OZ is a vibrant social center for an inclusive, multigenerational congregation that fosters friendship and caring between all of our 300 member families. We come from many Jewish paths and embrace our diversity as our greatest strength. At OZ we strive to build and maintain a Jewish community where you always have a family and a home.
We recognize that the study of Torah is a life-long endeavor. We respectfully engage the tradition of our sages and, together, shape its meaning for our own time. We engage young families, children, teenagers, and adults of all ages in educational experiences that deepen their understanding of their own Judaism and its place in the larger world.
We shape joyful and meaningful forms of prayer and meditation, cherishing our tradition while embracing innovation, to meet the diverse needs of our community and foster the celebration of Judaism. We encourage the exploration of our own personal paths through Judaism while seeking to remain grounded in our connection to the shared communal experience of prayer.
