Honoring Family & Friends

There are many ways to honor the memory of family or friends. Similarly, we offer opportunities to say thank you or congratulations for special events or accomplishments.

Our Torah Project

Congregation Ohr Shalom is creating our own new and beautiful Torah. Honor a loved one, commemorate special event, or say Mazel Tov for a joyous occasion by sponsoring a part of the Torah. We are lucky to have a nationally-celebrated Torah scribe, Linda Coppleson, as a member of our congregation, to lead us in this endeavor.

Visit Our Torah Project, for more information about the Torah Project.
