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.
Beth Shalom/Oceanside Jewish Center affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, is an egalitarian congregation and a nurturing community which provides opportunities for Jews of all ages and backgrounds to live in the presence of G-d through religious observance, Jewish learning (read about our new Beit Midrash) and acts of social responsibility.
Learn about getting involved in our community and clubs (including PTA, Sisterhood, Youth Group (JOY), and Mens Club) about our Religious School, our calendar of events, our Beit Midrash, and our opportunities for Aliyahs or honors.
