Welcome to Oraynu

Whether you're a cultural or secular Jew, agnostic, intermarried, single or partnered, LGBTQ, Jewishly-involved or seeking Jewish connection, we warmly welcome you to join our community.

Join us for our unique, inspiring services to mark the High Holidays. Come experience our humanistic liturgy filled with powerful readings, evocative poetry and wonderful music, rather than prayer.

Children's School registration is now open for the fall session; JK-Grade 7 and Bnai Mitzvah program.
