PURIM AT OR OLAM

Saturday, March 11th

 

Evening Service and Megillah Reading at 7:30

Musical Celebration with Elan Bortniker at 8:30

 

 

Shimmy down to Or Olam for a 1920s-inspired Purim celebration. Elan Bortniker and his band are back at Or Olam by popular demand for our musical celebration of the holiday. We’ll have a Ma’ariv service with Megillah reading in the Sanctuary at 7:30, followed by food, drink and foot-tapping entertainment in the Social Hall at 8:30. 1920s costumes encouraged!

 

Free and open to the public, but we ask for pre-registration to ensure enough food and drink for all. Please register here.


 

Or Olam is a welcoming, egalitarian, diverse, and multigenerational community. We worship using the traditional liturgy, with both creative and classical melodies, and enjoy the company of new and old friends after services, during our many study opportunities, and at our special programs. 

Our Vision

  • 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.
