Dear Fellow Congregants,

Passover is perhaps the most family-oriented of Jewish holidays. As we sit around our tables, we retell the story of our exodus from Egypt and our journey to freedom. We remember as if we ourselves left Egypt. We honor our freedom but take time to remember our past hardships. We celebrate our liberation, our vibrant history and look ahead to the promise of the future.

It is this commitment to living true to our fundamental Jewish values, remembering when we were strangers in a strange land, and living a meaningful Jewish life that is the very heart and soul of Ohav Shalom.In this season, as much as ever, we ask that you acknowledge our ability to grow stronger as a congregation by showing your support just as we were bolstered by communal fortitude during our exodus.

Please visit our donation page to easily make donations online. In honor of Passover, we’ve included a sale on all Tree of Life Leaves and Pew Plaques. I wish you and your family a joyous Passover and thank you for your support to help our congregation continue to go from strength to strength.
