Honoring the new month of Shevat, please bring your tree art to show the group! Do you have an Etz Chayim drawing? An Israeli wood sculpture?
In this week’s Torah portion, we learn about the last three plagues, the first ever Passover Seder, and the exodus from Egypt. This evening, we will focus on how aspects of the exodus story have been represented in works of art throughout history, from ancient synagogue wall paintings, through Medieval haggadot, to today’s creations.

We are justifiably proud of all that OJC offers in a formal sense, we know that no level of programming or religious services can ever beat that intangible sense of “connection” that all of OJC’s long-time members feel for each other and for the place many of us call our “second home.” It is our hope that you will come to know OJC for what it really is – not a place where you and your children have to go, but a place where you want to be. Experience our past events.
