our Yad Squad, volunteer congregants of all ages and backgrounds. Rabbi Ezring delivers a heartfelt message dealing with the spiritual and contemporary issues of our time.

We celebrate many life cycle events at our Saturday morning service: Bar and Bat Mitzvah, wedding aufrufs, baby namings, birthdays and wedding anniversaries, and more. It is a true celebration of our Judaism: its teachings, songs, and prayers and the sharing together of the joys of our congregational family.

 




 

NO DAVENING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

Not familiar with the liturgy? Can’t read Hebrew? Don’t let that stop you from joining in with our congregational family.

We periodically offer learning opportunities for reading Hebrew, for becoming more familiar with the prayer services, and for reading from the Torah. Click here to check for upcoming classes.
