Congegation Or Chadash

Congregation Or Chadash is a Jewish religious organization whose purpose is to provide a warm, affirming, Jewish community where all people can feel welcome. To accomplish this mission, Or Chadash will:

Remember that it was founded as an answer to the prejudice that gay and lesbian Jews experienced in other synagogues;

Strive to ensure that no Jew experiences prejudice within our community;

Maintain affiliations with the Union for Reform Judaism and the World Congress of Gay and Lesbian Jewish Organizations;

Build strong ties within the greater Jewish community of the metropolitan Chicago area;

Dedicate itself to the basic obligations of Jewish life, including:

  • Respecting the contributions of people of all generations
  • Sharing the life-cycle events of its members
  • Celebrating Shabbat and the holidays
  • Fostering prayer with sincerity
  • Visiting the sick
  • Comforting the bereaved
  • Encouraging the study of Torah

Congregation Or Chadash is a not-for-profit organization that is largely supported by contributions from its members and friends.  Please remember us generously.
