Membership

We are very lucky to live in an area where there are several wonderful synagogue communities from which to choose. We encourage you to visit us at Congregation Ohev Shalom, a warm, friendly, engaging, spiritual, and inclusive place that might fit your needs.

You may have noticed that our logo contains the tagline, “Bringing Judaism to Life in Delaware County.” We really love this tagline, because it articulates several of the core values that we believe are at the heart of what it means to be Jewish.

  • Judaism is ALIVE! This is not your grandparents’ Judaism. Our services are lively, fun, and spiritual, and we encourage participation from all our congregants in an informal atmosphere. We embrace the values of Conservative Judaism, which challenge us to bring traditional Jewish practice into our modern, secular lives.
  • Our neighbors and our neighborhood are essential to our identity. We are a part of Delaware County, and we love engaging with the other faith organizations, with Social Action projects, and with all people in the area.
  • Most importantly, it’s not a completed project. “Bringing…” – we’re still working at it! We’re constantly evolving and adjusting, and every new member brings new ideas and new energy to the Ohev family.

So try us out! Membership is free for the first year and you don’t need to make a decision about membership immediately. We’d love to have you join us for any of our daily services or any of our upcoming events. Please let us know if you’d like to be contacted for more information, or if you’d simply like to be signed up for our weekly email list.
