Open house at Ohef Sholom

by | Aug 15, 2014 | What’s Happening

Sunday, Sept. 7, 10 am–12:30 pm

Ohef Sholom Temple will host an Open House for guests to get a “taste” of what the temple is all about, including High Holy Day services and activities information, samples of a children’s prayer service led by Rabbi Roz Mandelberg and Cantor Wally Schachet-Briskin, a Torah Study class, and much more.

Volunteers from the various committees will give tours, describe volunteer opportunities and answer questions.

Organized by Nichole Kushner and Marnie Waldman, co-chairs of the membership committee, the Open House is designed to welcome new and prospective members, as well as reengage current members who may not know all the Temple offers.

“Ohef Sholom offers something for everyone,” says Kushner. “Our goal with the Open House, and the original idea of our president, Linda Fox-Jarvis, is for unaffiliated Jews living in Hampton Roads to be able to get a sampling of the rich variety of activities offered at OST. Whether serving on our Armed Forces Committee, getting involved in our Sisterhood or Men’s Club, attending interfaith family activities, volunteering for our Special Needs Committee, just to name a few, Ohef Sholom has an abundance of opportunities to get involved in Jewish life in a way that fits each person’s needs.”
