The OJCA is a Synagogue (Beth Shalom Synagogue) and Community Centre (OJCC) located in the heart of the Okanagan Valley in kelowna, British Columbia. With a diverse membership consisting of Jews with Orthodox, Conservative and Reform backgrounds, the Okanagan Jewish community has
styled itself to conduct its services and celebrate holidays in an all inclusive fashion. As a result of the strength which this diversity brings, the OJCA has evolved to be a progressive Jewish community with a growing and enthusiastic membership. As well, the OJCA has historically maintained an active involvement and a strong presence in the mainstream of the culturally diverse Okanagan community at large.
Sincere Condolences for our Islamic friends:
The Okanagan Jewish Community sends its sincere condolences to our friends in grieving over the recent horrific shootings in Quebec City. We are all on this earth together not to segregate and build walls but to interstate and build communities.
In response to Sunday's attack on a Quebec City Mosque the Kelowna Islamic Centre will be holding an evening vigil tonight (Tuesday).
The vigil will take place:
TIme: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Mosque located at 1120 – Highway 33.
Board member Hamid Butt says the vigil is open to the entire community regardless of their faith.

Gesher HaHar: Bridging the Mountains
A Pilot Project of Collaboration
Beth Tzedec Congregation & OJCA
Every Jewish community regardless of size or locale serves as an important thread woven into the tapestry of the Jewish People. The diversity of the Jewish experience enriches Jewish religious and cultural practices as it expands the Jewish capacity to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Beth Tzedec (Calgary) on the east side of the Canadian Rockies and the Okanagan Jewish Community Association (OJCA) on the western side share a common Jewish milieu in the setting of the independent and individualist spirit of Western Canada.
NEXT BETH TZEDEC VISITOR: Cantor Russ - January 20 and 21
The Benefits of Gesher HaHar: Pilot Project of Collaboration is that it enhances the resources of our smaller community so that it can be a viable setting for the celebration of Jewish life while it challenges the established to act on the important mitzvah of sustaining Klah Yisrael- Jewish Peoplehood.
