We are delighted to welcome back Rabbi Schachar Orenstein from Montreal for our first Shabbaton weekend of 2024!

Join us on Friday evening, February 16th, at 6 pm for an Oneg Shabbat potluck dinner followed by a lively Kabbalat Shabbat service! The Rabbi brings his charisma back to the bimah on Saturday morning, February 17th, for an engaging morning service and a potluck kiddush luncheon.

A great friend of the OJC, Rabbi Orenstein’s musical and philosophical approach to Judaism is always delightful. We’re really looking forward to his visit, we hope you are, too!


This wonderful Shabbaton weekend is sponsored in part by a generous donation from the Zacks Family Charitable Foundation.
Rabbi Jonathan Infeld and Lissa Weinberger
