Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus

On Friday, Sept. 7, Congregation Or Shalom hosted an outdoor Shabbat Service under the Gazebo on the Orange Fairgrounds.
Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus invited the entire community, both members of the congregation and prospective members to join in the sing-along service during which he played guitar and led the large crowd in song.
Although some weather forecasters were predicting stifling humidity, G_D was smiling down on the Rabbi, and sent pleasant weather with a slight breeze for the service.
Congregation Or Shalom is located at 205 Old Grassy Hill Road. Visit the website for more information about their events and services.
