Rabbis' Welcome

Welcome to Congregation Ohav Shalom!

Welcome to Congregation Ohav Shalom!

We are Rabbi Dan Ornstein and Rabbi Rena Kieval. We are committed to creating a synagogue community that is welcoming and supportive, and dedicated to serious engagement with Jewish practice, study and worship. We work to create opportunities for Jews of all ages, backgrounds and observance levels to enhance their connection to Jewish life and to the Jewish people.

We are proud of our rabbinic team model, in which we are both deeply involved in all aspects of synagogue life and in addressing the religious, educational, life cycle and pastoral needs of our community.
Please be in touch with us if we can be of assistance, or if you want to know more about being part of the Ohav family.

We look forward to seeing you at Ohav Shalom.
Rabbi Rena and Rabbi Dan
