Welcome to Congregation Or Ami! We are thrilled you are joining the partnership that is our congregational community.

Please fill in your contact information below.

Adult 1

Adult 2



*Please provide us with your child(ren)'s cell phone (if applicable), so our rabbis can be in touch with them, when necessary.


We want to make sure that we have a complete list of Yahrzeit dates (anniversary of death) so we can send you a reminder of when to say Kaddish (memorial prayer). Please enter your Yahrzeit information below.


We invite you to be part of this vibrant Jewish community. Our partnership (membership) levels provide you with a personalized vibrant Jewish experience within a community committed to social action, Torah learning, and meaningful relationships. Your commitment opens doors for your family to enjoy exciting events as a part of a warm, inspiring, and musical community.

The actual cost of maintaining Or Ami's operations is approximately $5,000 per household. Committing at the Sustainer level enables us to completely cover our cost, and ensures Or Ami's vibrant future.
