We are delighted to introduce ourselves to you!

We hope you will find that OCCS is a warm, welcoming community of people of all ages and backgrounds who come together to pray, study, celebrate, socialize, raise families, support one another in good times and bad, participate in social action, and pass the traditions of Judaism on to our children. We are a traditional Conservative synagogue, egalitarian and highly participatory. For many of us, OCCS is where we find our home as Jews and blossom spiritually. Our members enjoy participating in and leading services and programs at OCCS.

We look forward to getting to know you and hope that you, too, will become part of the OCCS family.

Who we are


Along the wide spectrum of our membership are scholars of Judaic studies and members who have minimal knowledge of the Torah. We are lucky to have several individuals new to Judaism, as well as individuals who grew up deeply involved in Yiddishkeit; others who are just beginning to learn about their roots, several inter-religious families, and more. We look forward to remarkable growth as more Jews in our community discover the treasures that we have to offer, and others seek us out to learn about our faith and culture.

Everyone is welcome at all of our services. Shul shopping? Please try us a few times and let us know what you think. Be sure to introduce yourself so that we can personally greet you and answer any questions you might have about our synagogue and community.
