You are part of our warm and loving home here at Or Ami, where we mark the most profound events in our lives as we celebrate and mourn with one another — where we find friendship, camaraderie, support and understanding.

As a community, our Jewish “souls” live at Or Ami — it is where we find strength as a community, celebrate the cycle of seasons and Jewish time. Our liturgy speaks to the mind and the heart through prayer, music, discussion and reflection — where we become holy as Jews and we work to make the world a better place.

Our legacy donors are forward-thinking partners, like you, who want to guarantee that those who come after us will be embraced in the welcoming arms of Or Ami.
