rabbi danny side medBeginning on February 23, 2014, Or Shalom Jewish Community will formally celebrate its new home at 9 jsynagogues katie mizrahiCongregation Beth Israel Judea on Brotherhood Way in San Francisco. Both Congregations and their Rabbis are thrilled to announce this milestone, and believe it will create a new and exciting Jewish presence in San Francisco that will strengthen both communities by expanding the spiritual, religious, and educational opportunities available to both.

This new Village of Jewish Communities on Brotherhood Way will form a broader and deeper Jewish community from which all members can benefit. It will be a beacon to unaffiliated Jews and their extended families and will make the entire campus more vibrant and more appealing to prospective members of both communities.

Feisty Old Jew is the story of a 20th-century man living  in a 21st-century city. It's also a fast, wild ride through the fertile comic mind of the man the SF Chronicle calls "San Francisco's brightest satiric star" - who also happens to be a member of Or Shalom!  For more information, check the The Marsh web site.
