Congregation Ohav Shalom is an egalitarian Conservative synagogue affiliated with the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism. The name “Ohav Shalom” means “Lover of Peace.” We are known for being a warm, embracing, and friendly synagogue family.
HAZAK, which means ”strength” in Hebrew, is the award-winning nationwide synagogue program for people ages 60+, that was created by the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. Ohav is in the process of starting a HAZAK chapter, which will draw upon of the wisdom, experience, and leadership talents of this vital demographic of our community.
Israel is a land of ancient and modern miracles, and an amazing place for Jews and non Jews alike. If you are thinking of going to Israel, please consider joining us for our popular biennial Ohav Shalom Israel mission. All are welcome, and we make every effort to accommodate a variety of age groups. The next mission will take place on February 12-23, 2014.
