JOIN US FOR THE HIGH HOLY DAYS 

This year Rosh Hashanah begins with services on the evening of Sunday, September 9th; Kol Nidre services are the evening of Tuesday, September 18th. A full calendar of our services can be downloaded here.

If you’re not already a member, we invite you to spend the High Holy Days at Or Olam. Or Olam is one of the few synagogues in New York City with only one set of services, led by senior clergy in a beautiful, intimate, recently-renovated sanctuary. We even offer reserved seating for everyone.

If you’ve been to any of our services or concerts, you’ve heard Cantor Shiree Kidron’s soaring voice and heard Rabbi Eugene Wernick’s inspiring words. They conduct truly meaningful High Holy Day services. Our High Holy Day services use “Lev Shalem,” the beautiful Conservative Mahzor, with both traditional and new melodies.

Annual membership to Or Olam comes with High Holy Day tickets; tickets are also available separately. Click here for more information, or call our office at 212.752.1200 to chat with us or to make an appointment to visit and meet with Rabbi Wernick.

 

Our Goals at Or Olam:

  • To be known as the premier synagogue for those seeking a warm, friendly, unpretentious, yet intellectually and spiritually challenging expression of Judaism.
  • To provide many opportunities for prayer, study of Torah, and acts of communal caring.
  • To continue to broaden our congregation’s long standing historical diversity in the background, demography, sexual orientation, and levels of knowledge of our congregants, and through that diversity expand our openness, kindness, generosity of spirit, good-heartedness, and our hunger to learn and grow.
  • To provide high quality programing and worship opportunity to benefit to the greater Manhattan community.
  • To provide for all those who join our community new insights and a stronger connection to God, Torah, the people of Israel, and the State of Israel.
  • To have strong relationships with other Jewish and interfaith organizations that share our values, through which we will both learn and teach, and give and receive assistance.

We are proud supporters of The Jewish Theological Seminary.  We are also members of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, and have an active Women's League Chapter of the National Women's League for Conservative Judaism.
