Friendships are made here!
The Men’s Club offers the opportunity to expand one’s circle of friends, to get involved in Jewish affairs, and to contribute to our Congregation.
PATHS TO COMMUNITY
The Men’s Club is an auxiliary organization. Our primary purpose is to provide social, educational, cultural and spiritual services for the men, as well as for the broader community. While we provide opportunities for men in our congregation to gather together for fellowship, recreation, personal growth and mutual support, we also work to support the mission, services and activities of the Congregation.
We devote most of our time and resources to activities in these four areas:
- Social interaction among the men of the congregation in order to build friendships among men and their families in support of our objective of building Jewish “Community” among our members.
- Intellectual interests of men in the Congregation. We will program for the unique needs and interests of men, being sensitive to the role men play in modern American families, egalitarian congregational life, and in Jewish family life.
- Spiritual interests of men in the Congregation. These spiritual interests are founded in our Jewish traditions, but open to modern approaches to spirituality, especially men’s spirituality.
- The interests of our men ing’milut hasadim (deeds of kindness) and tikkun olam (working to serve and improve our congregation, our local community and our world).

The word havurah comes from the word haver, meaning friend. A havurah is a small group of individuals who gather together for a variety of reasons: to socialize, celebrate Jewish holidays, learn more about Judaism, and participate in social action projects.
Most importantly, a havurah provides an opportunity for you to meet others who share your values and interests.
- Celebrate Jewish holidays together
- Study together
- Social action projects
- Travel together
- Pray together
- Your Havurah becomes your extended family
- Havurot create secure and constant ties to the wider Jewish community
- Havurot help Judaism remain a constant source of joy
New havurot are now being formed, including an new Empty Nesters Havurah and a Single Parents Havurah.

Social action is very important at Temple Or Hadash. We believe in Tikkun Olam, repairing the world and making it a better place. This involves more than just writing a check to a worthy cause. It requires action, engagement, and commitment from all our members, from the most senior adult to the youngest child in Religious School.
For the past several years, Or Hadash has focused on the needs of a sometimes invisible group deserving attention: the homeless. We discard the stereotypical idea of what a homeless person might look like and realize that one in four of the homeless people in our community is a child. That many families “couch surf” or use their cars as overnight shelters. That a homeless person looks just like we do.
By teaming with Homeless Gear, housed in the Sister Mary Alice Murphy Center, Or Hadash has collected items needed in winter: coats, hats, mittens, and boots. Our Religious School students took on the responsibility of feeding the homeless. They collected, organized and delivered to Homeless Gear ready-to-go nutritious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners in easily transportable sacks. Or Hadash families volunteered their time to help homeless families avail themselves of the many services at the Murphy Center to bring these families a more joyous holiday season.
At Or Hadash, we take social action seriously. We are engaged, involved, and encouraged by our contributions, individually and collectively, to Tikkun Olam.
