Welcome to Congregation Ohr Torah


Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience at Ohr Torah
Be A Part of It!
In memory of Joel Adler, a'h

Congregation Ohr Torah has embarked on an all-important initiative, 'Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience', in memory of our esteemed and beloved gabbai, member, and friend, Joel Adler, a'h.
Please click here to download the letter that introduces this initiative, including the intent, a call to action, and the benefits of your active participation. Our goal is 100% participation that creates a strong bond of achdus (unity) in our shul. Act now and commit to being counted among those who actively participate in this all-important initiative that will bring us closer to Hakadosh Baruch Hu and enhance the power of our tefillos.
Please click here to download the Bli Neder Commitment to 'Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience'. Either sign the paper form and return it to the shul or conveniently enter your name below, which acknowledges your Bli Neder Commitment that is enumerated in this form.
If you wish to become further involved in supporting this initiative, or have additional ideas, please speak with Shelley Schoenfeld or email:
Parshas Ki Savo describes that Hashem heard the voices/supplications of the Jewish people. May Hashem hear each of our voices as they ascend from the depths of our hearts to the heights of the shamayim (heavens), and may our efforts make our tefillos more effective and meaningful as well as bring nachas to every one of us and great simcha to our lives as we each do our part to grow closer to Hashem.

I, Full Name: have read and agree to the Bli Neder Commitment to 'Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience'.


Yom Tov Babysitting

Once again Ohr Torah is proud to offer babysitting on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. We are requesting a voluntary contribution of $18 per family to help defray the cost of the babysitting. Please make checks out to Ohr Torah and indicate HH babysitting on your check.
The times for our babysitting are as follows:
9/14 (RH) -- 10 am to 1:30 pm
9/15 (RH) -- 10 am to 1:30 pm
9/22 (YK) -- 6:45 pm to 9:15 pm
9/23 (YK) -- 10 am to 2:30 pm and 5 pm to 7 pm
This service is for all children ages 1-4. It is imperative that all children attending our babysitting are able to walk (and not need to be held) and that parents please ensure that our staff is aware of your seating location should we need to find you. We will have a seating chart available. Also please provide our staff with any baby wipes/diapers as needed. We will be unable to accommodate children who have not reached their first birthday.
