Make Or Atid Your Spiritual Home

Join Or Atid resizedWhy Or Atid is unique

When you walk through the doors of our synagogue, you'll find the warmth and intimacy of a small congregation where the Rabbi knows everyone's name;  a place that offers you and your family countless ways to be part of our welcoming community; and a membership of people who share the same vision of spiritual, social and intellectual growth and the importance of Tikkun Olam and helping those in need.

All welcomed at Or Atid

Whether you are single or partnered; gay or straight; Jewishly involved or seeking Jewish connection; from an interfaith or a Jewish home; be part of our welcoming community. Come talk with our Rabbi Sally Finestone and tell her your needs and wants to make your Jewish experience the most meaningful for you and your family. Our synagogue community is represented by a rainbow of members who come from different backgrounds and family make-up, but all blend together in the love and warmth of our Or Atid family.
