About Us

Ohev Shalom is a community large enough to allow everyone to find people with similar interests, but small enough for everyone to feel like they are part of a family. We offer religious services, a daily minyan, a vibrant religious school, an award-winning USY chapter, lots of educational opportunities and a strong social action program.

With roots in 19th century Chester, Ohev Shalom has been an integral part of the Jewish community in Delaware County for close to 100 years. Generations of Jews have made Ohev Shalom their spiritual home – a place to pray, learn, form friendships and share life’s joys and sorrows.
