CONGREGATION OR SHALOM TO FEATURE OPEN COMMUNITY YIZKOR

Congregation Or Shalom, the only Conservative synagogue in Orange, is offering all non-members an opportunity to come to a free community-wide Yizkor Memorial Service on Yom Kippur Day (September 23) at 4:00 PM.

This service, which will last under an hour, is open to the public without any membership obligation. The Service will be led by the synagogue’s Ritual Committee Chair, Robert Spaulding and his wife Tova Clayman.

Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus, the synagogue’s spiritual leader, noted that this is an opportunity for Or Shalom to help fill a void among non-affiliated Jews in and around the Orange community. “Everyone should have the opportunity to come say Yizkor for their departed relatives and we hope they will come and take advantage of this opportunity,” Wainhaus said.

Congregation Or Shalom is located at 205 Old Grassy Hill Road in Orange.
