 The Ohav Shalom building is currently closed. We are monitoring the advice from public health and government experts regarding necessary steps to be safe and to stop the spread of the coronavirus. While we are anxious to return to our building and see everyone in person, we will wait until we are advised that it is safe to do so. Stay home and be safe.
