Welcome to Congregation Ohr Torah 

Congregation Ohr Torah is a vibrant and diverse Orthodox synagogue located in the northwest section of West Orange, New Jersey. Our shul, established in 1992, continues to develop as its membership increases. The constant influx of Jewish families also supports local kosher restaurants, day schools, eruvim, mikvaot, and Judaica shops. The warm and welcoming atmosphere of Ohr Torah ensures that congregants of all ages feel at home.

We invite you to come for a Shabbat and experience our friendly and heimishe atmosphere.

New Assistant Rabbi- Avi Hoffman

Rabbi Spivak and the Board of Congregation Ohr Torah are pleased to announce that Avi Hoffman, our beloved youth director for the past two years, will take on the additional role of Assistant Rabbi for Congregation Ohr Torah this year.

In this new role, Avi will work with Rabbi Spivak to strengthen the Ohr Torah community by expanding learning opportunities throughout the week, enhancing our davening, and, of course, continuing creative and dynamic youth and teen programming.

We have seen firsthand all that Avi can accomplish as a youth director and we are excited to see all the “magic” he will bring to the Shul this year as assistant Rabbi! 

About Avi:

Originally from Brooklyn, Avi Hoffman earned his B.A. in Political Science from Touro University in 2019. He is currently completing Semikhah at RIETS, a certificate in Mental Health Counseling at Ferkauf, and a Masters in Medieval Jewish History at Revel. He also teaches at Columbia University through OU-JLIC. An avid magician, Avi is working on a book of original magic for magicians and a book on the intersection between magic, performance art, and Halacha. His past summer included a rabbinic mission to Israel, an ethics conference in Poland and Germany, a chaplaincy role at the BSA’s National Jamboree in West Virginia, and a magic convention in Las Vegas
