Youth Lag Ba'Omer Event

Lag B’omer youth event was blown up at Ohr Torah with its Archery tag, bounce house, and 30 ft target practice soccer goal. We were on fire with our local fire firefighters as they came with the fire trucks and let us spray the fire hose. We got fire hats and special fire safety activity sets and had a blast!

Sisterhood's Shabbat Bake Swap

Cooking for your family week after week is a chore, but cooking for a community member can add a little inspiration to your dish. Since we haven’t been able to have our neighbors over during this time, the Ohr Torah sisterhood hosted a “Bake Swap” where families baked Shabbat dessert for each other. It was a chance to break out our finest Bundt pans and fancy dessert recipes. The results looked amazing, tastes better and the sense of community couldn't come at a more needed time.

Men's Club Insight Breakfast Series: Power Prosecution

The Men’s Club as part of the Insight Breakfast Events, hosted Glenn D. Goldberg who gave an informative, emotional, and fact-based presentation on the topic of “Power Prosecution." Glenn spoke about a few of the high profile, public interest cases he tried over the course of his 30 years as a Prosecutor. The presentation contained dramatic examples of Courtroom events, such as when a defendant jumped out a third-floor window upon being pronounced Guilty of First Degree Murder by the Jury. We want to thank Glenn for his impressive presentation that kept all of the attendees on the edge of their seats.

Featured Speaker: 
Jonah Ottensoser
, "Technology and the Observant Jew"

On Sunday evening, February 24, Ohr Torah hosted a talk by Jonah Ottensoser of the Star-K on the topic Technology and the Orthodox Jew. Mr. Ottensoser has been an engineering consultant with the Star-K for over 20 years. He has consulted with many of the large appliance manufacturers and it is partially thanks to him that we have the availability of so many “Sabbath Mode” appliances.
